Council on American-Islamic Relations Writes to EEOC About Massachusetts School
by Jeff Greer
The Council on American-Islamic Relations wants to file a third-party complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission after a Massachusetts college banned all clothing that covers a student's face, CAIR said in a letter to the EEOC on Wednesday.
The Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Services implemented its new policy around the same time that an alumnus of the college was arrested for plotting terrorist strikes. The school says the ban has nothing to do with the arrest of 2008 graduate Tarek Mehanna, but CAIR says that the policy "negatively impacts the religious rights" of the school's faculty and staff. There is no mention of students in CAIR's complaint letter.
