Amazing Initiative..Masha Allah!

I read the following article few days ago. It is heart aching to know how the struggle of hijab is a continues one.. Subhan Allah!

---------------------------------------------------------

U.S. judge jails Muslim woman over head scarf

Ga. resident refused to remove hijab at court's security checkpoint

updated 2:48 p.m. ET, Wed., Dec. 17, 2008

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. - A judge ordered a Muslim woman arrested Tuesday for contempt of court for refusing to take off her head scarf at a security checkpoint.

The judge ordered Lisa Valentine, 40, to serve 10 days in jail, said police in Douglasville, a city of about 20,000 people on Atlanta's west suburban outskirts.

Valentine violated a court policy that prohibits people from wearing any headgear in court, police said.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations urged federal authorities to investigate the incident as well as others in Georgia.

"I just felt stripped of my civil, my human rights," Valentine told The Associated Press on Wednesday from her home, after she said she was unexpectedly released once CAIR got involved. Jail officials declined to say why she was freed.

No comment from judge
Municipal Court Judge Keith Rollins said that "it would not be appropriate" for him to comment on the case.

Last year, a judge in Valdosta in southern Georgia barred a Muslim woman from entering a courtroom because she would not remove her head scarf. There have been similar cases in other states, including Michigan, where a Muslim woman in Detroit filed a federal lawsuit in February 2007 after a judge dismissed her small-claims court case when she refused to remove a head and face veil.

Valentine's husband, Omar Hall, said his wife was accompanying her nephew to a traffic citation hearing when officials stopped her at the metal detector and told her she would not be allowed in the courtroom with the head scarf, known as a hijab.

Hall said Valentine, an insurance underwriter, told the bailiff that she had been in courtrooms before with the scarf on and that removing it would be a religious violation. When she turned to leave and uttered an expletive, Hall said a bailiff handcuffed her and took her before the judge.

----------------------------------------------------------

P.S: Google the title of the article & you should come across the same article from msnbc, scroll down & click on "LIVE Vote: Agree & disagree & answer the question: Do you agree with a judge's ruling to have a woman arrested for refusing to take off her head scarf?

No, the plan is for it to expand into a community, online, for sisters in hijab.
Of course, personal stories will be a big part of that, and right now, they are the main focus. But, alhamdulillah, there are quite a few plans for adding other unique (hijab-related) things to the website InshaAllah.

Make du'aa

And if you'd like to write or help out, don't hesitate to e-mail InshaAllah!
waAllahu'alim.
