CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Two Muslim men at the Memphis Airport say they were kicked off of a flight at that airport before it took off for Charlotte.
The pair talked to WBTV Friday and we learned that the TSA cleared them to fly. The two passengers went to gate, they got on an airplane, everything was OK.
But here's where things change: the plane left the gate, before getting to the runway, the pilot said "we need to go back to gate."
That's where things started to change for Masudir Rahman, after being ordered off by a Delta Supervisor.
"He said 'Mr. Rahman, sorry the pilot is not allowing you to enter the plane.' I said ‘For what reason, TSA had a problem and we were cleared, we don't have anything and we are respected people in our community'."
But, according to Rahman, the pilot said, "I'm not going to take to you."
