Why did a court stop President Trump's ban on people entering the US from Muslim countries?

A judge in a US Federal Court in Honolulu ruled on 15 March that the revised travel ban would be viewed by a reasonable objective observer as having been “issued with a purpose to disfavour a particular religion, in spite of its stated, religiously neutral purpose". In other words it is still discriminatory against Muslims even though it has been recast from the original travel ban.
