A Muslim cashier at a Tesco store refused to serve a customer buying ham and wine because he said it was Ramadan. The cashier told Julie Cottle he would not touch the items as they are forbidden by Islam and said she should use the self-service tills instead.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Michael & Paris) When Miss Cottle, 43, from Neasden, north-west London, complained to the manager, he backed the worker’s right to refuse to serve her because it was the holy month of Ramadan and he was fasting. But Tesco has now apologized for Monday’s incident and said the worker had been ‘spoken to.’ (Why wasn’t he fired?)
Miss Cottle, a mother of three, said she went to a Tesco Express to get two packets of ham for her children’s lunches. She also had three bottles of white wine among her shopping.
Miss Cottle said her treatment left her furious. ‘He pointed at the ham and wine in my basket and said “I can’t serve you that because I’m fasting”,’ she said. ‘When I told him he should be serving customers not turning them away he still refused, telling me to go to the self-service. ‘I know he has his beliefs – I’m a Christian myself – but he should be able to do his job properly. I’m disgusted. If he is refusing to do his job he shouldn’t be there.’
‘I started shouting and he went to the back of the shop. I asked to see the manager. He was a temporary manager and he said I had to use the self-service. ‘I was furious so when I got home I rang Tesco customer service to complain. ‘All they said was “that does not sound right but if it is ok with the manager that’s ok”.’
During Ramadan Muslims go without food and drink between dawn and dusk. The devout also refrain from smoking, swearing, arguing, listening to music and having sex to demonstrate their faith. Following the yearly ritual is considered as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. (Who the hell cares?)
A TEENAGER has been arrested after allegedly posting a ‘racist’ (What ‘race’ is Islam?) threat against a proposed new mega-mosque eyesore and Islamic Indoctrination Center on Facebook.
Leon Richmond, arrested for a thought crime in the Islamic Republic of Britain
Leon Richmond, aged 18, from Smithills, is alleged to have made an “offensive” comment about the proposed new mosque in Blackburn Road, Astley Bridge, on a Facebook page. He has been bailed by police, who have warned that more arrests will follow. (Ewwww, the islamofascist UK thought police are going to be very busy)
The proposed mega mosque, which was given approval by Bolton Council members earlier this month, will be built on a plot of land off Canning Street.
The mosquetrosity in question
Det Insp Charlotte Cadden, from Bolton North Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of making racial threats to cause criminal damage. “This is the first of a number of arrests we will be making.
“People seem to think they can make racially (What ‘race’ is islam?) offensive comments online with impunity but they can’t because it’s offensive and people are rightly concerned. “If you have put something like that online I would advise you to remove it. “We have captured some of the comments already and we are prioritizing the most serious ones. (That’s right, ignore all the young white girls being sexually abused and turned into prostitutes by muslim men because you have to go after anti-islam commenters)
“The arrest made by (Nazi) police is a warning to people.
“All people have a right to a lawful protest if they are unhappy about something but this has far overstepped the mark and turned into racial verbal abuse and threats that have caused a lot concern and upset in all communities. (Crap! It only upsets the muslim enemy within)
