It looks like we still have brave people. The pilot cites the 4th ammendment:
Quote
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

I'm not surprised to be honest, I saw pictures of those scans, and it leaves nothing to the imagination.


One would also assume that most countries would vet their flying staff to within an inch of their lives, it's insanity expecting them to go thro the insane security checks each time they fly. Either they're turstworthy or they're not.


I wouldnt go thro those scanners, you can see everything I mean everything. Shocked



Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

I'm surprised because he is willing to ultimately lose his job over this. You can see even the interviewer is suggesting that a naked scan or a full body pat down may make people uncomfortable but he should just suck it up. I think the pilot might have a shot in court if he can demonstrate that these specific types of searches are ineffective and not done with probable cause.

Alhumdillah there are still people out there willing to stand up for their beliefs
even if a job is on the line. Taking a stand over a job is very honorable in my opinion.
That takes guts.

MashaAllah I agree with everyone  - it does take a lot of courage to take a stand. But sometimes you have to even if it means possible negative consequences because there is no backing down on something so humiliating.

The unity of all, perceptible to even bystanders, is the Oneness that inspired it, a sea without shores, subject me to this sea.
