(KPLR) - A St. Louis taxi driver, who says his religious rights were violated, was in court Monday. Raja Naeem is a Muslim and he wants to wear Islamic attire while working. Naeem has been a taxicab driver for 10 years and has received more than thirty tickets for refusing to follow the clothing guidelines in place by the Taxicab Commision.
The Commission requires all drivers to wear black pants and a white shirt. His license was recently revoked and he has been arrested twice.
He says it is a violation of his Constitutional Rights as an American Citizen.
