Muslims vs. McDonalds

If I were a betting person I would put my money on the Muslims especially since you can be sure that CAIR is already on the scene.  CAIR is the Council on American Islamic Relations (aka the Muslim Mafia) and if I were a betting person, I’d bet CAIR is behind this.   An immigrant from Bangladesh was told she could not wear her head scarf while working at McDonald’s in Detroit. From UPI:

DETROIT, April 14 (UPI) — A Muslim woman in Michigan says she was turned down for a job at McDonald’s because she wears a headscarf or hijab.

Nasihah Barlaskar, 19, the daughter of immigrants from Bangladesh, has filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission [many critics call the EEOC CAIR’s handmaiden-ed], the Detroit Free Press reported. She alleges she failed to get a job at a McDonald’s restaurant in Rochester Hills because of religious bias.

In an interview with the newspaper, Barlaskar said a manager asked her during a March 27 interview whether she was required to wear “that thing,” referring to her headscarf. She said she responded: “I do. Is that a problem?”

The manager told her she would not be able to wear the hijab on the job, she said.

Meanwhile other western countries are actually attempting to ban the hijab, most notably Canada, Belgium and France.  I haven’t followed the news that closely on the issue in those countries so I don’t know where it stands, but will report it here when I find out.

Just for your information, Bangladesh is a Muslim country that has been making the news lately for its attacks on Rohingya Muslims seeking refuge there.  Because Bangladesh is discriminating against its co-religionists we have begun resettling Rohingya to the US.   That is a whole other story that you can learn about in our Rohingya Reports category here.
