Aghnia Adzkia is a muslim Indonesian citizen who was on her way to London, through Rome, when she reported that she was being harassed at the airport. The teen decided to live stream herself throwing a fit because she felt that laws were ‘discriminatory’.
The teen created a Facebook post and a video, declaring that the airport had no right to ask her to remove her hijab in order to move past security. In fact, the airport does have such laws, and attendants not only presented the girl with paperwork, but offered her a private room with a female security agent so that Adzkia could get on her flight.
Adzkia’s attempt to blast the airport over live steam was a total failure. The video she captured featured an amazing security agent that wasn’t about to let the hijab-clad girl’s entitlement get to her.
Not only that, but the airline itself had a stunning response for the girl who tried to throw a fit in order to get past security:
The statement reads:
“What happened to Ms Aghnia Adzkia solely and exclusively concerns compliance with safety procedures. The passenger, when passing the security gates, set off an alarm in the head area and it was therefore necessary to investigate the case, which could not be overlooked.
For this reason, our staff asked her to go through to a private room, where they could check her head and headdress, as is strictly required by European and national laws, the purpose of which is to ensure safety and civil cohabitation.
When Ms Aghnia refused to remove her headdress, requesting to read the legislation, she was shown the National Security Programme, which was promptly translated into English by our staff. Further to her continued refusal, our staff were forced to move the passenger away from the control area.
Ms Aghnia subsequently returned to that area (and, on that occasion, filmed the video) and then left Ciampino airport. She later departed from Fiumicino airport on another flight, passing through security without any issues, this time removing her headdress.
We are truly sorry for the fact that the young passenger had a negative experience whilst travelling via Ciampino airport. At the same time, however, we reiterate that what happened is completely unrelated to any form of discrimination.
The passenger simply did not wish to comply with basic security requirements, which are implemented with due care and sensitivity by our staff, in the interests of safety for all passengers, including Ms Aghnia Adzkia.”
