Malaysian flag mistaken for ISIS symbol at Kansas lake leads to discrimination suit

A Muslim man from Malaysia has filed a discrimination lawsuit after his celebration of Malaysian independence was reported to the FBI as an ISIS meeting.

The FBI quickly ended its investigation after it determined that what had been described as an American flag desecrated with ISIS symbols was in fact a Malaysian flag.

Munir Zanial, an engineer for Spirit Aerosystems, was reported to the FBI last September after he rented a recreational lake operated by the Spirit Boeing Employees' Association, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan.

Most of the 45 guests at the gathering were Muslim and some female guests wore hijabs.
