But Sabah Ali was having none of it. The tearful Ali said about the ban:
“Why do I have to be half naked to swim? To enjoy my time with my kids?" “I want to have the same rights as every citizen.”
“I told them I would take off the long dress, if that was their concern, and that I had clothes on underneath." “But they said if they let me, everyone would ask, ‘Why did you let them and not us?'”What part of 'no street clothes allowed' does she not understand? If certain Muslims are unwilling to conform, then maybe they should build pools for their overly modest selves.
The spokeswoman for the city, Michelle Halsted, said:
“The city routinely turns away people who don’t have appropriate swimwear — jean shorts, sport shorts, not wearing swim diapers." “We turn all those individuals away because the No. 1 focus for us is safety.”
Let's see how long it takes for CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) to get involved, and have those rules change to accomodate Muslims.
