Remember when your fourth-grade teacher made you take off your Dodgers cap for you class photo? Well, this is sort of like that:
A Muslim woman who was erroneously told to remove her headscarf for a driver’s license photo will be allowed to retake her photo with the head covering on.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said Thursday that a Department of Motor Vehicle employee in Oceanside insisted that the woman remove her headscarf, even though state rules allow for religious head coverings in ID photos.
In fact, this may have been a bit of a non-story. Just a misunderstanding. The DMV employee said she asked the Muslim woman to “move” her head covering, not “remove” it.
