TB Test Info Needed

I am presently seeking information from Muslims (prisoners and civilians), who oppose taking the TB skin test on religious grounds because it violates their Islamic beliefs by having the serum injected into the skin. I am seeking affidavits, articles, legal articles (either American or Islamic law), literature and other references to the TB test being objectionable on religious grounds which are recognized by prison officials. People of other religious denominations (Christians, Jews, Rastafarians, etc.) are also encouraged to submit their input.

I have filed suit in federal court on the New York DOC's practice of requiring the TB skin test. During discovery I came across a document which allowed prisoners to take a chest X-Ray in lieu of a the skin test. I need support from brothers and sisters to show that although prison officials established the chest X-Ray alternative to deal with prisoners religious objections to the skin test, as a matter of practice they do not extend the X-Ray to religious prisoners.

In replyinge, please send your materials of support to:
