Muslim woman says she was fired from new job after refusing to stop wearing hijab
by Sarah Simmons
A Muslim woman said her boss fired her because she refused to remove her hijab at work.
Najaf Khan said the highly controversial comments recently in the political arena are making it harder for people of the Islamic faith and she sees her story as an example of that.
Khan was entering her third day on the job this past Monday as she walked in wearing her hijab at the Fair Oaks Dental Care in Fairfax, Va. She said her boss immediately took her into his office and told her she couldn't wear it.
Khan, who attends George Mason University, said she aspires to be a dentist and was excited to begin working at her new job last week.
