It seems that we are currently seeing more and more cases of religious discrimination.  One such case we covered before was a woman that was banned from wearing a cross on flights [Link].  Now a different airline is banning a woman from carrying a Bible with her on a flight to Saudi Arabia.  The featured article follows below:

A BRITISH airline has banned its crew from taking the Bible into Saudi Arabia for fear of upsetting Muslims.BMI bosses have told staff they must take the Koran instead.

One middle-aged stewardess is to sue BMI for religious discrimination at an industrial tribunal due to take place in the New Year.

In the meantime she will be excluded from BMI flights to Saudi Arabia.

A BMI source said: “Foreign Office advice is that non-Islamic religious material is not permitted in Saudi.”

But another BMI worker said: “We understand our embassy has confirmed that the Saudis never enforce this rule.

“The stewardess is deeply religious and takes her Bible everywhere she travels.

“The bottom line is BMI don’t want to jeopardise the Saudi route, which is worth millions to them.”

The ban follows BA’s climbdown on a rule prohibiting staff wearing crosses — which triggered a mass protest.
