N.J. school board called FBI on Muslim teacher after firing, lawsuit says
by Sallie Graziano
Sireen Hashem, a Muslim teacher at Hunterdon Central Regional High School, had just lost her job in what she described in a lawsuit as a firing motivated by religion discrimination when the FBI came knocking on her door in July.
The agents told Hashem they were investigating a report that she told school board members "they would be sorry" if they didn't reconsider the decision not to renew her contract as she made a plea to keep her job in June.
"This is a teacher, a very qualified and very loved, very competent teacher, working for the benefit of the school. She was humiliated, discriminated against, and dismissed," Hashem's attorney, Omar Mohammedi, said Friday.
