SOUTH CAROLINA prison bans Muslim headbags (hijabs), CAIR Litigation Jihadists contemplating lawsuit

A Muslim female inmate at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Columbia has allegedly been denied the right to wear a hijab, a headbag worn by many Muslim women.


Charleston City Paper  Nadhira Al-Khalili, national legal director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, says that on Dec. 31, corrections officers forced a woman to remove her hijab for a booking photograph and then did not allow her to wear it while she was incarcerated. CAIR sent a letter to the S.C. Department of Corrections early last week requesting that the agency obey the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Person Act, which protects religious practices in prisons.

The hijab is a matter of modesty, and some Muslims believe that the hadiths, or sayings of the prophet Muhammad, require it. “Hijab is just like any other article of clothing,” Al-Khalili says, “so if you asked a woman to take off her shirt, even if other women are taking off their shirts, if she doesn’t feel comfortable removing that particular article of clothing, it’s going to be a very demeaning and demoralizing experience.”

CAIR tried to have this billboard for what they called an 'Islamophobic' movie taken down, but lost.

CAIR also tried to have this South Carolina billboard for what they called an ‘Islamophobic’ movie taken down, but lost.

In other states, laws make specific accommodations for inmates who choose to wear turbans, yarmulkes, and hijabs, and female corrections officers are allowed to take female prisoners into a private room to search their hijabs for contraband.

Al-Khalili, who wears a hijab, says another South Carolina woman contacted her in the fall when she was forced to remove her hijab in a SCDOR facility, but the woman chose not to pursue legal action. In this case, she says CAIR has not yet decided whether to file a lawsuit. “If the Department of Corrections would just contact us, that would certainly save everyone a lot of time and resources, but we haven’t even heard from them yet,” she says. (South Carolina has more important things to worry about like trying to pass anti-sharia legislation)

  1. Muslims women hijabs can be checked by lady security and your other electrical detection equipements are failed ? or what . how do u check your nuns than . isnt that double standard . Do equally for muslim women n nuns than !

  2. I suppose the concept of “IMPRISONMENT” and the loss of freedom that entails doesn’t register with these buffoons.

    When you are imprisoned for a crime, you do NOT have the right to wear whatever you want to wear. You wear what they TELL you to wear; you eat WHEN and WHAT they tell you to eat (or you don’t eat at all); the lights go out when THEY decide to shut them off, and the lights go on when THEY decide to turn them on.

    THEY, in this case, being the prison authorities.

  3. your hate is the reason we cover. this world is sick and twisted and painful. you lust when you see my curves, my hair, my sexy lips. when i cover it, you have no control -no peek-a-boo. leave me alone.

    • You bagheads cover up and still get raped more than any other women in the world. Your children, too. Don’t flatter yourself, most muslim women are butt ugly.

      But you’re right about one thing – we do hate you.

  4. bitch is an inmate. lost her rights. but the american muslim john Walker Lindh won his right to pray with other asslifters. Still don’t see the attraction to this filth

  5. Modesty Schmodesty ! The louse habitat is just another form of muslim demonstration. The stink eminating from those sweaty louse bags ought to be enough to get them removed. Notice they didn’t say why the bitch was in jail. Prisoners are prisoners.

  6. Banning the garments which conceal identity should be a universal American policy.

    Here’s yet another example of egregious tolerance to the deceptive veil:
    Found: girl snatched from school by hefty sacked kidnapper

    “Missing 5-year-old Nailla Robinson, the girl who was snatched from a Cobbs Creek school Monday, was found safe in Delaware County overnight.”…”Nailla, a kindergartner at the Cullen Byrant Elementary School on 60th and Cedar Avenue, was allegedly snatched from the school around 8:50 a.m. by a woman claiming to be her mother.”…”The Philadelphia School District released a statement saying that the school didn’t realize the girl was missing until the Abdur-Rashid, came to pick her up.”…”Nailla’s family told NBC10 that surveillance video shows that a woman who appeared to be pregnant, wearing Muslim garb and going by the name “Tiffany” told school officials that she needed to take her daughter to breakfast. Then “Tiffany” signed Nailla out of school and walked away with her, according to the family….”In the surveillance camera that the school has that I watched, she’s dressed in traditional over-garment and Niqab,” said Abdur-Rashid. “She has her face covered and only her eyes showing. She’s wearing gloves. She’s wearing all black. She has something white on her arm and she has a long black umbrella. The surveillance camera shows them walking through the hallway to get to the door. The next camera picks up and she’s putting her umbrella up. Then they disappear.”

  7. BNI, the billboard image reminded me of the following video by a band called “Stuck Mojo.” The song is called “Open Season.” I think you might like it – I loved it. Perhaps post it on your blog.

  8. Where is Prince Dracula now that we need him? Vlad Tepes, the Impaler, the very real Prince Dracula of Transylvania in the Middle Ages was once visited by some biggies wearing some sort of head covering. He told his translator to tell these men to remove their head gear in his presence. They explained to him that their religion demanded that they wear them so Prince Dracula said, “In that case nail them onto their heads to make sure they don’t fall off.”

  9. There need be no special rights in prison. No head bags. The prisoners must be able to be identified and they could be hiding knives in their head bags. Say no to all muslim head bags.
