Paki-Muslim man jailed for shouting “Allahu Akbar” and “boom” on Emirates Airlines flight out of Dubai

 A Pakistani-origin man was jailed for 10 weeks for triggering panic and frightening passengers on a UK-bound flight by shouting “Allahhu Akbar” and “boom.” Shehraz Sarwar caused alarm with his behaviour during turbulence on-board an Emirates Boeing 777 from Dubai to Birmingham.

Emirates-Dubai-Cebu-Flight Times of India  (h/t Siddharth) “There was terrible turbulence during the flight and some passengers were very frightened. The defendant started chanting Allahhu Akbar over and over again and very loudly. People were getting very distressed with his behaviour. When the plane finally landed, he shouted ‘boom’,” prosecutor Alex Warren told Birmingham Crown Court.

“It left some passengers in tears while one man angrily confronted the defendant before being told to sit down by cabin staff. Police were then called and the defendant was arrested,” he said. The British judge told Sarwar that over and above the jail term he would be placed on licence with a 12-month supervision order when released.
