Mugshot Sans Headscarf? Not When You're a Muslim!


BOULDER, Colo. (AP) ― A Muslim woman who refused to remove her headscarf for a Boulder County jail booking photo has been told she'll have to explain her refusal to a judge.

Maria Hardman, 19, of Boulder, who says she converted to Islam three years ago, pleaded guilty to an alcohol violation and was sentenced to two days in jail plus community service.

She told the Boulder Daily Camera on Friday that removing her headscarf for the photo would violate her beliefs because the Quran calls for Muslim women to wear the scarf except in the company of close family.

A police report said Hardman's blood-alcohol level was 0.19, more than twice the legal limit, after she crashed her motor-scooter in August.

Alcohol consumption is generally considered to be banned by Islam. Hardman said she drank punch provided at a party without knowing it contained alcohol. She said she left after she found out.

First of all, BULLSHIT! She couldn't smell alcohol spiked punch?!? She drank enough to get wasted and then decided to drive a car?!? HAHAHAHAHAAA!!!

Next... So this girl converted at 16? She read enough of the Koran to make her want to convert to Islam, wear a gorram headscarf, yet missed the part that states alcohol is forbidden?!? And SHE'S DRINKING UNDERAGED ANY DAMNED WAY!!!

Pious comments from CAIR in 3...2...1...

I swear, my head is going to explode...

Alright. Gonna have to call BS on this young lady.

I agree with your assessment. At 16 years old, she converts to Islam. OK. In that three year period did she not ever read the parts of the Quaran that forbid the consumption of alcohol? Is she so naive she couldn't tell something was happening to her and she needed to call a family member to come get her? What about the parts of the Quaran that say she isn't supposed to be out in public without a close male relative anyway?

I'm sorry but her excuse smells like something that came out the North end of a South facing mule. "Oh Allah! I got caught doing something wrong so now I'm going to use religion to try and get out of it." Pathetic.

She couldn't call a family member to come get her...if they converted they would have stoned her!

This is a gross estimation but she would have to drink about 5 - 6 drinks to get to a .19 (assuming she is about 100 - 120 pounds, a good average for a 19 year old female).

Considering this is based on 1 ounce of alcohol per drink, it would be near impossible to not know she was drinking alcohol.

This feeds into one of my pet peeves. At least here in Michigan we have an awful lot of our liquor stores and video stores that rent adult videos owned by Muslims. Either this is hypocrisy on steroids or it is an intentional attempt to undermine US society.

In order to show deference to Muslim beliefs and sharia law, I believe we should discount this girl's testimony unless a man comes forward to corroborate it.

That is, if he arrives before we stone her to death.

WM: I couldn't agree more. This is a person that is an impressionable youngster who thinks that converting to Islam is fashionable and knows next to nothing about the brass tacks of the so-called ROP.

Batman: HA! Yes!

Chuck: Exactly. If she was drinking a higher proof she damn well would have tasted it no matter what it was masked by. If not, she would have had to have drank a TON to get so inebriated, even considering she might not be able to hold her alcohol well.

As for the Islamic liquor stores... Why am I not surprised?!?

Beamish: What a beautifully crafted comment! I LOVE IT! A taste of her own medicine, and all...

Angel: Get the duct tape.
