New York City Reaches $180,000 Settlement with Three Muslim Women over Hijab Lawsuit

New York City has reached a $180,000 settlement with three Muslim women after they sued the NYPD for forcing them to remove their hijabs for mugshots.

The lawsuits, which sought to change the NYPD’s policy on Muslim women refusing to wear their head coverings in mugshot photos, were settled in Brooklyn federal court Monday, the New York Daily News reported.

Each woman received a $60,000 settlement.

The cases, dating back to 2012, began when a Brooklyn teen only known as “G.E.” was arrested for getting into a fight with two girls.

When NYPD officers brought her to the 62nd precinct, they instructed her to remove her headscarf. The teen refused the officers’ orders, and was taken to a private room where a female officer took her photo separate from the men.

After being taken to a Brooklyn jail for booking, officers informed her that they could not accommodate her request because no female officers could take the photo and the camera was in a fixed spot.

The teen claimed that she felt “exposed, violated, and distraught” after a male officer took her mugshot photo of her without her hijab while officers and prisoners watched.

The NYPD issued an order that changed its policy on people who refused to remove their headscarves in March 2015. The resulting policy change required officers to inform people that the NYPD provides the option of taking booking photos in a private room with an officer of the same gender.

In Islam, it is considered sacrilegious to remove the headscarf of a Muslim woman by force. It is typical for only a Muslim woman’s husband or her family members to see her without her headscarf.


Millions Of Americans Now Funding Sharia Law – Are You Buying This Brand?

When I was a kid, we had THE coolest toys. Remember Mouse Trap? Or how about Lite Brite? There were Color Forms, Shrinky Dinks, the whole cavalry fort complete with the parapet on the fort wall! My favorite was my GI Joe. He had some of the most awesome gadgets. The radio had its own carrying case that snapped closed and a microphone, along with dials that really turned! And his canteen and weapons!

I didn’t have any sisters until I was ready to go into the military so I never really paid much attention to Barbie, but now with four daughters, I understand why she is the fave of all the girls. My kids just think of the most outrageous scenarios and *poof*! Barbie transforms and assumes whatever profession that they happen to need for the occasion. She is truly a woman of many faces.

One of her newest faces is not so much about her profession as it is about her religion. I’m not 100%, but I believe there has never been a Christian Barbie offered. You know, wearing a cross/crucifix or rosary beads. I’m also pretty sure that Barbie has never been a nun or worked in a convent. Now, however, Mattel, the maker of Barbie, has decided that its first “religious” Barbie will be Muslim, sporting a hijab and all!

The Blaze:

Mattel has created its first hijab-wearing Barbie — and modeled it after Muslim-American Ibtihaj Muhammad, who won a bronze medal in fencing at the 2016 Olympic Games and was the first American Olympian to wear a hijab during competition.

The Barbie — dressed in a white fencing outfit and holding a sabre — was presented to Muhammad on Monday at the Glamour Women of the Year LIVE Summit in Brooklyn, New York.

The doll — part of the Barbie Shero line that recognizes boundary-breaking women who can inspire the next generation of girls — will be available for purchase in 2018.

“Through playing with Barbie, I was able to imagine and dream about who I could become,” Muhammad said. “I love that my relationship with Barbie has come full circle, and now I have my own doll wearing a hijab that the next generation of girls can use to play out their own dreams.”

Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive added that Muhammad, 31, “has challenged every stereotype — which to me is the definition of a modern American woman. … She will play a tremendous role in ensuring that girls of the future see themselves represented fully and beautifully in our culture.”

In February, Muhammad claimed she was detained by U.S. Customs under Trump’s travel ban.

“I can’t tell you why it happened to me, but I know that I’m Muslim. I have an Arabic name,” she said in a PopSugar interview. “And even though I represent Team USA and I have that Olympic hardware, it doesn’t change how you look and how people perceive you.”

But there was one glaring omission: It later surfaced that her detention occurred in December 2016 — when Barack Obama was in the White House — yet media outlets ran with headlines that it happened because of Trump, the Washington Examiner reported.

Many will no doubt argue that this is not about politics, but they would be wrong. Of course, we all know by now that the hijab, the burqa and the niqab are symbols of oppression that the men in Arab countries use to keep their women from expressing themselves in a way that would be counter to Sharia law. What many on the Left do not acknowledge or are not yet aware is that Sharia law IS religious in its foundation. Just as the Western laws are based in most part on Mosaic Law from Moses.

Sharia law merges both societal and religious laws and they are not separable from the other. This hijab-wearing Barbie will need to do a few things if she wishes to keep her head. She would probably do a little better with a burqa because her pale skin is a dead giveaway that she is not Arab born. She will need to dye her hair…there’s no way that the blonde is going to play well, and she’ll require turning in her driver’s license and any hopes of going to university. There is a silver lining. Girls can always remove the hijab and convert Barbie to Christianity where she’ll be able to be Barbie once again.

Liberal Activist Breaks Sharia Law While Shopping At Muslim Store, Realizes Her 1 Mistake Too Late

We may never know why liberals in the West defend Muslim migrants.

This group is incredibly hostile to outsiders and their beliefs. They persecute and harass non-Muslims around the world. Yet liberals still protect them like innocent victims.

One liberal learned the hard way just how intolerant Muslims can be to outsiders.

Debatt, Slöjan, Religion, Soheila Fors

From Mad World News:

To show her support for the local Somali Muslims, a liberal feminist walked into a migrant-run store…

However, as soon as she picked up an item for purchase, she was met with the brutal consequences of her decision, courtesy of the store owner himself…

As soon as she made it known that she wanted to buy the dress, the Somali Muslim shop owner confronted her, refusing her service because she is a non-Muslim woman who refuses to wear a hijab…

Fors stated that she was forced to leave the store, angry that she had been discriminated against in her own country, according to Fria Tider.

She added that she felt like she “had returned to Iran’s religious oppression” and was outraged that the Muslim owner adhered to Sharia law instead of assimilating to Swedish culture…

Fors posted her story to social media but refused to name the store and city because, as she explained, she doesn’t want them to be in trouble with the law.

The male owner of the store refused to serve Fors, simply because she was not wearing a hijab. This kind of hostile, closed-minded attitude would have inspired protests and boycotts—had the store been owned by white Christians.

Yet even though Fors was shocked to be treated this way in her own country, she refused to publicize the store’s name. Why not? She claimed that kind of discrimination was illegal in Sweden. Shouldn’t this store be held accountable for their crimes?

Once again, we see spineless liberals protecting a group that needs no protection. Even when Fors acknowledged the Muslims were intolerant bigots, she doesn’t want to upset them.

Remember when a Christian bakery refused to serve a gay wedding? Yeah, liberals destroyed that family. Yet here we see a Muslim group being openly intolerant, and the liberal still wants to protect them.


Now we know liberals will never learn. We must protect our societies from foreign bigotry and hate, without them.
