Oh the irony of the drunk but devout (hee, hee) Muslima refusing to remove her scarf. Her piety moves me. (/sarc)
Of course I do not need to remind Atlas readers that alcohol is not halal. It is forbidden, which is why the cab drivers in America's largest airports refused to take passengers who were carrying any alcohol. Remember that attack by islamic supremacists?
But it's not about halal, it's about Islamic supremacism. Special rights for special classes, our superiors.
BOULDER (AP) - A Muslim woman who refused to remove her headscarf for a Boulder County jail booking photo has been told she'll have to explain her refusal to a judge.
19-year-old Maria Hardman of Boulder, who says she converted to Islam three years ago, pleaded guilty to an alcohol violation and was sentenced to two days in jail plus community service.
She told the Boulder Daily Camera on Friday that removing her headscarf for the photo would violate her beliefs because the Quran calls for Muslim women to wear the scarf except in the company of close family.
A police report said Hardman's blood-alcohol level was 0.19, more than twice the legal limit, after she crashed her motor-scooter in August. Alcohol consumption is generally considered to be banned by Islam.
Hardman said she was told to remove the scarf for the photo Wednesday, when she reported to the jail to do paperwork in preparation for a two-day work crew as part of her sentence.
She said her attorney spent three hours trying to persuade officials to let her wear the scarf for the photo. She said jail officials eventually allowed her to leave without taking her photo, but it's not clear whether she began serving her sentence.
