Muslim NYPD Officer Refuses to Shave Beard, Sues When Suspended

The legal jihad. via: Muslim NYPD officer sues after being suspended for refusing to shave his beard | Daily Mail Online

A Muslim New York Police Department officer was suspended without pay and escorted out of police headquarters for refusing to shave his beard which he said he grew for religious reasons.

Officer Masood Syed, who said he has maintained about half-to-one-inch beard (13-25mm) for most of his 10-year career, has sued the department saying its no-beard policy is unconstitutional.

The department says it bans beards as a safety measure so gas masks fit tightly across faces, but allows beards for religious reasons up to one millimeter in length.

On Wednesday during an emergency hearing, a federal judge ordered the city to continue paying Syed his salary and benefits.

U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel criticized the city repeatedly before finding it was probable Officer Syed would succeed, issuing a temporary restraining order that will remain in place until a July 8 hearing.

On July 8, another judge will consider whether Syed should be allowed to work until the matter is resolved.

The judge, who is bearded, said one millimeter of hair exists when a man is unshaven for a day or two. He said it seemed the policy is enforced haphazardly.

‘I am very relieved,’ Syed said following the hearing, as he celebrated his 32nd birthday with a half dozen fellow officers supporting him in the Manhattan court. 

Syed said on Tuesday, two uniformed supervisors escorted him from Manhattan NYPD headquarters where he works as a law clerk to administrative judges, sometimes preparing legal documents for the police commissioner about disciplinary issues.

His attorney, Joshua Moskovitz, said the department also took Syed’s shield and weapon before he was ‘escorted out in front of his friends and colleagues.’

‘It was extremely humiliating,’ Syed said. ‘I felt insulted, frankly.’


Does this Muslim look humiliated or does he look like the cat who ate the canary?


The NYPD was infiltrated long ago and shaken down by terror-linked CAIR and has a separate Muslim Society!

NYPD Muslim Officers Society links from its website to all the major Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the United States

Update: While he awaits his big payday from taxpayers, Muslim NYPD officer reinstated as department reviews its beard policy.

  1. Well, it’s one more win for the “We will destroy you from within” isn’t it???

  2. This POS doesn’t just need to be humiliated–HE NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!!! Just look at the smug “my-shtt-don’t-stink” smirk!!!! It’s all about continually wiping 9/11 in our faces–and let’s not even assume that his “friends” in higher places (from the muzzlum bro’s) are not involved in this! THEY ARE PAYING HIS LAWYERS–CARTE BLANCHE!!! ‘Scuze me while I become violently ill!!!!! Let’s hope and pray that the judge who hears this case will give him his walking papers! Guaranteed, if a Christian police officer insisted on wearing a visible Cross on his uniform, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY WOULD DO TO HIM!!!!!

  3. I missed the part of the Constitution that addresses hair styles on the job.

    No matter, there’s an easy fix. Hold bi-weekly tear gas drills until he shaves or quits. Also, a blanket party could be held just for him…substituting soap for rusty scissors and hot wax.

    • @Space Kraken. “Tear gas drills”, there ya go! Actually I was thinking more along the lines of mustard gas or chlorine gas! I like your idea better–less crap to clean up! Funny how great minds think alike!!!
