A Muslim women reported the US security Company for not hiring her as an employee in the firm, because of wearing a hijab.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations on the statement of Zahraa-Imani Ali from St Louis County, Missouri, filed the federal lawsuit , alleging that a nationwide security firm discriminated against prospective Muslim employee.

The lawyer Robert West said that the company refused to hire, “at least in part, but likely entirely, on the fact that Ms Ali wears the hijab as part of her adherence to the Islamic faith”

The “recruitment specialist” said that there should not be a problem, but in a series of emails, a regional compliance manager recommended that the specialist “side step” and “pass on” Ali, according to the suit.

Faizan Syed, executive director of the council’s Missouri chapter, said in a statement. “The mainstreaming of Islamophobia has made it much harder for American Muslims to gain employment because of religious discrimination”

The mainstreaming of Islamophobia has made it much harder for American Muslims to gain employment because of religious discrimination,”

While considering the situation, I believe that every person has a right to wear clothing and accessories in which they feel comfortable. A person should not be judged by a physical appearance, no matter what.
