Do Muslim's experience racial profiling at the airport? A tweet by Amanullah De Sondy has gained attention online -“Flying whilst Muslim is back! Landed at Dublin only to be profiled asking for a lot more information from me than a line of white travellers. A condescending, louder, more pronounced questioning as if to ask if I spoke English. I did question why me?but of course it’s “random”! Andrea chats to Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri, Islamic Theologian. Chair of Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council.
