MUSLIM WOMAN SUES MTA & NYPD FOR "BERATING HER FOR WEARING RELIGIOUS GARB"

BOLKA?
A Muslim woman claims she’s being booted off city buses because of the way she dresses.
Maria Louis, of Hollis, Queens, says she has twice been kicked off buses by MTA and NYPD personnel — the agencies she’s suing in Brookyn federal court — after people berated her for her religious garb.

Her clothing, which she calls a “bolka,” is a “long, flowing black garment that covers her completely — including a mesh section over her eyes that allows her to see,” the suit says.
