Muslim Woman Says Her Faith Was Attacked in Court
A Hammond, Ind., woman says she felt she and her Islamic faith were under attack Tuesday night when she declined a request to remove her head scarf during a visit to traffic court.
Yolanda Gray says she has been a Muslim her whole life and began wearing head scarves to signify her devotion to the Islamic religion. Gray said she was confronted about her head scarf once by a security guard at the entrance of City Hall and again by a court officer.
The security guard gave her no problem, she said, but a court officer threatened to make her leave the courtroom if she didn't either show proof of her religion or remove the head scarf.
