Muslim American police officer sues department over Islamophobic comments
Muslim American police officer sues department over Islamophobic comments

A Muslim American police officer has taken legal action against his department over Islamophobic comments.

Kamil Warraich, a Pakistani-American police officer in Asbury Park, New Jersey, filed the lawsuit over being repeatedly called a "terrorist" and "Taliban" during his over 15-year tenure, NJ.com reported on Saturday.

His search for justice has led to his dismissal from the department.

"Mr. Warraich was a trailblazer who wanted nothing more than to serve the people of Asbury Park," David Castellani, one of Warraichís lawyers, said in a statement. "Unfortunately ... Mr. Warraich faced a hostile work environment created by people within the APPD, who did not want to see a dark-skinned police officer."

In the lawsuit, the Muslim officer also disputed multiple disciplinary charges and a failed fitness test, which made authorities fire him in 2019, despite having worked at the department since 2004.

Warraich joined other minority officers to form a new union last year after he was kept out of union activities along with other predominantly black officers.

The police officer also complained about being encouraged to use unnecessary force in minority communities.

"I only used force when it was justified and absolutely necessary," he said.

The suit also accuses city officials and the Monmouth County Prosecutorís Office of mishandling his complaints.
