What a surprise, more muslim whining for preferential treatment. Recall my earlier post about supermarket chain Tesco, which British muslims are petitioning to deny their right to sell alcohol, in a neighborhood heavily populated with muslims. This guy is obviously a DEE DEE DEE as he did not research the place of employment he chose to apply to. And common sense should tell anyone that a grocery store will stock alcohol on its shelves (beer, wine, wine coolers).
Devout Muslim sues Tesco for making him carry alcohol
A Muslim who claims he did not know Tesco sold alcohol is suing the store for religious discrimination after having to carry crates of drink as part of his job.
Forklift truck driver Mohammed Ahmed, 32, worked in a distribution depot for eight months before quitting ‘in protest’, an employment tribunal heard.
He claims he was forced to leave because handling beer, spirits and wine is against his strict Islamic beliefs and that he was victimised when he asked the company to give him another role.
Mr Ahmed, who was raised in Saudi Arabia, told the tribunal he had no idea his job entailed handling alcohol when he started work last September at the depot in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
When he realised it did, he asked to be found different work but alleges that one of his supervisors told him: ‘You do the job or go home.’
Mr Ahmed also claimed his line manager was ‘aggressive’ towards him and another supervisor angrily told him: ‘Do not take the p***.’
The problem allegedly worsened in November and December when extra alcohol arrived at the warehouse in readiness for Christmas, the tribunal in Birmingham heard.
Mr Ahmed claimed he eventually lodged an official grievance with the company in February and was ‘victimised and harassed’ as a result.
Victimized and harrassed? Was he kidnapped and then decapitated? Did someone run up to him shouting as they detonated their bomb vest? NOPE. They simply told him what we should tell every single muslim in the US who complains about having to handle pork or alcohol in American retail stores; Do the job, or go home.
The tribunal heard that Tesco has now ensured its induction process makes clear that handling alcohol is part of the job.
But Laura Canham, the company’s solicitor, said it was still unrealistic for Mr Ahmed to say he had no idea what his duties would be.
Mr Ahmed claimed he had never visited a Tesco store and was not aware the company sold alcohol. He admitted, however, having shopped in Sainsbury’s, Lidl and Asda, and noticing alcohol was on sale there.
Miss Canham said: ‘He was advised at the outset what the job would entail. At no stage did he raise the fact he could not handle alcohol.’
The tribunal was told Mr Ahmed also gave out ‘mixed messages’, at one stage suggesting he was allowed to handle Budweiser beer.
What’s that? He can handle Budweiser, but not other alcohol products? What happened, did some cleric from some ass backwards country proclaim that Budweiser is halal? This guy is so full of crap I can smell him from my desk in the middle east! I hope the company tells him to stick it where moon-god allah’s light don’t shine.
