A Muslim couple thought that everyone would be super happy to see them brag about their religion and even get a special service. The whole thing happened on a plane, and the couple did not receive the attention they were looking for. The flight attendant noticed what they were trying to do, and had the perfect response. Religious supremacy is not something you play with, right?
Delta Air was accused of “Islamophobia” and racial profiling, and these Muslim husband and wife thought they had everything under control. Did they forgot that Islam is not a race? It is an ideology. Remember that, guys!
The company allowed the crew to respond to the couple, and even released a statement to back up the decision of the flight attendant that tried to fix the situation.
Faisal and Nazia Ali played victims of racial discrimination after they were eliminated of the flight for conducting suspicious activity.
The Independent reported that the couple was waiting for 45 minutes on the flight from Paris to Cincinnati, Ohio. The steward noticed that they are were the only passengers to hide the phone when he came closer to them. They even repeated the word “Alah.”
The steward said that the couple aced off and did his best to secure the plane and everyone on it. He was even called a bigot, and told the pair to pick up their belongings and leave the plane.
“We asked if we should get our stuff and he said, ‘Yes, take all of your stuff as you won’t be on that flight’. That was really alarming,” Ali told The Independent.
A French police officer waited for the couple outside the gate.
“Delta condemns discrimination toward our customers in regards to age, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation or gender. As a global airline that brings hundreds of thousands of people together every day, Delta is deeply committed to treating all of our customers with respect. Delta continues its investigation into this matter and will issue a full refund of these customers’ airfare,” WCPO reported.
CAIR filed a complaint and accused the company of repeated profiling of Muslim passengers.
