Oklahoma City (US), Feb 18, A US Army reservist who was asked to leave a gun range in Oklahoma after identifying himself as a Muslim is suing the owners in federal court, pushing back against what he says is a rise in anti-Islamic sentiment across the country.
Attorneys for Raja'ee Fatihah filed the lawsuit today in US District Court against the owners of Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gun Range in the town of Oktaha. A sign on the business declared the range a "Muslim-free" establishment.
Fatihah's lawyer Brady Henderson says similar signs have been placed at businesses in Florida, Arkansas, Kentucky and New York. The Oklahoma store owner's attorney, Robert Muise, says Fatihah was denied service because he was belligerent, not because of his religion.
