Outraged council chiefs have demanded British-style toilets are used instead of Middle East-style squat holes. Town leaders in Rochdale moved into action after the Daily Star sparked a national outcry by revealing the plans.
Yesterday, managers at the Rochdale Exchange mall were set to cave in to pressure and abandon the scheme as a source said: “The decision is being reconsidered.”
Labour councillor Farooq Ahmed said: “I have been inundated with calls saying this paints the wrong picture of the Muslim community. “I don’t know of any Asian or Muslim families with these toilets.”
The pans were first installed after Exchange Centre management attended a “cultural” training course with community activist Ghulam Rasul Shahzad. UK DAILY STAR
