Chicken eaters, at KFC restaurants designated as “Halal-only” locations in Britain, are being denied wet hand wipes as they apparently violate Sharia Islamic Law because they contain alcohol, which Muslims are not permitted to ingest. So, are they saying that Muslims might be tempted to eat the handwipes?
ThisIsEngland(h/t MZ) Graham Noakes, 41, said he was astonished when staff at the fast food chain’s outlet in St George’s retail park refused to give him a hand-wipe because it was against its Halal policy.
Staff said this was because the wipes are soaked in an alcohol-infused liquid. Alcohol is forbidden in the Muslim Holy book, the Quran. Graham said: “They told me I might offend other customers.”
The 41-year-old added: ‘I’ve never experienced anything like this before, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
‘Why shouldn’t I be allowed a wipe for my hands? They use wipes in hospital, what happens when we start being told we can’t have wipes there? I just can’t understand it.’
A KFC spokesman said the company had been running a halal trial since 2010, in “areas where there has been demand from our customers”, such as the restaurant in St George’s Retail Park. Via The UK Times.
This report is in England, where there are also stories of Muslim nurses not cleaning as much as they should in hospitals for this same reason. There is a serious danger of infection to hospital patients, particularly the weak and the elderly, but the muslim nurses refuse to wash properly.
And, as demographic trends continue throughout the Western world, it won’t be long until we face this type of insanity in America too. (Not to worry, it’s already here)
