(CNN)A simple request for an unopened can of Diet Coke on a United Airlines flight left Tahera Ahmad in tears.

A Muslim chaplain and director of interfaith engagement at Northwestern University, Ahmad, 31, was traveling Friday from Chicago to Washington for a conference promoting dialogue between Israeli and Palestinian youth. She was wearing a headscarf, or hijab.

For hygienic reasons, she asked for an unopened can of soda, she said. The flight attendant told her that she could not give her one but then handed an unopened can of beer to a man seated nearby. Ahmad questioned the flight attendant.

For hygienic reasons?

A man sitting across the aisle turned to her and yelled, "You Muslim, you need to shut the f--- up," she said.

"What?"

The man leaned over, according to Ahmad, and looked her in the eyes.

She said that the man told her: "Yes, you know you would use it as a weapon. So shut the f--- up."

One now wonders whether you or another member of VJ's Islam hate club were traveling on that flight...

Islam is the religion of peace, why would there be a hate club?

I would not want to be the member of any club that would have me as a member.

Put it this way, no matter what her reasoning was, they should've given her the diet coke. #ImNotUsingAAAgain

Perhaps she should just have had a beer.

It is policy to not give un opened cans. I think the whole problem is that she is alleging a man near her got an unopened beer we shall se how this shakes out. She Also Alleges Some Man Near Her Cussed At Her And made region slurs. I am a little Tawana Brawley skeptical off that

PS. I saw her picture and she is hawt so I may give her the benifits of the doubt

The story also left out the fact that pilot walked her to the complaint counter and helped her file .

As for the hygienic reason I can see that
