Wakeelah Salaam, at home in Elizabeth, NJ, yesterday says a mall guard “got in my face” over her traditional niqab
“I felt like he was going to do something. I didn’t feel safe in the mall.”
Salaam said she felt like a “victim” and was embarrassed in front of her boys, ages 5 and 12.
The mall later issued an apology and said the guard had been sent to diversity training.
