Being a Muslim, it’s really hard to be in an airport of western countries because the random security checks are norms for Muslims or even brown people. I’m not an overtly religious person but I feel bad for fellow Muslims who get marginalized in airports and made fun of if they don’t speak proper English at airport whereas Chinese don’t get this kind of treatment

I can't walk through an airport anywhere in Europe without getting stopped at least once

You just have to get on with it, security is super tight now

Never been stopped once. Half the time they ask me to fly the plane.

In the UK it’s not true. Unless you have a metal on you so the body scanner beeps, you won’t be checked.

Because of who the perpetrators of many recent terrorist attack have been and let's not forget ISIS
I have to agree - the stats are definitely against you so you can see the logic. That being said, I always notice loads of white people being stopped and scanned too including myself!

Why doesn’t it happen in Fubai? It’s one of the safest cities in the world cause they have detectors at the doors rather than all the hassle after that

Perks of being brown. We get a nice check over before the flight to make sure we're healthy:rofl:

I get stopped and I am not 'brown', or muslim. I don't really think there is any way for security to tell that you are muslim as no one 'looks' muslim (unless if you wear religious clothing).

This doesn't really have anything to do with your religion mate.

Are you suggesting theres no good reason for them to check?
Are you suggesting other people are not checked?
