As a result, Anila Daulatzai of Baltimore was taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, disturbing the peace, obstructing and hindering a police officer and resisting arrest, said Lt. Kevin Ayd of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.
LA Times (h/t Henry P) Daulatzai claimed to have a life threatening allergy to dogs but was unable to provide the medical certificate necessary to continue with the flight. As most BNI readers know, Muslims hate dogs and consider them filthy. Under Islam, owning a dog, other than a working dog, is considered a sin. Muslims are known for poisoning their neighbors dogs in non-Muslim countries.
Anila Daulatzai often wears an Islamic hijab, and in 2014-15 was Visiting Assistant Professor of Women’s Studies and Islamic Studies at Harvard Divinity School.
The incident, which was captured in jumpy cellphone video, occurred at Baltimore-Washington International Airport after a passenger asked that two dogs be removed from the aircraft, according to a witness. Instead, the flight crew asked the woman to leave, and she refused.
Daulatzai was transported to the Anne Arundel County District Court. She had been removed from the plane at the request of its captain. A bystander video shows two officers struggling to get Daulatzai from her seat and down the aisle.
