It is interesting (and it may just be where I live) but I had a bolus of Nation of Islam families (these are Americans who usually have converted to Islam) who attempted to say that it was a religious exemption. In Texas we have no religious, only medical and conscience exemptions. I have a handful of Muslim friends from other countries who've told me that there is no broad-based prohibition in Islamic religion but may be an issue with the Imam.
