Massachusetts School Bans Covered Faces, CAIR Complains, School Caves

(Boston, Massachusetts) The Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Services has banned face coverings by students and employees. Reportedly, the ban protects students and employees from being attacked.

In response, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging that the policy has a "a disproportionate impact on the religious rights of Muslim employees.”

Then the school caved. The ban no longer applies to religious face coverings.
