WATCH: Muslim woman in niqab told by dollar store staff to unveil or leave

StaffRebel Columnist

A Muslim woman in Indiana was told to leave Family Dollar if she wouldn't remove her niqab.

Thirty-two-year-old Sarah Safi told Fox 6 that, “I might have made it 10 steps into the store and I hear the lady behind the counter say, ‘Ma’am, you need to take that off your face or you need to leave my store.”

She then told the manager that she was wearing a niqab and a hijab for religious purposes.

The manager then explained that because of the amount of crime in the area, they get robbed a lot. “I understand, but you have to understand, too, this is a high crime area and we get robbed a lot. You need to remove that from your face or remove yourself from the store.”

Safi filmed the incident on her phone, but left when the manager said police would be called if she didn't vacate the premises.

Family Dollar has yet to release a statement.

An alternative course of action would have been to ask the woman with the black cloth bag over her head to go into a separate room with a female store employee, show her face for the sake of keeping the peace and then “accidentally” giving her a black plastic bag to wear instead. Problem solved.

A set up to make money off a lawsuit! Privately owned business has the right to choose who their customers may be. ’Nuff said!

Myth: “its religious”. No, its a relatively new tradition. Thirty years ago it was very uncommon.

Another example of a contrarian muslim of convenience out to provoke a response and to record it for a HRC charge. Everyone in the store at a time like this should shout her down. Nice southern accent for a muzzie, don’t you think?

The whole country, our government, should tell her and the rest to unveil or leave. Respect our culture, respect the rights of women, respect our cultural fashions…or you can leave.

Her store…..she has the right to make the rules and she had a valid reason.

Like free speech and life and the right to defend that life is an inalienable, God given right and other basic rights we have that are inherent in being human, that no man or government can give you or take away from you – we don’t actually have the ability to exercise those rights anymore!
Pierre Trudeau extinguished our ability to exercise those rights we had under British Common Law when he patriated our Constitution from Britain and forced the unmandated so-called Charter of Rights and Freedoms on us. He turned our country, run under the British system into the French system of codified law, enabling the government to extinguish the exercise of those basic human rights.
Like a baker being forced to bake a cake for a homosexual ‘marriage’ or a photographer, or even a store owner not being able to refuse service anymore…
We have the right and we don’t!

The store manager is well within her rights to serve who she wishes.
The “bag hag” wearing the “hag bag” is nothing but an agent provocateur trying to incite some kind of action or reaction from the manager and perhaps even the other clients in the store.
Just as an aside, it was reported on August the fifth, that Canada’s unemployment levels have risen over the past six months. I wonder, could it have risen by the number of freakin refugees that have been brought to our shores to pillage and rape us under the guise of humanitarian relief?
I also wonder what country will be ready to accept white Canadian refugees when we are overrun by the Muslim hordes intent on destroying us.
We had better start negotiations to set up a safe haven for our children to escape to in the next few years.

More of this please.

I wonder why wearing a white hood is not OK but this is?

Well done sir. Who knows who is under that garbage bag.

Quick like a bunny out came the camera AS SOON AS THE MANAGER TOLD HER TO TAKE OFF THE MASK…amazingly quick draw artist?…provoking the store owner in a high crime area should be against the law…and yes, where was her male escort…sounds like an American woman with a southern accent…strange that a southern women raised in the Bible belt would be wearing a burka isn’t it and walking around just waiting to use her camera? Hope her plot fails.

Ignorant muslim.

This just made my day!
God bless that store manager for her correct behavior and her courage.
God curse Islam.
…and now God please protect that store manager from the shyte-storm that is likely coming…

What a loser. ‘It’ gave up pretty fast,just enough footage to capture the cruel and inhumane way ‘It’ was treated by the blessed Employee. Wow,wonder how many millions ‘It’ is expecting from a human rights lawsuit? ‘It’ sounds to be an unlikable and perhaps bullied loudmouth who finally discovered a way to cover up a tormented face and vengeful spirit. Now is possible to have sex a dozen times a day and pop out many little innocent ‘Its’ while receiving any kind of attention, while sucking money out of the welfare system as hubby plots.
commented 2016-08-05 13:58:40 -0400
This clearly appears to be a set-up. I may be wrong, but the accent of the wearer seems to support my suspicions.
commented 2016-08-05 13:51:52 -0400
Where was her male escort? If she is really just following her religion she would have had an escort. Sharia in Islam demands that a woman not go ANYWHERE without a male escort.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM: 31,466 Attacks, 199,846 Killed, 280,612 Injured…. that we know of.
commented 2016-08-05 13:06:50 -0400
Face covering in public in light of the crime and terrorist escalation, is an uncivil act that riskes public safety. If this woman can claim religious immunity from civil responsibility, she is in the wrong country.

And this is exactly what wearing black bedsheets is for – deception – this is not religion, this is a front for fraud, theft and anything else you can think of by hiding under black bed sheets.

Damn goat fuckers!!!
commented 2016-08-05 12:20:06 -0400
Until that muslim filth spoke, one wouldn’t even know if what sex IT is.

Good work Family Dollar Manager
commented 2016-08-05 12:19:04 -0400
Can you imagine the loot you could hide under a full bee suit?
This was a head and face covering, the vid didn’t show what else she was wearing.
I give that store manager kudo’s for not backing down. I hope the manager can withstand the flack that will inevitably be coming her way. The robbery potential and the shoplifting potential are serious possibilities a store manager should be able to protect themselves from. This ‘religious’ excuse should not be able to trump safety, and the rights of everyone else.

Nowhere in the Quran dose it state that a woman has to cover her face.

Just dumb arsed Muslims proving that they are dumb arsed Muslims.

They must be lacking in vitamin D also, through lack of Sunshine.
commented 2016-08-05 12:07:12 -0400
“This is a religious garment, ma’am.”
No, the face covering is NOT a religious requirement, period, and it’s about time for the victims of this scam to start standing up the to the “freedom of religion” BS.
Your move, Family Dollar.
