A Muslim teenager in Florida ended up sitting out her soccer game this weekend after a referee objected to her head scarf.
Fifteen-year old Iman Khalil has never had a problem wearing her scarf in the two years that she's played for her team. But Saturday, a referee ruled the scarf violated game rules despite protests by parents, teammates and even opposing team players.
League officials contacted the ref during the game, telling him she wasn't breaking the rules, but he still refused to let Khalil play. [Link]
