A muslim soldier will sue the u.s. army for allegedly forced her to take her hijab in front of his soldiers, colleagues.
In an interview with Yahoo told Cesilia Valdonivos for about a week ago that she has been subjected to ’extremely hateful’ behavior because of its muslim identity.
- I was called a terrorist. I was called ISIS. I hear comments that I'm the reason why 9/11 took place. There is much anger and enmity, she told in the interview that the past week has gone round the world.
She says that she is back in June 2018, had obtained permission of his colonel to wear a hijab along with her uniform.
But last month, she submitted a complaint to the u.s. army ligestillingskontor, after her parent allegedly grabbed her arm, pulled her out of the geleddet and forced her to remove hijabben in front of all her colleagues.
'I felt embarrassed and in a way religiously raped', she wrote in an email to the legal organization, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which represents her in the case.
Cesilia Valdonivos, who converted to Islam in 2016, telling ABC that the problem began last year when she was in Afghanistan on his third deployment. Here, she says, she was, among other things, called 'the girl with the cap' and 'ninja' when she walked in her black hijab.
The hateful konfrontationerne stopped allegedly, when she came home to the UNITED states, where the episode, where she, according to his complaint, was forced to remove her hijab, took place.
on Top of it all, she has been demoted from sergeant to specialist, and even though the army denies that it has anything with Cesilia Valdonivos' action to do, so she believes, anyway, that it hangs together.
Her attorney, Mikey Weinstein, who is the founder and president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, tells now to the ABC that they have plans to sue. Right now is the time to assess whether they should do so by sending a complaint to the U. S. Commission on Civil Rights, or whether they shall sue sue in Denver, where Cesilia Valdonivos servant, or in Virginia, where the Pentagon is located.
the military Base Fort Carson enlisted in the beginning of the march out, to 'sergeant Valdonivos according to those present clearly had a grip on his hair'.
'The commanding officer asked the soldier to remove her hijab in order to see if her hair was set according to the rules. When she had removed her veil, discovered the soldier's leaders, that her hair was down, which is not allowed while wearing the uniform', is it in the official opinion, according to, among other things, the ABC and the New York Post.
'The commander-in-chief asked the sergeant Valdonivos to put her hair according to the regulations and not let it happen again. The soldier never got to know that she might not be wearing the hijab, it sounded on.
But in Cesilia Valdonivos' version of the story she says that she uses a hood under her veil, and her keen hair only fell down when she took it off.
In yet an official opinion in the beginning of this week confirmed the Fort Carson have received a ligerettigheds-complaint in connection with the case, where Cesilia Valdonivos was asked to remove her hijab.
Cesilia Valdonivos and the lawyer reckon with, it may take a few weeks before they evaluate how the legal approach the matter.
