STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF SOUTHWEST AIRLINES PASSENGER ANILA DAULATZAI
Oct 4, 2017

.

October 4, 2017. Anila Daulatzai was violently removed from a Southwest
Airlines flight on Tuesday, September 26 at Thurgood Marshall Airport in
Baltimore, Maryland. She survived sexism, racial profiling, and police
brutality that fateful day. Her mistreatment was particularly distressing
because she is presently pregnant with her first child.

.

Professor Daulatzai's story has gone untold. She discussed her non-life
threatening allergies to dogs with Southwest representatives upon entering
the aircraft, and together they decided that she could manage by sitting
away from the dogs towards the rear of the plane. Southwest allows for
passengers to choose their own seats, and Professor Daulatzai found a seat
comfortably distant from the animals. Contrary to the Southwest statement
and various media reports, Professor Daulatzai never asked for the dogs to
be removed from the plane, did not request an EpiPen, nor did she ever
claim that her allergies were life-threatening.

.

Professor Daulatzai buckled her seat belt, turned on the overhead light,
and started grading student papers. She was then approached by a series of
Southwest representatives, and answered every question asked of her. She
was never asked for medical certification, nor would she have needed to
carry that, because her allergies are not life threatening. Despite trying
to convince the crew that she would be completely fine on the plane, she
was asked by another Southwest representative to leave the plane. Shortly
thereafter the Maryland Transportation Authority Police pulled her from
her seat by her belt loop, dragged her through the aisle exposed with torn
pants, and humiliated her for the world to see in a now viral video. The
Maryland Transportation Authority Police later disparaged her, accused her
of lying about her pregnancy, and made racist remarks about immigrants.
They also handed her a list of criminal charges, which have no merit.

.

Professor Daulatzai suffered physical injuries and mental trauma, required
emergency care at a local hospital, including for her pregnancy, and is
under continuing medical care. Professor Daulatzai has also received hate
mail, including racist messages and threats of further violence. There was
an attempted break in into her home. She has since left her home, fearing
for her safety.

.

Anila Daulatzai, who previously taught at Brown University, Harvard
Divinity School as well as internationally, presently holds a faculty
appointment at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She is a Southwest
frequent flier and is currently travelling to California weekly to take
care of her hospitalized father. Her removal from the flight had nothing
to do with allergies or safety concerns. Professor Daulatzai was profiled,
abused, interrogated, detained, and subjected to false reporting and the
trauma of racist, vitriolic public shaming precisely because she is a
woman, a person of color, and a Muslim. This endangered the physical and
emotional well-being of a pregnant woman, researcher, and teacher.

.

Professor Daulatzai and her family express gratitude to everyone who
suspended judgment about what happened until hearing her account of the
events that unfolded that evening.
