Video of Muslim man praying in the aisle of an airplane causing inconvenience and then attacking the flight attendant has been circulating the internet.
The video shows a Muslim man who chose the airplane’s aisle a place to perform his religious duty despite the fact that he blocked the aisle and caused inconvenience for the flight attendants. Moments after he is done praying, he gets up to punch the flight attendant in the face.
L’hystérie islamique dépasse la terre pour toucher le ciel (probablement un vol Transavia) tout en restant fidèle à ses fondamentaux : barbarie et agressivité
A voir jusqu’au bout. pic.twitter.com/JAdwQ2ifGC

In another video taken later, the man was evacuated by the police but he refused and tried to resist while shouting “Allahu Akbar”. The Transavia Airline flight that was flying from Paris to Tunis was rerouted then and delayed in Nice, France.
Arrestation de l’islamiste qui résiste violemment.
Avion détourné vers Nice. Voyage reporté au lendemain. Voyageurs hébergés par Transavia. J’espère que ça va lui coûter un maximum de prison et d’amende plus dédommagement. Et que sa carte de séjour éventuelle lui sera retirée. pic.twitter.com/RFJnqNBnHP

For Muslim Twitter, a debate was ongoing whether what the man has done was necessary or not as he could have prayed in his seat without all the fuss.
he could be done the “pray” (namaz) at his seat as well. He just made an islamic show.

While no more information of the man or the video’s date were clear, some suggested the incident had happened recently on the French airlines while others claimed it’s old videos resurfacing on the internet. The man is also believed to be Turkish, according to social media usersز
As far as I learned he is Turkish.but he deserved it. I hope he will be fined. You cannot disturbe anyone.Our prophet says if your pray(sala) does not save you to do bed thing then it is not a real pray.
