Muslim wins damages in Sweden....

Her government employer did not want her to wear a head scarf.....
She was forced from work because of wearing a headscarf, now a Muslim woman has won 5,400 US dollars in damages from her former employer - the local authority. The Equality Ombudsman (diskrimineringsombudsmannen) decided on Monday that these damages were suitable to compensate the woman for the insult and injury that the local authority had caused her.

It started in 2007, when the woman was told that she must stop working at a café in Skövde, in south central Sweden, unless she stopped wearing her head scarf. Magnus Jacobson of the Equality Ombudsman says that it is specially important that local government employers do not discriminate against workers on ground of their religion.
