So you know how the airport security people were saying the scans would be immediately deleted....guess what.


They were stored, and retrieved under the freedom of information act (or whatevah), aaaaaand published on the net!

The pictures published in this newslink aren't clear (alhumdulillah), the ones I saw this morning in the paper, made me turnover quick!!! Shocked

Walaikum Asalam,

Thank you Fowzia sis for sharing and like you stated this isn't exactly a surprise. The quality of the pictures in the article shown are very bad but I have seen sharper images by newer models that you can make out pretty much everything, astaghfirullah.

I truly hope this starts a reaction to where people decide to stand up for their rights and privacy. One of my classmates told me the government is talking about passing a law to where they can keep track of any social networking sites and use that information to prosecute people...I guess the patriot act wasn't enough. May Allah keep us all safe inshAllah.

Assalamu Alaikum

Salams,

On my last trip to Saudi around 10 years back, my sex organs very thoroughly 'hand-scanned' by the security officer there. I would leave the other details aside !!

These images making it to internet and print media is a huge security breach in and of itself though. But when it comes to x-ray body scanners (and IMO there is no real nudity in the original scan unless you process it further with a software), I think they are a better choice than having someone press your private parts...

The pictures which were published in the papers were actually very clear.

You can clearly see what the person looks like naked.

I've been physically searched before at airports. These pictures are way more invasive.

I'd not go thro these scanners.


I hope the people who's pictures have been published sue for invasion of privacy & personal distress and whatever else they can think of, I hope they get billions out of this.

As-salaamu alaykum,

This is a note especially for those sisters who are nervous about traveling through airports with the new scanners.
I had to travel from JFK to Zurich to Qatar this November, and the minute the security saw me (hijaabed), the female ones took me aside to a private room, where they did a regular scan/manual check. Relatively quick, professional and respectful. It was no worse than before the scanners, which I'm glad I didn't have to go through it at all. It was almost like they *knew* I would refuse it.

That may just be my experience, but it was at more than one airport.
