Designated terrorist group CAIR is demanding that the University of Kentucky Police Department and the Lexington-Fayette Division of Community Corrections to launch an investigation of the alleged mistreatment of a Muslim woman who was arrested by police, then refused her request to wear her Islamic hijab for a mug shot in detention.
CAIR The woman was reportedly handcuffed and held for hours and forced to take her hijab off for the booking photo. She said:
“Once the handcuffs were put on they wanted to search me and asked me to take off my hijab. This was not done in a private room, this was done in the public hall where everybody could see me. I refused this and requested that this would happen in a more private place. I was then brought to another room which had a window door and put on a toilet were there was a half wall which would still not cover my head. I was forced to sit bent over for a long time which I couldn’t hold very long. Then I used my dress as a headscarf to be able to sit straight and without back pain….I truly feel terrorized, terrified and abused by those officers”
