Good News: Oklahoma Anti-Hijab Bill Dismissed
(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, 4/7/09) – The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) today commended state senators for dismissing a controversial bill (HB 1645) that would have prohibited Islamic head scarves, or hijabs, on driver’s licenses photographs and photo IDs.

The State Senate Sub-Committee on Transportation dropped the bill last week after recognizing it did not have the backing of constituents who believed it violated First Amendment rights. The Senate Judiciary Committee also dropped the bill after realizing that the Department of Public Safety currently has a policy that allows for religious exemptions on driver’s licenses photographs. Federal and military IDs also allow a religious exemption.

“We thank Oklahoma lawmakers for their leadership and courage in standing up for religious pluralism and the First Amendment. We appreciate their recognition of the contributions that all faiths make to the great state of Oklahoma and we look forward to continuing to work together for all Oklahomans,” said CAIR-OK Executive Director Razi Hashmi. He added that some 600 letters opposing the draft legislation were sent to lawmakers by Oklahomans of all faiths.
Hashmi said many people believe the bill was introduced in reaction to CAIR-OK’ssuccessful resolution of a dispute over a Muslim woman’s right to wear hijab in her driver’s license photo.
