Flap over flag, hijab leads to suspension of Hernando student

7 09 2009

A Muslim student did not stand up for the Pledge of Allegiance. A classmate of her decided to confront her in the hallway and demand she take her hijab off. She went on to explain that she plans to enlist in the Army so she can go to Iraq and fight against other enemies that look like her. The parents of the 16-year old feel that this hateful, racist, and threatening harassment falls well within her freedom of speech. Just when you think we’re making progress after 9/11, you hear a story like this that sets us back another ten years.
