A British couple from London who were on their way to Hawaii to celebrate their honeymoon were instead
thrown into a detention center before being put on a flight back to the UK ‘because the groom is a Muslim’.
Natasha Politakis and her husband Ali Gul spent more than £7,000 on a romantic getaway to enjoy the beginning of their marriage.
Airport authorities stopped the couple for ‘five minutes’ interview but ended up being detained for the whole day.
Their belongings, including mobile phones, were also confiscated were given back to them once they were back on UK soil.
Ms. Politakis believes that the couple was mistreated by the American airport because her partner is a Muslim.
The couple was handcuffed when they tried to question why they were stopped, later both were handcuffed and put on a flight back to the UK.
Ms. Politaksi said: ”I am in utter shock that this has happened. We were on our way to our honeymoon as excited as anything and never expected that we would be deported.”
