Re: Muslim Scarf Ban at Rye Playland

Uh, okay. I'd much rather hear good news about this park, as I love it.

Maybe the term "headgear" doesn't have a clear definition to people and should be changed to something more obviously all-inclusive like "head coverings".

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

They don't let me wear my hat on the rides either, clearly because I'm an Orlando Magic fan. :p People need to get over themselves and accept that the rules apply to them too.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Wonder what they do with the women if in county jail? They have to wear a hajib anywhere in public eye. How does that play out in jail where you have a uniform or whatever it is called?

^ We don't allow them to wear their headgear in our jail.

But yeah, reading between the lines, they were told way ahead of time they couldn't do it, they tried it, they got caught, they started crap, it's almost like it was planned. I would hope that it wasn't, but I just get that feeling.

If this was in America, it would be all over CNN and other news talk shows not to mention a lawsuit would already have been filed.

I will edit this because I had my playlands all jacked up do to huffing Co2: I'm surprised its not all over CNN and that lawsuits haven't been filed yet.

^The park is in Rye, New York. I guess we'll see what comes out of it. Rules are rules.

I agree that she unfairly played a 'card' against Rye Playland. So unfortunate that self perceived inequalities still exist today.

What I think is ridiculous is how members of the tour group are playing the victim and trying to bring in the Muslim/discrimination jabber. Get over yourselves. There are park rules that everyone has to follow, including you. You're not special. You don't like it, leave. Better yet, try using some common sense by doing some research before you go to avoid situations like this. End of story.

One thing to know about America in general, DO NOT ASSAULT THE COPS, you WILL get arrested.
#2: Follow park rules as if they are another country, you break the rules, you get in trouble.

Now, if she just cooperated with the park and understood that there is a no headgear policy she could have asked for a re-fund, and if that wasn't allowed, now she knows that there is a no headgear policy and to not tickets again or remove the headgear(Impossible in public according to Muslim religion).

The reality: she resisted authority and got arrested.

I love donkeys more than me.

I'm sure this story has already been told on Al-Jazeer TV across the pond, angering Muslims over there.
