Haram; worthy of lawsuit
His job (caterer) may bring him into contact with pork products. According to his lawyer, “They [UK dhimmis] failed to accommodate him as they had a duty to do under the law.” Which law, British or sharia? Interesting when the two converge: British law appeasing Islam, sharia law demanding it.
“Caterer sues police over sausages,” from the BBC, November 2 :
A Muslim catering manager has accused the Metropolitan Police of religious discrimination as he was told he may have to handle sausages and bacon.
Hasanali Khoja was told he would be expected to handle pork products at his new job at the Empress State Building in Earls Court, west London.
His lawyer said Mr Khoja was excused from pork meat in his previous job at Hendon Police College in north London.
An informal agreement was reached with the force but he wants it formalised.
After all, a dhimmi’s word is not enough; something more binding is required.
An employment tribunal in Watford will consider his claim in May 2009.
A Metropolitan Police (Met) spokesman said it was defending a claim of religious discrimination brought against it at an employment tribunal.
Islam forbids the consumption of pork meat or products containing pork.
Islam also forbids Muslims from voluntarily living and intermingling with infidels: why does this “pious” Muslim man choose to live in infidel Britain, as opposed to any Muslim country where he wouldn’t need to worry about pork products?
Mr Khoja, a senior catering manager, has been working with the Met since 2005 and filed the claim in the tribunal last year.
He said: “Obviously nobody in my situation would be happy. Pork handling is the issue.”
His lawyer Khalid Sofi said: “The claim is about his religious beliefs. They failed to accommodate him as they had a duty to do under the law.
“He would have had to do certain things and bacon would have been involved.”
Mr Sofi said the Met reached an informal agreement with his client in June to excuse him from handling pork products after he took special leave from his job.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “A catering manager is bringing employment tribunal proceedings against the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) alleging religious belief discrimination.
“The MPS is defending the claim.”
