    Muslim group: two imams pulled from plane bound for North Carolina

    By the CNN Wire Staff
    May 7, 2011 12:22 p.m. EDT

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    • NEW: Both men were prominent imams and dressed in Muslim attire
    • Airline apologizes but does not say why the men were taken off the plane
    • The men say they were told passengers were uncomfortable

    (CNN) -- An airline is investigating the removal of two imams from a flight headed to North Carolina, ostensibly because passengers felt uncomfortable with their presence of the pair -- both clad in Islamic attire.
    The incident occurred Friday on an Atlantic Southeast Airlines flight from Tennessee to North Carolina and it involved Masudur Rahman and Mohamed Zaghloul were wearing traditional Muslim dress, CNN affiliate WCNC reported.
    The two -- who hold high religious positions in the Muslim community -- were headed to North Carolina for a conference on prejudice against Muslims, or Islamaphobia. The meeting is sponsored by the North American Imams Federation.
    Rahman, who is a professor at the University of Memphis, told the affiliate that the incident reminded him of the prejudice Rosa Parks faced during the civil rights movement.
    "That history I found today in that plane, and it shouldn't happen with any other person," he said.
    Atlantic Southeast Airlines, which operated the flight, said the incident is under investigation, and apologized "for any inconvenience that this may have caused."

    Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the civil rights group Council on American-Islamic Relations, told CNN the two men contacted his office and said they were told that passengers were uncomfortable with them on the flight.
    "They went through security, even went through secondary security, and got on the plane, were taxiing out," he said.
    But then, they were taxied back, Hooper said.
    "TSA came on and pulled them off and said the pilot was refusing to fly with them because passengers were uncomfortable with them," Hooper said, referring to the Transportation Security Administration.
    Hooper said officials re-screened them and found they were no threat.
    While officials tried to get the men back on the plane, "the pilot absolutely refused and ultimately took off," Hooper said.
    The airlines did not say why the two men were taken off the flight, but said they were given the opportunity to fly on a different flight.
    "Atlantic Southeast Airlines flight 5452 from Memphis to Charlotte returned to the gate to allow for additional screening of a passenger and the passenger's companion," the statement said. "We take security and safety very seriously, and the event is currently under investigation."

    Maoni yangu; NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS, THE IMAMS OWE APOLOGY FROM THE PILOT AND THE AIRLINE FOR SUCH HUMILIATION

    Wao wawili hawakufurahishwa na kitendo cha kuondolewa kwenye ndege, lakini pia abiria waliokuwa wengi zaidi ndani ya ndege hawakufurahishwa na uwepo wa hao muslims mule! Labda ingepigwa kura!

    Maoni yangu I personally blame both sides... The majority American people for being so ignorant of the true reasons and facts of the US government attacks in issues which they intervene using force and attack with pure lack of diplomacy and the integrity they so like to boast about. For the majority American citizens any Arab is a terrorist or is linked... It is worse when that Muslim embraces his/her culture of dressing code.

    For the Imams; there going to the conference on "prejudice against Muslims, or Islamaphobia" means they do know the full/real situation between an ongoing never ending battle between the US government plus its citizens and the Arab world. Factors such as the terrorist's attack of 9/11 is still raw in their minds making it worse since the media has been scavenging on the attack of Bin Laden. They as leaders would have to compromise a bit, Bin Laden is an Arab who has been showed to the Media for almost a week; you go for a flight and find the same image as the way Osama looks... It is obvious the ignorant majority would be scared of them. they at least had to put an effort of wearing clothes which everybody wears to reduce attention on them.

    Nakubaliana nawe kwenye kipengele hiki na si cha kwanza, walitakiwa watumie hekima. Wangeweza kuvaa kawaida wakifika wakabadili na kuvaa watakavyo. Siwalaumu Wamarekani kwani hii ni tabia ya nchi nyingi, kwa mfano kuna Watanzania kibao ambao wamewahi kukataliwa kuingia Urusi kwa kuonekana kuwa ni tishio kwa usalama, ukifuatilia utakuta ni kwa ajili ya jinsi walivyovaa tu. Kwa hiyo hekima inatakiwa unaposhirikiana na wenzio.

    Katika risk management hiyo inaitwa "risk mitigation". Yaani unakidhibiti kihatarishi kabla hakijaleta madhara. Big up pilot

    Safiiiiii sana!
    Waislamu wanavuna walichokipanda duniani kote, ni dini ya chuki, hasira, visasi, ubaguzi, na hawana ubinadamu, sasa dunia imewastukia...
    Angalia wakristo wanavyoonewa Zanzibar, Saud Arabia, Sudan, Misri, Malaysia.
    Juzi juzi tu Mahakama kuu ya Malaysia ilipisha sheria kuwa sheria zao hizimtambui mkristo, kwa hiyo hawezi kushinda kesi yoyote mtu anaekiri kuwa mkristo, kwa katiba yao ni sawa na mnyama... sasa wanataka nini?

    Zanzibar tu, jaribu kwenda polisi au taasisi yoyote, au teremka airport, ukiwa na jina kama John, George au Samuel basi utajuta kutaja jina lako, hebu fanyeni jaribio.
    lakini idiologia yao imefeli duniani kote, ndio sababu hata wachezaji wetu hawachukuliwi nje, kina Abdulla, Mohamed, nk, majina hayo hayatakiwi tena kwenye nchi zilizoendelea...
    Marekani yao yaani Saud Arabia mpaka leo mwanamke hapigi kura wala haruhusiwi kuendesha gari ni haram, wako nyuma sana hawa wafuga kondoo wa jangwani, wawashukuru wakristo kununua mafuta yao, Bush alikataa kununua mafuta yao wakaja chini sana...
