The Muslim father, Mohammad Tariq Mahmood said he and his children were not allowed on board but two of his nieces were permitted to go through border control. He lamented that a Facebook page linked to his home address and his brother may have been the reason they were barred.

He further stressed that “They are bringing out this thing that my brother was stopped at Tel Aviv but bitterly complained that if it was the case, it should have been flagged up when we filled out our ESTAs - which was seven or eight weeks ago. He said he was busy touring a few countries nine or 10 years ago and decided to visit the Grand Mosque.

Mr Mahmood said there had also been talk of a Facebook page which allegedly contained extremist material accredited to a person called “Hamza Hussain,” the same first name as his 18-year-old son Hamza Mahmood.

The Facebook page was also 'linked' to Mr Mahmood’s home address. It is not my son’s Facebook page he complained. It has a similar name, but not the same as my son’s. The page is also linked to our home address and that could be coincidence. I don’t know why it is linked there.

A spokesman for Norwegian Air said last night: “We can confirm that a group of passengers were denied the right to board a flight from London Gatwick to Los Angeles on Tuesday at the request of the US Department of Homeland Security .

Moreover, Norwegian fully complies with requests from the border controls of each country we serve and Religion, faith, or spiritual beliefs of a traveler not determining factors about admissibility into the U.S.
