New Jersey Muslim woman sues uber-progressive ‘The New School for Social Research’ in NYC over anti-Muslim rhetoric
Could it be? Are we seeing ‘progressives’ in one of the most leftist universities in the country finally waking up to what Islam is really all about?
NY Post A New Jersey Muslim woman slapped The New School with a lawsuit on Friday alleging she had to quit her job there in March after being routinely bombarded with racist (what ‘race’ is Islam?) slurs by co-workers — and was even ordered not to wear her Muslim hijab (headbag) to work.
Jamilah Moudiab filed a civil-rights lawsuit in Manhattan federal court that also alleges her supervisor, Monique Ngozi Nri, told her shortly after she was hired in 2011 that the Manhattan university is a “religious free zone” and that “if [she] wants to stay at The New School, [she] must not wear a headdress.”
Moudiab, who quit her job as an international student advisor in March, claims mischievous co-workers even anonymously placed a Christian cross and Rosary beads on her desk to “further castigate” her Muslim beliefs. Among the other complaints in the suit is that the Clifton, NJ-resident was harassed by co-workers for putting up photos of Trayvon Martin after he was shot to death by cops.
She claims she was scolded by Nri for expressing her belief to co-workers that Martin was “murdered for walking,” adding Nri felt the Florida teen was the “aggressor” with authorities in the high-profile shooting. Both The New School and Moudiab’s lawyer, Laurie Morrison, declined comment.
