Removing the hijab for mug shots is required for effective law enforcement, but that’s the point, is it not?
Anywhere Western law and Islamic law conflict, it is Western law that must give way. Ten tears ago, the Hamas-front group CAIR would never have attempted such a putsch on law enforcement. But after a decade of Western appeasement, submission, and self-flagellation over fictional tales of “islamophobia” in the face of endless jihad attacks and attempts, they’re emboldened.
Lawsuit seeks to prevent NYPD from removing suspects’ hijabs for mug shots
By NY1 News, March 17, 2018:
A lawsuit filed against the NYPD wants the department to stop requiring Muslim women to remove their hijabs for mug shots.
The lawsuit, filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, alleges two Muslim-American women were photographed without their headscarves after arrests related to orders of protection.
It also claims an officer mocked one of the women’s faith.
The lawsuit says the NYPD’s “unnecessary and discriminatory policy” violates the U.S. Constitution.
In a statement, City Law said it would review the complaint, but insisted the NYPD’s practice “carefully balances the department’s respect for the customs of all religions with the legitimate law enforcement need to take arrest photos.”
