The Oklahoma chapter of CAIR thanked the state’s Department of Public Safety for allowing a Muslim driver to take her driver’s license photograph while wearing a headscarf or hijab. The group said that the Muslim driver attempted to renew hew license in September, but was told that she needed to pull her scarf back past her hairline. Following intervention by CAIR-OK, the director of the DPS’s Driver’s License Examining Division offered to take the photograph with her scarf, and will institute a diversity training program for local staff.
