Sohail Ashraf and Khurram Zeb, the two innocent Asian students marched off a jet at gunpoint because other passengers feared they were terrorists, have given an interview to the Mirror. They are remarkably restrained in their response.
Sohail is quoted as saying: “These are nervous times and I can understand why people are so panicked. All I would say is, ‘Don’t be paranoid. Don’t judge every book by its cover’. We might be Asian, but we’re two ordinary lads who wanted a bit of fun. Just because we’re Muslim, does not mean we are suicide bombers.”
