    British Muslim family stopped from boarding flight to US

    LONDON: A British Muslim family heading to Disneyland was barred from boarding a flight to Los Angeles by US authorities at Gatwick airport here, prompting a lawmaker to seek Prime Minister David Cameron's intervention into the matter.

    Mohammad Tariq Mahmood, who was travelling with his brother and nine of their children, said the US officials gave no explanation for refusing to allow them to board the flight.

    "It is because of the attacks on America - they think every Muslim poses a threat," he was quoted as saying by the Guardian.

    Opposition Labour party MP Stella Creasy has written to Cameron urging him to press US authorities on the issue.

    A Downing Street spokesperson said Cameron will investigate the lawmaker's claim and will "respond in due course".

    US department of homeland security officials have so far provided no explanation as to why the country refused to allow the family of 11 to board the plane even though they had been granted travel authorization online ahead of their planned December 15 flight.

    Mahmood said that the airline told them that they would not be refunded the $13,340 cost of their flights.

    They were also forced to return everything they bought at the airport's duty-free shops before being escorted from the airport.

    "I have never been more embarrassed in my life. I work here, I have a business here. But we were alienated," Mahmood told 'The Guardian'.

    Creasy said she is concerned about increasing numbers of British Muslims being stopped from entering the US with no apparent reason.
    Writing in the newspaper, she said she had "hit a brick wall" with getting an explanation from American authorities and so has asked Cameron to intervene.
    She said: "The vacuum created by a refusal to provide any context for these decisions is fuelling resentment and debate.

    "Online and offline discussions reverberate with the growing fear that UK Muslims are being 'trumped' - that widespread condemnation of Donald Trump's call for no Muslim to be allowed into America contrasts with what is going on in practice."
    All British citizens fall under the "Visa waiver" programme, which authorizes travel to the US for up to 90 days without a visa.

    Good step .though it was expected . Hail to Amerika not to compromise it's national security.

    Only sympathy with the family is that they should be given money back for their tickets

    Sounds like a Paki as Tariq is a favorite Punjabi musalman name,after a Arab warlord.

    According to Tariq Fateh majority of the Punjabi musalman named after Arabs rather than native Punjabi's like Bulley Shah.

    While we are debating secularism in India, US is already stopping muslims from travelling to their country.

    The losers who are celebrating this ... wait till you or someone you care about is humiliated in the same manner. Then perhaps you will know that discrimination is always wrong.

    The problem is, when muslims get stopped, it becomes a headline in the world media. When others get stopped, its just normal routine. No need to run that in the newspapers. I hate this mentality of media showing muslims as victims.

    Your sentance is a generalisation..not all muslims are stopped only those with suspicion backgrounds are stopped. In this case only two (it seems ) of the family members are stopped.

    " Meanwhile, US Department of Homeland Security officials confirmed to CBS News on Wednesday that the incident occurred, but disputed allegations that all eleven family member were denied permission to board the flight.

    A DHS source told CBS News that one of the brothers was refused entry into Israel two years ago, and his teenage son's Facebook account has links to terrorist websites. "

    I don't get one thing what authority or legislation has UK got over US.
    Its is American discretion regarding who they will allow to enter in their country. Others don't have any say in this.

    Does this mean Bakistani rape will finally stop?

    After years of doing study on homosexual test, they finally succeeded in producing kids from it.

    The experiment started by Great Prophet (saw) has finally succeeded.

    2 Paki men, 9 kids and no mothers. It does seem like an entire batch of nanhe mujahids being transported by their Paki ustads to the land of white Kaffirs so that they can wage jihad over there.

    Good work by the security agencies!
