The video below shows a Muslim woman being forced to leave a store in Gary, Indiana by the manager, who feared she might be using her Niqab to rob the place.
GOP The Daily Dose reported that Sarah Zawjahtul AbdAllah Salaam was shopping at a Family Dollar Store while wearing an Islamic head scarf covering her mouth and nose when she was told to leave the store.
“You have to understand, too, that this is a high-crime area where we get robbed a lot,” the manager told her. “You need to remove that from your face or remove yourself from the store. Remove that from your face or remove yourself from the store, please. I’m the manager, and I’m telling you to leave my store. Have a blessed day. My name is Janie, and have a blessed day.”
Salaam whined that her headscarf was a religious garb, but the manager wasn’t having any of it. The Muslim, however, continued to loudly protest.
“This is a country where it’s freedom of religion and it’s freedom of speech,” Salaam says. “I have a right to wear whatever I want to wear. There’s women that come in here with bikini tops on.”
Finally, she surrendered and left the store when the manager threatened to call the police. Do you think this Muslim got what she deserved, or did the manager go too far? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
