A University of Colorado student who started wearing hijab after converting to Islam is fighting the Boulder County Jail's insistence that she remove her headscarf for a booking photo, saying that to do so would violate her religious beliefs.
Maria Hardman, 19, of Boulder, reported to the jail Wednesday to do the paperwork for a two-day work crew sentence that was supposed to be served this weekend. But when a jail detention officer told her to remove her headscarf for her mug shot, she balked.
"It's stated in the Koran in two or three places that believing women should wear the veil, except in the company of close family members," she said.
Hardman said she spent three hours at the jail while her lawyer tried to convince officials to let her take the picture with her scarf. She eventually was allowed to leave the jail without taking a picture at all. She said she was told she would be found in contempt of court for being out of compliance with her sentence.

Too bad, she got thrown in jail, she should be required to remove it !
Giving in to her demands would be giving in to Sharia law, which always starts with a Balkanizing, subset of judicial proceedings.
You come to this country, you live by our laws, not the child rapist’s.
They hate the West.
Why are they here ?
KICK THEM THE HELL OUT OF THE US ALREADY - the purpose of the photo is to physically ID them - a black ninja face mask is impossible to do such - why is this an issue???
Don’t want to take a govt ID photo “in the face”? Then GET OUT!!! and stay out!!!
Maybe I’m totally unsympathetic to these musscum but any woman wearing a hijab and winds up in jail should be required to remove their headrag or sit in solitary with minimal food until they comply.
They hate the West.
Why are they here ?”””””
They are infiltrating this country.
They are preparing to take us over completely.
America needs to wake up.
I believe that is why they make CATTLE PRODS???
They don’t have to strap on bombs any more. All they have to do is attack us at our weakest spot - the ultra-liberal courts. They will have whatever they want, and will just waltz in and impose their savage laws on normal people.
I read the entire article and laughed when I read she was locked up for a D.U.I. (she states she was given alcohol unknowingly). Yeah, right. So, she liked to drink alcohol, drive a scooter drunk but doesn’t want to play by the rules that everyone else has to. Tough! If she was following Islam, she wouldn’t have been at a party without a brother/male cousin (if at all) and wouldn’t have been allowed to drive. Pick something... either you want the freedom the rest of us enjoy (even being stupid) or you want to cling to the Koran. (IMHO) Just a thought.
She KNEW she was intoxicated, yet she chose to drive...um..guilty. Take off the hat lady.
Going to jail should be a very unpleasant experience. Being forced to remove her hood may be the Arab moon god’s way of telling her to stop breaking laws.
Pull that f’ing rag off her head and take the picture.
The latest installment of “What’s In / What’s Out”.
Pornoscanners for all in airports are okay and uncovered portraits for Muslim women are not okay.
4th Amendment: OUT / Sharia Law: IN.
Our Country, our laws. Not Sharia. Don’t like it, leave.
Look what just happened in OK, of all places.
It’s called Lawfare.
If we were “her people”, we’d just bury her in the ground up to her shoulders and stone her to death for public intoxication and being in public without a male relative present. So, if she wants Islamic law, then let’s give it to her.
“They hate the West.
Why are they here ?”
To reap the bounty of a free Christian society.
A largesse utterly impossible under the pathology known as Islam.
