Muslim man sues Virgin Atlantic for being walked out of flight for saying 9/11

Mohammad Khan, from north London, was going from London Heathrow to Atlanta, Georgia, when he was supposedly blamed by the Virgin Atlantic staff for articulating ‘exceedingly improper’ remarks.

Thus he was walked out of the flight on grounds of saying 9/11, in what Khan claims was a “guiltless” say. Khan is suing the aircraft for racially and religiously profiling him for being a Muslim.

As per The Independent, Khan is a Middlesex University graduate, who was making a trip to the US for a meeting for a business temporary position in Medellin, Colombia. He affirmed that the Virgin Atlantic staff profiled him over an innocuous discussion he had with a staff part, a flight attendant and another traveler, which transformed into an enormous eruption by the group staff.

The 26-year-old said that another traveler who he had never met was griping about the long length of airplane terminal security lines as the plane maneuvered on the runway. He advised in a meeting to a nearby paper, “I absolutely guiltlessly said ‘there’s been greater security since 9/11’, at that point asked the attendant I wager your employment has changed since 9/11 , yet she looked paralyzed.”

Khan was opened by the police after the plane was pivoted and maneuvered back towards the terminal.

“I was racially and religiously profiled. It was an entire overcompensation to totally blameless and innocuous remarks. I know this would not have happened on the off chance that I was a white man in his sixties who had done likewise.”

“It completely demolished my excursion and I felt embarrassed. I was made to feel like a criminal,” said Khan.

He said he was not formally met by police, who acknowledged there had been a “misconception”.

The Virgin Atlantic would not permit him back in the flight, a year ago on January 8. He was denied a discount on his 560 British Pound ticket and he was compelled to pay additional 817 British Pounds on flights with another aircraft.

Khan has so far been engaging for pay from the aircrafts and his specialists as of late presented a last case for 5,000 British Pounds alongside the lawful expenses. He said he would sue in the district court if the aircraft did not take care of the demand.

A representative from the Virgin Atlantic said that Khan was escorted out and expelled from the flight after “numerous clients and team announced hearing profoundly unseemly remarks concerning security”.

He included: “This is not a choice we trifle with and albeit such security occasions are uncommon, we have an obligation to report them to the significant experts to guarantee the wellbeing and security of our airplane, clients and group.”

“Our group has been in general contact with Mr Khan and his attorneys, and we have offered to discount his flights.”
