Kameelah Rasheed, a Muslim American woman, was pulled off a flight bound for Istanbul out of the Newark Liberty International Airport, forcing her to endure a two-and-a-half-hour ordeal that involved being interrogated by customs officials and an FBI agent. Officials reportedly confiscated her passport and phone, and accused her of purchasing a one-way ticket — even after when she offered evidence of return tickets. Rasheed, who is an artist, Stanford University graduate, and Fulbright scholar, said had to endure the questioning “because I’m Muslim,” adding it was “an attempt to humiliate and ostracize me.” She noted that she was was the only person out of 200 asked to leave the flight, and was “the only visibly Muslim person” because she wore a headscarf.
