A Muslim woman has launched a religious discrimination lawsuit against a popular gun range near Kansas City, Missouri, alleging that its policy banning certain headware, including the hijab, is a “pretextual” measure meant to exclude Muslims from its services.

The lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri is backed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, which says it is the country’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, and the complaint leveled by plaintiff Rania Barakat goes beyond her own specific experience in 2020 at the shooting range to allege a broader “pattern or practice of resistance” allegedly used by the business to deny “the full and equal enjoyment by Muslims who wear the hijab.”
