England Cricketer Moeen Ali Compared To ISIS After Being Detained At Birmingham Airport
Published: Apr 11, 2016

England cricketer Moeen Ali was detained at Birmingham airport on Saturday for about 40 minutes owing to ‘airport rules and regulations’, while he was on his way to join the rest of the Worcestershire side for the opening game of the 2016 County Championship.

The 28-year-old all rounder said that he never had to face a similar issue while travelling with the rest of the team.

Adil Rashid and Owais Shah, other England cricketers of Asian origin, were quick to stand in solidarity with Ali.

But not everyone was not so considerate.

Some even went on to compare him with ISIS.
