Unfortunately for this Muslim cab driver, the judge didn’t recognize Sharia Law over American law…

A Muslim New York taxi driver was fined by a court after he refused to let a woman sit next to him in the front of his cab citing ‘religious reasons’.

Tamsir Drammeh told a family of four that they would all have to sit in the back of his taxi because his Islamic beliefs forbid a woman being allowed to occupy the front passenger seat alongside him.

But a city judge didn’t buy Tamsir Drammeh’s ‘Islam’ argument and slapped the driver with a $350 fine for discrimination.
‘There’s no such rule in Islam,’ said the manager at his garage to the New York Post. ‘There’s no such thing.’

A driver at the garage added, ‘Maybe if she was drunk and wearing a skirt hiked up to here,’ as he pointed to the tops of his thighs. ‘He wouldn’t have her in the front, but only if she is alone.’

The incident happened while Drammeh, 64, was at a taxi stand on Eighth Avenue near Penn Station.

The family of four walked up to his cab and he opened the trunk to allow the customers to put their bags in.

After the husband and children ages six and 11 got into the back seat, their mother went to open the front door, but Drammeh refused to unlock it.

When asked if there was a problem, the stubborn driver simply said her husband could sit up front, but not his wife, and that she would not be welcome.

The family were having none of it and promptly got out, snapping the number of his taxi on their phone and hailed a different cab.
