6 Muslims Who Were Arrested On A Flight Sue Passengers For Reporting Them As Potential Terrorists

The 6 Muslim scholars who were removed from a US Airways flight and arrested after being reported by other passengers as being potential terrorists are now suing those passengers, alleging discrimination. The trouble started when a passenger passed a note to a flight attendant expressing concerns about the Muslim passengers because they’d been spotted saying their normal evening prayers in the terminal.

Now the 6 arrested passengers are suing their accusers. Boy, there was sure a whole lot of nasty racism going on that day. It’s hard to figure out who should sue who, isn’t it? Psst, the airline probably has more money. —MEGHANN MARCO
