‘You are not safe’: Muslim woman claims airport security asked her …

A Muslim woman filmed airport security staff in Rome telling her to remove her hijab and be inspected because she was “not safe”. Aghnia Adzkia was returning to London, where she is a student, after visiting friends in the Italian capital when the row broke out. She said staff initially asked her to remove her hijab at the security gate at Ciampino airport.

When Aghnia, who is from Indonesia, refused she was eventually offered the option of going to a private room with a female security officer to be checked. But she felt she had been racially profiled by security and asked them to explain why the hijab inspection was necessary.

Aghnia filmed part of the argument in which a female security agent can be heard saying: “You are not safe.

“You could hide something in your hair.

“If you don’t take it off, we do not know if there’s something inside, okay ? You are not safe for us.”

Aghnia decided to abandon her flight as she was already late for boarding and re-booked a flight from another of Rome’s airport’s, Leanardo Da Vinci-Fiumicino.

But she was again asked to remove her hijab by security. This time she opted to comply. Posting on social media about her experience, Aghnia said: “I wanted to prove to them that I have nothing to hide and I am not a terrorist.

“In the meantime I saw two nuns wearing headscarves, but they weren’t asked to take them off.

“Is this what you call fair treatment and respect ?

Where are my human rights?”

But an official at the Indonesian Embassy (KBRI) argued that, when in Rome, Aghnia should have complied with the security officers’ wishes.

Airport policies on removing items of religious clothing vary in different countries and airports.

Aghnia claims she was racially profiled as she saw two nuns wearing headscarves walk through security unchecked

In the UK, government advice issued in 2010 states that Some female visitors, particularly those of the Muslim faith, will wear veils or other face coverings for religious reasons.

“They must not be made to uncover their faces or hair in public or in front of a man as this could cause serious offence and distress.

“When required for security or identification purposes, the removal of the veil or face covering must be done in private with only female staff present.

“Following the removal of headwear, the person must be given the opportunity to use a mirror, and to have privacy and time to put it back on.”

Airport security officials who hauled United Airlines passenger off overbooked flight ‘shouldn’t have been on plane’

Airport officials who sparked fury by hauling a United Airlines passenger off an overbooked flight should not have even boarded the plane, a security chief has claimed. Authorities in Chicago are investigating why three officers, now placed on administrative leave, were on the plane before David Dao, 69, was dragged off the flight. The officers, who are unarmed and meant to back up local police, were called by airline employees after the doctor refused to give up his seat for crew that needed to be repositioned for other flights.

The resulting altercation left Dao with a broken nose, concussion and needing reconstructive surgery, according to his lawyers, who have said he is likely to sue.

Jeff Redding, who is in charge of safety and security at the Chicago Department of Aviation, which operates O’Hare International Airport, said airport security are not supposed to respond to such calls.

“If it is a customer service-related incident, then you don’t need to board the plane at all,” Redding told a group of Chicago city council members on Thursday. The official however could not immediately say how his officers were instructed about the use of force.

The agency has yet to comment. Once the officers were on the plane, they bungled the situation, according to United Airlines’ pilots’ union.

The United Master Executive Council on Thursday accused the security officers of actions that were “grossly inappropriate.”

“For reasons unknown to us, instead of trained Chicago Police Department officers being dispatched to the scene, Chicago Department of Aviation personnel responded,” the union said.

The airport security officers, while required to meet minimum police standards and go through academy training, are not in fact police, and cannot carry guns or arrest people.

“We are going to thoroughly review every aspect of our operation,” said Chicago’s aviation chief Ginger Evans.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, responsible for the major airports in the New York area, sent out a new directive Friday noting that their officers would not assist in removing a passenger in an overbooking situation.
