Muslim researchers sue Texas A&M for religious discrimination

Two former Texas A&M University researchers allege colleagues threw animal feces and urine on their prayer rug and routinely mocked and mistreated them because they are Muslims from Iraq, according to a federal lawsuit.
  • "The folks at A&M treated them horribly because they looked different, ate different food and spoke differently and because they are from Iraq and Muslim," the couple's lawyer, Shane McClelland, was quoted as saying in Friday's online editions of the Houston Chronicle.
