Muslim Woman Suing Judge for Banning Headscarf

hijab suit

I’m not crazy about the fact that this case is being handled by our friends at CAIR, but the attorney being interviewed does mention that forcing a Muslim woman to remove her hijab is exactly like making an Orthodox Jew take off his yarmulke.

Discuss.

  1. Why was this piece of scum ever allowed into the U.S. Islamist scum need to be told that their filthy perverted Islamist sect is required to fit in with the host country….not the host country fitting in with their vile sub human behaviour patterns…..

  2. A scarf is not an issue, its the sheet that covers the face.

  3. To maintain our rights, we must be concerned with rights universally.

  4. I am Zionist. But outside of that Muslims get trashed just like Jews often. She should be left to cover her head and practice “Muslim frum” if she chooses. If a veil is used there needs to be a modest way to be able to positively identify a defendant, and I’m sure there are more than one. Is the comparison really between a hijab (etc.) and a kippah? A fair number of Jewish women use headcoverings of various types.

  5. I’m gonna agree on this however there is a distinct difference between covering one’s head and covering one’s face…

  6. Violet Helms says:

    The hijab should not be an issue. It is the total face covering that is. The judge should be informed, or else the public should be.

  7. Ita Benjamin says:

    From the video, it’s unclear whether the woman told the judge her scarf was a religious head covering. He keeps calling it a hat, she calls it a scarf. The reporter says her husband “intervenes” but doesn’t say how and his intervention isn’t clear. So I’ll reserve comment on this particular case. In general, I agree with the lawyer.

  8. Hijabs are OK not burkas

  9. Ronnie Pleet says:

    Face coverings are the issue

  10. As long as their faces aren’t covered, I don’t see what the problem is.

  11. Robin Birdfish says:

    Not sure how a judge in this day and age would not know a Muslim woman's head scarf is not a religious covering, but certainly, this is valid. I know that in the religious community a Jewish woman who was told to remove her head covering would be just as upset, as these are for modesty which is very important for the religious women in both communities.
