LISTEN: Rehab Discusses Hijab Discrimination at Convenience Store

Ahmed Rehab talks to Red Eye Radio’s Marc Germain about a Muslim woman who was denied service at a convenience store because she refused to remove her hijab.

“It was a case of religious discrimination.  It may not have been purposeful, but the end result is the same,” Rehab said.  “Nuns wear headscarves on their hair as well and I don’t think anybody in their right mind would ask her to remove it at a store.”

    Br. Ahmed, mashaALLAH, you are doing a wonderful service to us defending our rights, and speaking honestly and couragously. I personally still can’t beleive the man that said “Muslims cause a problem everywhere they go”…. I can’t beleive we still have such bigots in this country!

    As long as any religious group does not try to convert me or try to establish laws other than through democratic processes or cover their faces so they cannot be easily recognized, then they are welcome. If they take up arms, lie, cheat, or steal, then be GONE!
