    DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (WJBK) -A Muslim woman filed a federal lawsuit against the Dearborn Heights Police Department for forcing her to remove her hijab after being arrested.

    Malak Kazan, 27, says that officers violated her right to religious freedom.

    Kazan was arrested for a warrant following a traffic stop and being forced to remove her hijab, or head scarf, was religious discrimination.

    "Your religious freedoms are not stripped at the jailhouse door," said her attorney Amir Makled. "It's part of the cannons of their faith to wear a head scarf. For her to have ti removed in front of a non-relative male, would be a non-pleasant experience for her.:

    Kazan had let her driver's license expire and there were two warrants for her arrest because she never appeared in court. In November of 2014, she was booked and detained.

    "Articles such as hats, caps, hijabs, can contain concealable items that could pose a threat or chance of injury to the cops or to themselves," said Dearborn Heights Police Chief Lee Garvin.

    Makled disagrees.

    "At this point she is only doing a booking photograph," he said. "They can't get in here and say officer safety. It's a booking photo it's used for identity purposes only."

    Also part of the lawsuit was that there were no female officers present during the booking.

    "Our procedure is to have them take the hijab off in the presence of a female," Garvin said. "We don't always have enough female officers present in the station. Our No. 1 concern is security of our officers and the prisoners."

    As a result, Kazan filed the federal lawsuit to change the department's policy and her humiliation.

    "You have to remove your head scarf in order to take the booking photograph," Makled said. "We found that practice to be extremely discriminatory."

    Professor Larry Dubin from the University of Detroit Law School thinks she has a good religious discrimination lawsuit.

    "The First Amendment guarantees religious freedom," Dubin said. "She is entitled to wear the hijab and not have it taken off unless there is a more state compelling interest that needs to be satisfied.

    "And that's what a federal judge is going to have to decide."

    I guess that means we can now file a lawsuit for having to take our caps and cowboy hats off.

    It would be totally bullshit to allow ANYONE and that includes Muslims to keep any part of their bodies covered which could easily conceal a weapon. Who's to say she not hiding an ice pick or a boxcutter or razor blades under that hijab? As along as proper proceedures are followed which apply to EVERYONE and are conducted under the supervision of a female officer, they have no reason to bitch.
    And oh yeah, maybe if she wouldn't have been caught driving with an expired license this could all have been avoided.

    I couldnt agree more!
    But how do mugshots work, since this savage would rarely be caught outside without her head condom, would it make sense to take a picture without it...they should do both i guess.

    Everytime ive been locked up, you still go thru the booking process which required me to take off all my street clothes and squat and cough. This is even when i was released on my own recognizance 4 hours later.

    It's absurd. This is going on 45 minutes away. Religion does not take precedence over law. On the flip side of this is the lesbian teacher who was fired by a catholic school and laws created so that religious organizations don't have to pay for healthcare that includes contraception. It's out of control.

    Couldn't agree more. There is a reason for separation of church and state. when you enter a courtroom you are now under American laws.
