“Citing the reason for the action, the company known as Advance America said it requires all customers to remove any hoods, hats, sunglasses and other head coverings as part of its safety policy.” But safety must fall by the wayside, you see. Concern for safety is a “fossilized” policy. Advance American needs to come up to “the modern time.”
It might seem absurd for Dawud Walid of Hamas-linked CAIR to say such a thing in defense of a garment connected to a seventh-century dress code, but Dawud Walid is right: given the clueless, capitulated and complicit political and media elites of today, the hijab is the wave of the future.
In a fresh Islamophobic attack, a Muslim woman has been denied service in a Michigan store after she refused to take off her Islamic hijab, according to media reports.
The problem erupted when Nadia Kamal said she was denied service by the clerk at Advance America Cash Advance in the Detroit suburb of Westland on Wednesday.
“The lady she told them just take it off a little bit and put it back,” her husband, Fatah Kamal, said. “She said, ‘I can’t, I’m in a public place I cannot do that.'”
Nadia feels comfortable removing her hijab only in the presence of “very close family,” her husband said.
The Muslim woman reported facing ill treatment when she was denied services and kicked out of the Michigan cash advance store.
“This is really about ignorance, it’s really about fossilized policies and people being stubborn and not coming up to the modern time,” Dawud Walid, of the Council on American Islamic Relations, said on Wednesday.
Walid added that women are permitted to wear headscarves to do everything from go to the bank to take driver’s license photos.
