Falun Gong Adherent Charges Chinese Restaurant In New York With Discrimination

Wednesday's Epoch Times reports on an unusual case charging religious discrimination in public accommodations heard by the New York State Division of Human Rights this week. Three adherents of Falun Gong claimed that employees of a Chinese restaurant in Flushing Queens refused to serve them because of their religious beliefs. Zhen Sun told the administrative law judge that she went into the Lucky Joy Restaurant with a friend, and when employees saw her T-shirt reading "“Falun Dafa", they told her that they do not sell food to Falun Gong. She was ultimately told by the restaurant's owner to leave. No one attended the hearing to defend the Restaurant.
