US Islamic Relation

Newstoday: Lawyer Nadia Kahf's name has taken a place in history books after being appointed the first hijab-wearing Muslim Judge in the US court. As she was born in Passaic county and celebrated the moment while holding the Holy Book Quran while other fellow judges were cheering her achievement. She is not the first Muslim to be appointed to serve as a state judge, but she is the first to cover her head, which was long considered a gender-oppressive gesture by the western world. The solicitor of Syrian origin has been appointed as a judge by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. Formerly, served as head of the Council on US-Islamic Relations' New Jersey branch for the previous two decades.
