What a great forum this is, with everyone contributing their various views !

Let me ask my non-Muslim fellow countrymen here in the United States a question:

Let's postulate that you have a business based in an office and have about a dozen employees. You have a vacancy that needs to be filled. In response to your want ad in the local newspaper, various people appear to be interviewed for the job.

One is a Muslim female clad in a burqa. If other equally qualified individuals applied, would she stand a chance of getting the job ?
