Muslim scholars taken off flight to conference

Two Muslim scholars headed to an American Fears of Islam conference were pulled from a flight on Friday, and were later told that the pilot had refused to fly with them aboard.

The men, Masudur Rahman, a professor of Arabic at the University of Memphis, and Mohamed Zaghloul, Imam at the Islamic Association of Greater Memphis, were reportedly asked to deplane Atlantic Southeast Airlines flight 5452 from Memphis to Charlotte. They were subjected to additional security checks after the plane had pushed back from the gate.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
