ANAHEIM — A Muslim woman who is fighting for the right to wear her hijab to work says Disney’s replacement headress is “offensive.” Imane Boudlal, 26, who is a hostess at the Storyteller’s Restaurant in Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel, says she is not allowed to wear the head scarf while at work and has been sent home seven times times — without pay.
Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said Disney has a policy not to discriminate and is trying to work out a compromise. Disney has offered Boudlal a hat to wear on top of a bonnet in place of her own white headscarf but Boudlal says the new uniform does not meet her religious needs and says the hat is embarrassing, especially because she would be the only employee forced to wear it.

There is no Islam in the Magic Kingdom, just as there is no other religion there. That’s what makes it “magic”. It’s supposed to be UNREAL. And yet, as is the custom of Islam in the West, they demand special privileges from their would-be dhimmis not granted to others. Ever bolder by the day, the Ropers are making their intentions perfectly clear– they aren’t here to adapt, they’re here to culturally colonize.
