Muslim group calls for probe of passenger's removal from Charlotte flight
by Siddharth Vodnala
A prominent Muslim organization has called for an investigation of a Muslim man's removal from a Charlotte flight last year after he was allegedly singled out for monitoring by a flight attendant.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said Mohamed Ahmed Radwan was removed from the flight because of his "identifiably Arabic and Muslim name."
According to federal law, airlines are prohibited from discriminating against passengers based on religion, ancestry and national origin, among other criteria.
