Nusaiba Mubarak was at a police commission meeting to speak out against a fatal police shooting when police officers handcuffed her, searched her, and forcibly removed her hijab. Now Mubarak is seeking justice.
Nusaiba Mubarak said she felt embarrassed and exposed when an LAPD officer forcibly removed her hijab. “The only words that could come to my mind were, ‘You just removed my scarf. That’s a religious headscarf,’” she said. via
