Muslim woman feels discriminated after a worker at Family Dollar told her to remove her Niqab or leave

What do you think? A Muslim woman from Indiana complained and felt offended while entering a store and hearing the voice of the worker saying: Either remove the Niqab, or get out of my store. I understand that people have different cultures but from my point of view there's nothing even close to a discrimination, it's only a security measure. It's a common knowledge that anything that covers your face or not visible to the security cameras, is not permitted. I mean it's a security case, what if she actually was a robber? I'd understand her complains and angers if the owner expressed himself clearly like "I don't accept Muslims in my store" but come on it's just a security safeness. If you don't accept the laws, why come to America? By the way, what are your opinions on this one? Here i'll provide the link for you if you want to read the full story.

America, as I see it, is made from people from many races and many cultures. Maybe laws should change. Perhaps it is better to ask for an ID than to ask someone to go against her culture and religion.
