CAIR-MN: Metro Muslim woman ejected from Hibbing event over religion
by Shelby Capacio
The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has filed charges of discrimination on behalf of a Minneapolis woman who was physically escorted out of an event because of her religion.
"The retreat organizers engaged in discrimination when they denied a Muslim woman from participating in the event while opening it up to the rest of the public," said CAIR-MN Executive Director Lori Saroya.
In a release, the organization said it acted on behalf of Rania Elsweisy, a Muslim woman who was physically escorted out of the Annual Hibbing Area Women's Retreat at the request of the event speaker, who allegedly said she did not want a Muslim in the audience.
