Blasphemy Accused Elderly Man Who Was Shot Dead Inside Pakistan Court Was American Citizen, Says US
https://swarajyamag.com/news-brief/blas ... en-says-us
According to the statement issued late Thursday by the US State department, the deceased Tahir Ahmad Naseem was “lured to Pakistan” from his home in Illinois and entrapped by the country’s blasphemy laws. However, the statement did not elaborate on the circumstances in which he came to be in Pakistan.

As per an earlier report, the deceased Tahir Ahmad Naseem was arrested two years ago on the charges of blasphemy for claiming to be a prophet and was being brought to the court from Peshawar Central Jail. He died on the spot after being shot six times in the court of Additional Session Judge Shaukatullah Khan.

A lawyer, present inside in the courtroom, was quoted by the report as saying, “During the hearing of the case, the complainant said that the accused was an Ahmadi and asked him to recite the Kalima-e-Tayyaba.” After this the complainant fired at the elderly man and killed him.

The accused was arrested from the high security court complex and he later reportedly told police that Prophet Muhammad had ordered him to kill Nasim because he had belonged to the Ahmadi faith.

Three women take state's Kids Dept to court, claiming discrimination
https://www.delawarepublic.org/post/thr ... rimination
Three Muslim women are suing Delaware’s Department of Services of Children, Youth, and their Families for discrimination, including prohibiting them from wearing a hijab at work.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Wilmington-based law firm of Jacobs and Crumplar are representing Tia Mays, Madinah Brown, and Shakeya Thomas in the suit.

Last year, Brown filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Delaware Department of Labor saying she faced discrimination because she wasn’t allowed to practice her Muslim faith by wearing a hijab, or a head covering worn by some Muslim women. Brown had worked at the New Castle County Detention Center since 2012.

Both Mays and Thomas have since come forward with the same complaints.

In Mays’ case, she says she was working at the Ferris School Boys for a couple of weeks when she was presented a packet with the dress code highlighted, specifically no head coverings, no hat, or scarf on the head.
