First, read this short 'essay' written by a woman who is complaining about having to remove her hijab during a mug shot:

Student Voice: 'I am a Muslim and I love this country' - Colorado Daily

Then, sit back and enjoy some of whatever she's been drinking or smoking. I mean, come on...you were arrested for a DUI...which means you drank, smoked, or otherwise imbibed something that your religion tells you that you can't drink, smoke, or imbibe.

Moderator cut: deleted ..... taking your scarf off for 30 seconds isn't going to kill him. Why the whine-fest over being required to remove a piece of fabric from your head for the mug shot? It's not just your face that is being recorded when you're arrested. They look at all sorts of things, including your ears, your hair, your neck, etc. You chose to put yourself in this situation, pull up your big-girl burka and deal with it.

You were driving drunk (or impaired in some way). You got caught. Your "right" to keep your Allah-hat on doesn't apply when you're being booked, sorry. If this small thing is enough to make you doubt your allegiance to your country, then perhaps you should find yourself a crusty old muslim man in the middle east somewhere, and become his fourth wife. That way you could go whole hog and wear the entire burka, eye-netting and all! Fun!!

If you want to drink which is not allowed in Islam then take the hijab off and get your pict taken, because you already blew it.....

Hmm...using religion as a defense. Interesting.

What good is a mugshot that is partially covered up?

Exactly why they wanted her to remove it.

No one deserves a "The Law Doesn't Apply To Me Because Of My Religion!" pass.

This is a law with a secular purpose. That it happens to mandate something that someone doesn't like based on a particular religion is irrelevant.

This young woman is looking at the matter the wrong way. It's not Islamophobia that she needs to deal with here or any religious strife. Law enforcement just needed to snap a photo of her without the headgear. It's for identification, after all. She put herself in that predicament. And as a longtime American and college student, she must have known that her head scarf would get in the way.

I have this picture in my head of a hijab wearing muslim with a drink in hand.... Sorry if this is flip but I wonder if the Qur'an was in the other hand?
