“Police were called over fears of a possible riot when some 30 or 40 people became angry when told of a park policy banning them from wearing traditional muslim headgear.” VIDEO COVERAGE HERE.
A theme park was forced to shut its gates to visitors when a mass brawl broke out after Muslim women were banned from rides unless they removed their headscarves.
Two park rangers were injured and 15 people, including three women, were arrested in the scuffle at Rye Playland in New York yesterday. They have since been charged with disorderly conduct and assault.
Muslim visitors involved in the fight accused police of brutality and claimed they were treated ‘like animals’. One said: ‘It’s clear, this all happened because we’re Muslim.’
