Jassat says issues around their visas were used as a pretext to take them into custody and have them deported.

He says they are trying to make contact with the group of nine.

This gives us an opportunity once again, to revisit if there is a degree of Islamophobia... is it part of the global phenomenon where Muslim people are being profiled.
