To sum it up.... he refused to eat something given to him by a non-muslim?


HUH, how stupid is that? Is there any restictions in the holy koran where it says it needs to be served by a muslim?

This guy deserves a kick on his back side. Tomorrow, he will decide that he will fly only Muslim passengers.


An airplane might disappoint any pilot but it'll never surprise a good one.

I keep wondering where this mass fundamentalism comes from in Pakistan.

Did he join a Flying Madrassa or something?

Islam is all about tolerance, and it is obvious a lack of education in poor countries only fuels fundamentalist thought.

Anything like this happens in an airline that I would trust (e.g. Lufthansa or KLM, to name just two), would mean that the captain would lose his job.
I as a passenger do not have any interest whatsoever to entrust my life to a person who obviously is not a teamplayer and who puts his own (idiotic) opinions over everything else around him.

If PIA further tolerates this person as a memeber of it´s flying staff, then I will definitely NOT fly with them - EVER.

Kind regards,

From the translation I read on the other forum, it appears that the pilot did not want to be served by a non-Muslim F/A. That's OK. However, the purser moved the F/A to work elsewhere. That's not OK. If a Muslim pilot wants to be served exclusively by Muslims, let him eat and drink only when a Muslim happens to be assigned the duty of serving the pilots. If a pilot does not like that, he/she can always leave PIA. The presence of such pilots is hardly good for crew morale.

That's the truth. Islam isn't fundamentally different than many other religons. And like many other religons it has been corrupted by it's leaders through the use of ignorance and 'blind faith'.



I don't care what you think of my opinion. It's my opinion, so have a nice day :)

No reason to make a big deal out of it.

No, there's no such thing written.
In one of the messages on the PIA board a muslim notes that the Prophet Mohammed himself ate at non-Muslim households.

Likewise there's also no such thing written that says that muslim women must be veiled. And there's no such thing that says that muslim women cannot work or go to school (the Prophet Mohammed's first wife and the one he really loved exclusively for 25 years until her death) was a very successful businesswomen (which was very unusual at the time).

Someone tell these fundamentalists that if you look at the Koran _in the context of life in 6th century Arabia_ it actually promotes a somewhat liberal doctrine.


Actually that PIA forum website is pretty funny. One user: Don't jump to conclusions, what if the guy was just scratching his balls or picking his nose?

However civil airliners pilots are highly educated people, and those who fly international long-haul are supposed to be the best and most experienced of them. Not much to do with ignorance here.

Out of curiosity, what's PIA status regarding the State of Pakistan -this could influence an official religion at PIA, if any-; what is exactly the status of Islam for the State of Pakistan, is it the official religion?

Forget all that. Are all pilots there Muslim?

If they aren't, what kind of CRM is this guy going to have on a dark stormy night when a non-muslin FO, or any crew member for that matter has valid, crucial input to make in the safe operation/conclusion of the flight?

Political/Religious tolerance aside. This man is the commander of the aircraft. Such short sighted actions could have me wonder what this mans state of mind is when conducting a flight. When does it stop, what are his boundaries in terms of accepting advise/assistance from someone not belonging to his belief system.

This harkens back to a failed takeoff clearance in Tenerife when a timid FO dared to question "THE CAPTAIN". He did it once, likely with fear of reprisal. His failure to do it a second time and the CRM of the time caused the loss of hundreds of lives.

We can only hope this Captain is never in such a situation.

And if he is, isn't such a moron.

I don't understand the outrage... many of the same people here would have a plane turned around and a passenger arrested if that passenger so much as rolls their eyes at the crew... and defending such an option as the right of the flight commander.

The captain is the supreme authority aboard the aircraft he commands. Though he did something that was in poor taste, at no time was the aircraft, crew, or passengers in danger. Unless the PIA (or relevent nations) have rules against his conduct, he was within his rights. Plain and simple.

Wow, this man is a genius.... Sure makes Islam look GREAT. Someone should give that captain a medal of honor, b/c we all know other Islamic peoples think that way, and he's just standing up for what's yours!  bigthumbsup 

I hope this moron's aviation career is finished. Pakistan is a progressive Islamic nation....so there's no doubt that this situation will be properly dealt.  Smile

i agree. i think the majority of you all are overly fascinated when airline pilots get themselves involved in real life, personal issues. maybe this is due to the fact that most of the people's flying experiences on this thread are limited to home PC flight simulators and private pilot activity - and to make a real life airline pilot ,who flies real life airliners, look human and point out his human shortcomings is just soooooo much fun for y'all. lets get back to talking about things like what triple 7's are being broken up early, or, "what registration number is the airplane in this picture?" ill probably get crucified for saying this, but i don't care anymore.
