CAIR Seeks Apology After Muslim Man is Barred From Subway Restaurant
by Laine Doss
CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has issued an action alert, asking "people of conscience" to demand an apology from Subway's President and CEO Fred DeLuca after a muslim couple were denied service at a Shreveport, Louisiana Subway.
According to CAIR, A "63-year old New Orleans resident of South Asian heritage" and his wife stopped at a Subway restaurant in Shreveport on November 21, 2012. The couple used the restrooms, and the man exited the fast food restaurant.
When he attempted to re-enter, he was "blocked at the door by a female SUBWAY employee who allegedly asked him "Are you Muslim?" When the victim replied that he is indeed Muslim, the SUBWAY employee reportedly responded, "We can't serve you." The employee then went inside the restaurant and locked the door behind her."
