Judge Orders Two Muslim Women Back On Ballot After BOE Removed Them For Using Fake Names

A Queens Supreme Court Judge ordered that two muslim Bangladeshi women who used fake names to run for office, be put back on the ballot.

“Mary” Jobaida and “Moumita” Ahmed were removed from the ballot by the Board of Elections after it was revealed the women used fake names when filing to run for office.

After being removed from the ballot, the women claimed they used their nicknames and immediately screamed racism. Along with their lawyer, Ali Najmi, they challenged the decision in court. The women won in court and their names will be on the June 23 primary election ballot.

Mary, whose real name is Meherunnisa, seeks to unseat state Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan (D-Long Island City), and Moumita Ahmed, whose real name is Atqiya, is running for Democratic district leader in Assembly District 31.
