Some Muslims are raising questions about the credibility of a lawsuit filed by a Muslim woman against a Wayne County judge alleging he forced her to remove her headscarf.
Majed Moughni, a Dearborn attorney who is Muslim, claims that the woman who filed the lawsuit was not wearing an Islamic headscarf -- often called a hijab -- but rather a fashionable garment. And Moughni notes that the woman didn't protest when the judge asked her to remove it.
In flyers he said were distributed this week in metro Detroit, Moughni defended Judge Bill Callahan of Wayne County Circuit Court and criticized the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations
But CAIR and the woman's attorney, Nabih Ayad, said Friday that Moughni is a lone wolf who has no community support and no authority to judge Islamic dress.
