Zahra Hassan, a community outreach coordinator for the Minneapolis nonprofit Fairview Health Services, works to make swim opportunities available to Muslim girls and women as a matter of health. One day a week, her group offers free swimming lessons at the University of Minnesota to Muslim girls and women, with no men allowed.
“It makes it easier for the community to learn when they know that they can be in a pool where they don’t have to worry about wearing a scarf,” she said. “They can wear whatever they want in the pool, as long as the windows are covered, we have a female instructor, a female lifeguard. It’s great.”
And taxpayer-funded MPR shills for Islam and sharia.
What MPR doesn’t tell readers is that the windows are papered over because Muslim women live under the threat of death from Muslim men…even in America.
