Wear Hijab, get arrested and make $60,000

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Oct 17, 2021 at 02:26

Dear Dr Pipes, I found an interesting story for your Hijab collection. Three nice Muslimas got arrested in Brooklyn and they refused to remove their Hijabs for their mug-shots. Due to prevailing "Islamohobia" some discord arose, and the Muslimas sued the city for violating their human rights. They won a settlement of $60,000 from the city. How does the job decription "Wear Hijab, get arrested and make $60,000" appeals as a job description to your readers? Not bad, I would say.

dear reader: please also read my review of MP Claire Coutinho's speech in the British parliament. I draw a contrast between how Muslim minorities conduct themselves vs how they should.
