Ejected Muslim and Sikh Airline Passengers Sue

This is from religionclause.blogspot.com which you can find here:

“The New York Daily News reported yesterday that a federal lawsuit has been filed against American Airlines and two affiliated regional carriers by  four friends– 3 Muslims and a Sikh– who were ejected from a Toronto to New York flight last December because they made the stewardesses and the captain uneasy.  The flyers’ appearance and the fact that two of them upgraded to business class just before boarding aroused suspicions in the crew.  Two of the ejected passengers were Bangladeshi Muslims, one an Arab Muslim and one a Sikh from India.  The lawsuit seeks $9 million in damages, claiming plaintiffs were discriminated against for looking too Muslim.”
