Muslim concern at airport stop and search


Muslims have expressed concern about the use of ‘stop and search’ procedures at Glasgow Airport, the BBC reports. The Scottish-Islamic Foundation has said that some of its members were concerned about the interviews they faced and the issue was discussed last night during a question and answer event at a Glasgow mosque.

The event will feature a panel including Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill, representatives from Strathclyde Police and the force's Muslim Association. Allan Burnett. Head of counter-terrorism for the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland, Alan Miller from the Scottish Human Rights Commission and Bashir Maan, president of Glasgow Central Mosque, will also be there.

Two years ago Mr Maan said Muslim business travellers were boycotting Glasgow Airport over heavy-handed and humiliating searches. This was before security at the airport was tightened after the failed car bomb attack on the terminal building last summer.
