"Flying While Muslim" is an actual term that was born following countless Islamophobic incidents that have occurred in airports and airplanes in recent years. Muslims getting kicked off airplanes for speaking Arabic is just one example.
Airliners are not the only ones at fault. Hate speech has made its way to passengers, some of whom have whispered vile phrases including "kill yourself" to Muslims during flights.
The rise of Islamophobia has unconsciously led Muslims to run a mental checklist as a precautionary measure to avoid getting in trouble while flying.
Muslims have been documenting the thought process experienced while boarding a flight under the hashtag #FlyingWhileMuslim.
The reality is quite disturbing.
