Muslim cabby fined for not allowing woman up front
by Danielle Furfaro and Kevin Fasick
A Muslim taxi driver refused to let a woman ride up front with him as her family piled into his yellow cab at Penn Station — later claiming that his religion forbids him from being that close to a female stranger.
But a city judge didn't buy the Islam argument and socked the driver with a $350 fine for his discrimination.
Fellow Muslims on Friday said Tamsir Drammeh's excuse was a stretch.
