Please reconsider Detention Center policy that provides a special dress code exemption for hijabs.
I am astounded that the City of Atlanta would succumb to CAIR’s inappropriate demand to allow women in the City of Atlanta Detention Center to wear hijabs.
Hats and other head covers are banned in American state and federal prisons for security and safety reasons. Making an exception to this rule to appease followers of one religion sets a dangerous precedent.
The Quran does not require Muslim women to wear a hijab. To many people including many Muslim women, the hijab is headwear that exemplifies Islamist oppression. The truth is the hijab is not derived from the Quran but is legislated by Islamist dictates and fatwas that oppress and dominate woman. Strict Islamic law and fatwa enforcement requiring women to wear the hijab started only within the last 50 years. The hijab does not symbolize the freedoms and liberties bestowed upon all women who are under the protection of the United States Constitution.
I urge you to reconsider your policy that provides a special dress code exemption for hijabs based upon political pressure instead of public safety.
