The Muslims groups from the state of Illinois had some complaints.

Apparently, anyone who wears a religious head covering can leave it even for a photo ID or a driver’s license.

This will make them impossible for identifying.


Fusion news reported that the office of Illinois Secretary of State will start to send fliers in order to remind the employees from the Department of Motor Vehicle that “articles of faith” are legally allowed. The Chicago chapter of designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) complained that Muslim women also were being asked to remove head coverings for photos.

According to America’s Freedom Fighters, the flyer states: “The Secretary of State’s office recognizes and respects the increasing diversity of religions practiced by Illinois residents. Members of many religions, such as Islam and Sikhism, wear religious head coverings, also known as articles of faith.

While hats or head coverings are generally prohibited from being worn in photographs used on Illinois driver’s licenses and identification cards, customers may be photographed while wearing established religious head coverings. Photographs increase public safety. Examples of acceptable religious head coverings can be found in this flyer.”

Muslims are the people who follow the Islamic faith, and some of the females choose to cover their head. This is based on their religious belief and the Islamic injunction to dress modestly. They can either wear a full-head covering or hijab, or a simple scarf over their hair. Some of the male Muslims wear a skullcap or kufi based on religious tradition.

According to a spokesperson for Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White, the fliers were sent as a reminder to the people that requesting from the Muslims to remove the head covering is illegal.

The Chicago Tribune reported that the Muslims are one of the quickest growing and third-largest group in 2012 and things continue like this, that could change for the worse.
