Muslim chaplain says she faced discrimination aboard United Airlines flight



A chaplain from Chicago’s Northwestern University claims she faced anti-Muslim discrimination aboard a United Airlines flight on Friday, while en route from Chicago to Washington, D.C.

Tahera Ahmad said a United flight attendant refused to give her an unopened can of Diet Coke because she said it could be used “as a weapon.” When she said she was being discriminated against, another passenger on the plane hurled angry, anti-Muslim comments at her, according to Ahmad.

Others have called for a boycott of United after Ahmad’s Facebook post (see below) recounting her experience went viral.
