Ibrahima Kaba, a Muslim former employee of Burke's who was allegedly fired for leaving work to attend Friday prayers, is suing the chef and restaurateur for religious discrimination at four of his New York restaurants. The suit claims: "Muslim employees are obligated to ignore their religious requirements due to the fear of retaliation and termination from the management." [NYP]
