'Muslim-Free Gun Range' In Oktaha Targeted In Lawsuit By CAIR, ACLU
by Brandi Ball and Tess Maune
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), along with the American Civil Liberties Union, filed a civil rights lawsuit on Wednesday against a gun range in Oktaha that claims to be "Muslim-free."
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of U.S. Army Reservist Raja'ee Fatihah, who says he was denied service at the facility because of his faith.
By displaying a sign banning Muslims, the lawsuit claims that the facility's policy violates Oklahoma's non-discrimination law as well as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a landmark piece of federal legislation that forbids a place of business from denying service to customers based on their race, religion or national origin.
