In the USA, Nick George, a white non-Muslim American, was arrested and detained in Philadelphia airport because the TSA search found something "very suspicious" with him in his travel bags.

What is it? a bomb? a weapon? attack instructions? No, nothing like that. It was simply because he was carrying... flash cards to learn the Arabic language!! Here is the conversation:

TSA Officer: "Do you know who did 9/11?" 
Taken totally aback, Nick answered: "Osama Bin Laden, I guess." 
TSA Officer: "And what language did he speak?"
Nick: "Arabic?!" 
TSA Officer: "So do you see why these cards are suspicious?!!"

After that he was handcuffed from the back, dragged outside the airport in front of everyone, and then locked in a police cell! He was later released, and most people would be happy to simply walk out of this unharmed, however, he wanted to take an extra step to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone again, so what did he do?

He sued them! So they offered him a $25,000 compensation outside of court. But instead of agreeing, he demanded that all airport and police officers must go through a sensitivity training and not handcuff or treat anyone in the same way without clear evidence for suspicion. They agreed and signed the new guidelines today. What an honorable person! May the almighty help him learn the language of Quran and find guidance for being a decent person!
