Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA Celebrates Supreme Court’s Ruling on Hijab in the Workplace

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of Samantha Elauf, an American Muslim woman who wears a hijab and was denied a job at Abercrombie & Fitch when she was 17. Elauf claimed the company did not offer her a job because her religious identity violates Abercrombie’s “look policy.”

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA welcomed the United States Supreme Court ruling in favor of Samantha Elauf in her religious discrimination suit against retailer Abercrombie & Fitch.

“This ruling aligns with American values of freedom of religion and practice,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, Senior Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “It is critical to the success of our diverse nation that companies learn from this and adapt their policies to work in the 21st century.”
