Imam Rashi is an expert on Islam, and has a wide range of knowledge on a number of different topics. Some of these topics include gender discrimination in hiring practices, women in the restaurant industry, and discriminatory undergarments. He is also a popular speaker on topics such as Islam and women's rights.
A Connecticut private school teacher caught making the tiniest of gestures at his female students. He was on leave at the time but an undercover recording has led to an investigation. The video has not been made public but local police say they have seen it. This has led to one of the biggest uproars in Greenwich.
One of the bigger questions is whether or not the investigation will result in a prosecution. The Academy has not responded to a query from the Daily Voice. There is no word on whether or not a charge of sexual misconduct is being considered. But a spokesperson, Michelle Levi, said the academy is "committed to ensuring that our students are provided with a safe and supportive environment in which to learn and grow." She also said she "was not aware of any allegations that have been brought against Dr. Rasti."
While there is no word on what the investigation is currently looking into, the media reports that the investigation is still ongoing. In the meantime, Rasti has taken a well-deserved leave of absence. It's hard to blame the former teacher on his recent mishap but it is worth remembering that he taught undergraduate and graduate classes for more than a decade before deciding on a career change.
Comments made about female students' undergarments
A new undercover video from Project Veritas shows an English teacher at a Connecticut private school making a few claims that are a bit out there. Among these is the claim that a student's undergarment was the best piece of sports equipment. It was also the first time a school had caught a teacher making the claim. The video has already received more than 40,000 views on YouTube.
Despite its claims to the contrary, the underwear aficionado can't seem to make it out of the school building without a female teacher popping in to check her undergarments. Although some schools have banned the use of undergarments for P.E., many elementary schools don't allow students to wear them during class. Some high schools have opted to change the rules. In an attempt to curb underwear visibility, 13 schools have altered the colors of their uniforms. Other elementary schools have gone as far as not allowing students to wear underwear at all.
Comments made about discriminatory hiring practices
Discrimination during the hiring process is unlawful. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 guarantees protection from discrimination based on race, national origin, and sex. However, employers can still use unfair hiring practices to give certain groups of applicants a slight advantage. In some cases, the practice doesn't rise to the level of discrimination, but it can be a major problem for companies looking to create a more diverse workplace.
A video released Thursday by the non-profit investigative group Project Veritas appears to show a middle school teacher making sexually explicit remarks about students. This incident was followed by an investigation by the state attorney general.
The video has already received more than 40,000 views on YouTube, according to project veritas. In addition, a division head of the Westport private school called parents on Friday to discuss the case. As a result of the investigation, the former English teacher was put on administrative leave.
Ultimately, the school decided to fire the former teacher. During the interview, Iman Rasti allegedly made a number of comments that were viewed as a retaliatory reaction to the administration's decision to hire a different teacher. These comments, the court found, were not just stray remarks. They were proof of an intent to discriminate.
Comments made about a woman in a restaurant
If you were a student at Greens Farms Academy (GFA) in Westport, Connecticut, you may have heard about Dr Imam Rasti and the comments he made about a woman in a restaurant. This has been reported to be a very serious issue in the local community.
After learning about the video on Thursday, the school immediately put Rasti on administrative leave. The school administrators are now investigating his actions. According to a source close to the matter, the school is contacting families later Friday.
Rasti, who is an English teacher, was previously dean of the seventh grade and director of the writing center at GFA. He also has experience in teaching middle and high school students.
During an interview with Project Veritas, he allegedly stated that he fantasized about young female students. In addition, he said he had sex with a number of students. These sex fantasies would get him in trouble at work, he claimed.
