New Jersey Banks Remove Posters Banning Hijab

The posters had an image of a woman wearing hijab (head scarf), along with images of a woman in sunglasses, a man in a hard-hat, and a man wearing a cap. 

CAIR-NJ asked the bank to review that "inappropriate and discriminatory" policy that would impact Muslim women wearing scarves, observant members of some other faiths. 

"We thank Century Savings Bank for taking prompt action to avoid the appearance that they discriminate against those who wear certain attire for religious reasons," said CAIR New Jersey Civil Rights Director Khurrum Ali. 

Ali said CAIR-NJ will work with bank officials to craft a policy that ensures both security and religious freedom. 

CAIR helped resolve a number of similar incidents nationwide in which Muslim customers wearing hijab have been harassed or denied service because of "no hats" policies being implemented in banks nationwide.
