Even though I agree with you on the reality of the Muslim or Any faith at all for that matter, it doesn't matter what we think. He believes in it and is living by it. That's a right for all Canadians. It just so happens the Muslim faith is very controlling and it affects his work. He denied service based on his faith not letting him touch a stranger of a woman's hair. Not because she wanted a "man's" haircut. He's not discriminating against her here and that's the key point.
