(KTVI) - A judge heard arguments Monday on whether a Muslim taxicab driver can wear Islamic attire while working. Raja Naeem is suing the St. Louis Taxicab Commission, claiming it violated his religious rights.

During his ten years of driving a cab, he has received more than 30 tickets for refusing to following the commission's clothing guidelines which requires all drivers to wear black pants and a white shirt.

His license was recently revoked by the commission. He was even arrested twice.

Naeem says it's a constitutional rights violation as an American citizen.
