From Mad World News: Graham Noakes visited a KFC and was refused a wet-wipe after he was told that the fast food chain was a halal-only branch, and the alcohol in the handwipes contained a substance that was banned by Islam.
Initially Noakes said he thought the refusal was a joke until the staff confirmed that the policy was in fact real:
“They told me it might offend other customers. I explained that it wouldn’t affect me. In fact – I told them I like alcohol, so it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest,” Noakes said. “When they wouldn’t give me one, I was disgusted. 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.”
KFC spokesperson said that the company began offering on halal only items back in 2010 to comply with Islam. They had been waiting on new lemon-based wipes to replace the alcohol-based ones to make sure that the stores satisfy the customers’ needs.
Spokesman for the Leicester-based Federation of Muslim Organizations, Suleman Nagdi, described the policy as bizarre:
“I know alcohol is prohibited in the Muslim community, but I don’t understand why you can’t use hand-wipes – there’s nothing wrong with it. Using alcohol doesn’t mean you’re consuming it. It seems like an unusual decision to be made. In fact, it sounds bizarre. I’ve never come across anything like this before. KFC have made a commercial decision to do this, and now the Muslim community will face backlash.”
What’s going on in England? A couple recently made the news there after they were thrown off public transportation for singing a song about a pig to their baby which offended a Muslim riding on the same bus. Political Correctness is rotting that country, and with the behavior of our own media classifying the beheading of the Oklahoma woman as“workplace violence,” you can bet that before too long alcohol-based wet wipes and the Pepa Pig theme song will be banned here too!
