Islamic Woman Told to Remove Religious Headscarf at St. Louis County Jail
CBS St. Louis
An Islamic leader in St. Louis thinks St. Louis County jailers went to far when they ordered an Islamic woman to remove her religious headscarf.
"The officer said take it off or we will take it off for you" said Executive Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations Faizan Syed.
He says that's the order given to an Islamic woman recently jailed for a short time for an unpaid traffic ticket.
