ASSIMILATE OR GET THE HELL OUT.....New Brighton Muslim workers claim religious discr

Recommended Posts


Asalaama Calaykum Solers,


I was borrowsing online, and I came across this article on startribune, that is a daily newspaper for Minneapolis/St.paul residents in Minnesota.


after reading the article, I was just curious to read the comments posted by some readers,

and Oh my Allah! do they have naceeybkii aduunka for us and our deen too or what? So I just felt like sharing with some of you who may think there is not hatred towards our deen from these kufars

this is a wake up call for all of us....

A group of Muslim workers allege they were fired by a New Brighton tortilla factory for refusing to wear uniforms that they say were immodest by Islamic standards.


Six Somali women claim they were ordered by a manager to wear pants and shirts to work instead of their traditional Islamic clothing of loose-fitting skirts and scarves, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a civil liberties group that is representing the women.


The women have filed a religious discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.


"For these women, wearing tight-fitting pants is like being naked," said Valerie Shirley, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota chapter of CAIR. "It's simply not an option."


CAIR issued a press release calling on Mission Foods to reinstate the women in their jobs. However, the group declined to disclose the names of the women and would not make them available for interviews Tuesday.


Gruma Corp., the Irving, Texas-based parent company of Mission Foods, released a written statement Tuesday denying that any employees were terminated or disciplined at the New Brighton plant. However, the company made clear the six women have been relieved of their responsibilities for the time being, and may ultimately lose their jobs if they don't wear uniforms.


"Should these employees choose to adhere to the current Mission Foods uniform policy, they may return to their positions with the company," the company statement said. "However, these positions will need to be filled as soon as possible and cannot be held indefinitely."


A company spokeswoman said she could not provide photographs of the uniforms.



Should we embrace vaginal mutilation as well?


It's easy for ridiculous cultures to hide behind the word "religion". The reality of Somolian culture is very sickening. I don't feel obligated to respect their culture or their people and I don't have to. If you'd like to know more, please visit:

assimilate or get the hell out.......

People come to the US because the believe they can make a better life. That is fine with me...but you have to assimilate to the American way of life...not the other way around. If you encounter people who dislike you and your's because we are tired of having them rammed down our throats and forcing us to assimilate to you. Assimilate or get out and go back to where you can practice all your beliefs and ways of living like you have always done!! You are wasting our money with all these darn law suits etc.



Get Out

These Muslim chicks can get their smelly stuff and move back to the Middle East if they don't like it. If they don't want to conform to the rules and requirements of their employer they can get new jobs. It's not like some tortilla maker is paying them much more than Mickey D's anyway. There are hundreds of jobs like these. Find a company that allows Muslim junk or get out of the country. We don't want you here



Mission Foods, a New Brighton tortilla maker, is accused of religious intolerance for requiring six Muslim workers to wear uniforms that include pants they say are too revealing.

If part of your job is dealing with food than you need to wear the uniform deemed appropriate for this job. If you have any complaints or … read more qualms you need to find a new job.


if you would like to respond to any of the comments about this article go to and look for the article named
