    Oklahoma Muslim woman says rights violated over headscarf

    TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Muslim woman who alleges she was denied entry into the Tulsa County Courthouse because of her religious headscarf has filed a federal lawsuit against the county sheriff.
    The lawsuit was filed Tuesday on behalf of Suha Elqutt by the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the American Civil Liberties Union of Oklahoma. A similar suit was filed in California.
    The lawsuit alleges Elqutt was refused entry to the courthouse on April 10 when metal detectors were set off by a hairpin under her hijab. It says officers insisted Elqutt remove her headscarf in front of male sheriff’s deputies in violation of her religious beliefs. She entered the courthouse after two female deputies inspected her hair in a parking garage.

    You can't wear a hairpin. It has nothing to do with religion. You set off the alarm.

    But, it will be turned into a Muslim/religion thing.

    Security at a courthouse survives the strict scrutiny test for an intrusion of such religious liberty, IMHO.

    Is a white man being discriminated against when he’s told to remove his cap while psssing through various security points?
