Luna Park Booted Muslim Woman Who Asked Not to Sit Near Man on Ride: Suit
by James Fanelli
A Muslim woman was called a "terrorist b----" and kicked out of Luna Park after she asked not to sit next to a man on a ride because of her religious beliefs, a new lawsuit charges.
Brooklyn resident Asmaa Abdalla and her husband, Ibrahim Hamed, are suing the amusement park's owner, claiming a fun outing to Coney Island last summer turned into a nightmare when its workers hurled racist epithets and physically assaulted Hamed because of her request.
The lawsuit says that the couple was at Luna Park on July 30, boarding a flume ride called "Wild River," when Abdalla asked the operator not to seat her next to an adult male to keep in accordance with her religious beliefs.
