Muslim British family banned from entering Disneyland, father Blames facebook page
The father of a British Muslim family has been banned from entering Disney land with his family, he blames facebook page for being banned from a trip to Disneyland to be behind them being banned from a dream trip to Disneyland .
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.
