Passenger’s fury as airport security staff ask him to state his faith – Daily Record

leave a comment »

BOSSES at Edinburgh Airport have been slammed for asking passengers to reveal their religion during security checks.Traveller Iain McGill told how he was asked to state his faith after being picked at random for a full body scan.Airport chiefs say the question is voluntary and is designed to monitor the types of people being chosen for the scans.But Iain says he was never told he didn’t have to answer, and a top expert in flight security was astonished by the airport’s approach.Philip Baum, editor-in-chief of Aviation Security International, said: “I am totally against racial profiling of any sort as it has never successfully identified a threat.“What happens if a passenger says they are Buddhist or Muslim or Christian? Would they all be treated differently to each other?
