Ahmed Rehab talks to Red Eye Radio’s Marc Germain about a Muslim woman who was denied service at a convenience store because she refused to remove her hijab.

“It was a case of religious discrimination.  It may not have been purposeful, but the end result is the same,” Rehab said.  “Nuns wear headscarves on their hair as well and I don’t think anybody in their right mind would ask her to remove it at a store.”
