Muslim Woman Sues Over Forcible Removal of Hijab At California Jail

CAIR-LA announced yesterday that it has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of a Muslim woman who had her hijab forcibly removed by Ventura County, California deputy sheriffs.  The incident occurred at the county jail after Jennifer Hyatt was arrested because of her involvement in a domestic dispute.  Even after she had been searched, deputies refused her request to wear her hijab when men were present, and instead violently pulled off the second part of her two-piece hijab.
