Muslim woman Jannah Hague was arrested by the Kent County Sheriff’s Department after a domestic altercation at her home and taken to the Kent County Jail where she was forced to remove her Islamic hijab head covering for a booking photograph.
CAIR Designated terrorist group CAIR has filed notice of a claim against the Kent County Sheriff Department on behalf of the 22-year-old Muslim, Janna Hague, who was arrested for a domestic altercation and taken to jail where she allegedly was “forcibly stripped” of her head covering in front of male officers and detainees over her objections. The mugshot was then placed on the sheriff’s office website that is searchable by the public.
The Kent County Sheriff’s office disputes the claim saying:
In a statement, CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid said: “Muslim women have the right to their sincerely-held religious expression even when encountering law enforcement. The Law enforcement officials involved in Ms. Hague’s detention need better training in Islamic religious rights (by CAIR, of course) to ensure that no Muslim woman is ever again striped of her hijab in public.”
In a statement, CAIR- MI Staff Attorney Amy V. Doukouresaid: “When a Muslim woman is stripped of her hijab for a photograph and that photograph is placed on the internet for all to view, it is akin to publishing a naked photograph of any woman and leaves the Muslim woman ashamed and embarrassed. (Then get the hell out of this country if you don’t like the rules)
