29 year old Muslim woman, Lenora Gordon, says she was discriminated against when she was prevented from entering the Atlantic County Civil Court while wearing an Islamic headbag.
NBC Being of the Muslim faith, Gordon says she can’t remove her scarf for religious purposes, and never in front of men. “They actually want me to take my scarf off in front of the whole courtroom, which I can’t do that, it’s against my religion,” Gordon said.
Gordon says she’d like an apology for what she’s calling discrimination. “I would like an apology. For really discriminating from this court building because of my scarf.” (Forget the apology, CAIR lawsuit to follow)
