After continuous complaints from Muslim groups the state of Illinois is reportedly now telling DMV workers that anyone wearing a religious head covering does NOT have to take it off for a driver’s license or photo ID. How in the hell can we tell who it is? This is ridiculous!
Fusion news reports the Illinois Secretary of State’s office will begin mailing fliers reminding Department of Motor Vehicle employees that “articles of faith” are legally permissible. The Chicago chapter of designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) complained that Muslim women also were being asked to remove head coverings for photos.

The flyer reads:
The Secretary of State’s office recognizes and respects the increasing diversity of religions practiced by Illinois residents. Members of many religions, such as Islam and Sikhism, wear religious head coverings, also known as articles of faith. While hats or head coverings are generally prohibited from being worn in photographs used on Illinois driver’s licenses and identification cards, customers may be photographed while wearing established religious head coverings. Photographs increase public safety. Examples of acceptable religious head coverings can be found in this flier.
Followers of the Islamic faith are called Muslims. Some Muslim women cover their head, based on religious belief and the Islamic injunction to dress modestly. They may wear a full-head covering or hijab, or a simple scarf over their hair. Some Muslim men wear a skullcap or kufi based on religious tradition.
It’s illegal to ask people to remove their head covering and the fliers will be a reminder for state employees to respect religious diversity, a spokesperson for Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White tells Fusion. (H/T Mad World News)
Frighteningly, Muslims became the state’s fastest growing and third-largest group in 2012, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Say CHEESE! This is totally insane. This is America under the Obama regime…
