Judge Refuses To Bend To Muslim Woman's Request In Court

In Pennsylvania, a Muslim woman wanted to swear on a Quran before testifying in her custody suit against her estranged husband. Although Pennsylvania law states the witnesses must take an oath on the Christian Bible or choose to make a non-religious declaration before testifying in court.

The woman then stated that her religious rights were being violated and that the state is favoring Christianity over Islam and other religions.

Nonetheless, the judge did not allow her to swear on the Quran. Her estranged husband swore on the Bible before he took the witness stand. According to AU.org, that his wife's refusal to swear on a Bible or make a non-religious affirmation served as a form of witness intimidation.

The judge rejected the woman's statements for allowing her to swear on the Quran. The law states, "Which oath so taken by persons who conscientiously refuse to take an oath in the common form shall be deemed and taken in law to have to have the same effect as an oath taken in common form."
