Muslim Woman in Old Brookville Says She Was Harassed Because of Her Faith


An Iranian businesswoman living in Old Brookville says she was harassed by local officials and neighbors because she is Muslim, leading her to file suit in federal court in Central Islip last week.

According to 51-year-old Farah Amid, village officials tried to block renovations of her $11.3 million estate in an attempt to make her leave the village. At the same time, neighbors harassed her by calling her “trash” and dumping dog feces on her property, she says.
