Muslim Taxi Driver Refused To Let Woman Sit In Front Seat For ‘Religious Reasons’

A Muslim taxi driver has caused outrage after he refused a woman to sit in the front seat due to “religious reasons”, several news outlets reported.

According to the report, New York taxi driver Tamsir Drammeh was accused of discriminating a mother when she tried to get into the front seat of the cab, saying that “she has to sit in the back because his religious beliefs forbid him to sit next to a woman.” But the back seat was already occupied by four passengers (her kids) when she attempted to jump on the front seat.

The family reported the incident and Drammeh was slapped with a $350 fine for discrimination by a city judge.

“His religion is not an acceptable defense in an occupation that is operated to serve the public,” the judge ruled.
