A Fox 6 report says a Muslim woman in Indiana was asked to leave a Family Dollar store for wearing full Islamic garb, and the woman recorded the incident on video.
Thirty-two-year-old Sarah Safi says she had just entered a Gary, IN Family Dollar store to purchase some charcoal when she was told to uncover her face or leave.
“I might have made it 10 steps into the store and I hear the lady behind the counter say, ‘Ma’am, you need to take that off your face or you need to leave my store,’” Safi told reporters.
That is when Safi pulled out her phone to record the exchange. She told the employee, who said she was the manager, that she was wearing a niqab and a hijab for religious purposes.
The employee responded, “I understand, but you have to understand, too, this is a high crime area and we get robbed a lot. You need to remove that from your face or remove yourself from the store.”
