by Walter O'Brien
A muslim woman who was asked to remove a traditional face covering, or niqab, by a shopping mall guard, has filed a lawsuit claiming discrimination against the guard and the mall's owners.
Wakeelah Salaam, of Elizabeth, has filed a lawsuit against Bridgewater Commons mall, its owner, General Growth Properties, its mall security vendor, IPC International Corporation, and Marc Krause, a former mall guard.
On May 20, 2012, Salaam was shopping at Bridgewater Commons with her two young children when she claims she was "victimized, harassed, intimidated, insulted and subjected to unlawful discrimination" by Krause, according to the complaint.
