E-mails show organizers of Muslim outing to Playland aware of rules; flyer silent
by Rebecca Baker
Rye Playland officials were clear about their ban on hijabs and other "headgear" to leaders of the Muslim American Society, but the message never made it onto a flyer promoting the event.
A string of emails obtained by The Journal News between Playland Event coordinator Adam Harvey and MAS New York president Hatem Gawaly included questions about the head scarves Muslim women wear.
"I need to get more details please about whether a burka/hijab constitutes as a head gear," Gawaly wrote to Harvey on July 19. "There will be a lot of commotion about this."
