This appears to be part of an effort to force the store to stop carrying alcohol altogether — which illustrates the supremacist element in Muslim demands for accommodation. Muhammad laid curses not only upon those who drank alcohol, but those who distributed it and transported it also; however, only recently have Muslims in the West begun insisting upon observance of these restrictions.
“Muslim sues Tesco for ‘making him carry beer,” by Joel Taylor for Metro.co.uk, September 28 (thanks to Twostellas):
A Muslim worker is suing Tesco for discrimination after being asked to transport beer on his forklift truck.
Mohammed Ahmed claims he was in effÂect forced from his job because managers refÂused to accept that handling alcohol offended his beliefs.
The 32-year-old, raised in Saudi Arabia, told a tribunal he had never visited a Tesco store and had no idea it sold alcohol when he took on the role.
At that point you had two choices, Mr. Ahmed: you could have quit your job and found another that did not conflict with your religious beliefs — or you could have filed suit so as to try to bend British society to the will of Islam. Your choice is interesting.
But he admitted shopping at Sainsbury’s, Lidl and Asda and seeing alcohol on sale there.
It was, ‘reasonÂable to expect him to be aware of what Tesco did’, said company lawyer Laura Canham, accusing him of giving out mixed messages by suggesting at one point he could handle Budweiser.
Yeah, I think it’s watery, too.
