KFC is one of the most popular all-American fast food chains in the world, but they just did something despicable to submit to Muslims in a pathetic attempt to achieve political correctness.
According to Arabian Business, a staffer at a KFC in the UK refused to give customers alcohol hand wipes out of fear that they might “offend Muslims.” The restaurant where this occurred is one of the 100 in the UK that is trialling halal chicken as they try to appease Muslims.
Unfortunately for KFC, their latest move backfired as Muslim leaders called banning alcohol hand wipes “bizarre.” They also chastised KFC, saying that well-meaning decisions like this can be harmful because it makes it look like Muslims are making “ridiculous” demands.
“They have made a mountain out of a molehill,” said Oxford Islamic Information Centre director Dr Sheik Howjat Ramzy, adding that Muslims have been using alcohol for hygiene and medicine for hundreds of years.
“There is no problem as long as we don’t drink it: if it is for medicine it is no problem, if it is a perfume it is no problem and if it is for hygiene that is no problem,” he continued. “Scholars are also debating consumption [of alcohol]; some say that as long as you don’t get drunk that’s okay.”
“Sometimes the intention is sincere but they do need to understand the repercussions of this upon the community,” added Federation of Muslim Organizations spokesman Suleman Nagdi. “We have all the bigots coming out and saying ‘there you go again, the Muslims are demanding something’ when it is not the case that we are demanding anything.
“It is ridiculous to suggest that this is some kind of demand from the Muslim community,” Nagdi concluded.
Eventually, KFC was forced to apologize to their customers, claiming that they had not ordered the hand wipes ban.
“Our alcohol-based hand wipes are approved for use in all our restaurants, including those who are part of the halal trial,” KFC said in a statement. “There was a misunderstanding at the store in question, but the wipes are now being used again.”
Nice try, KFC, but even Muslims are sick of your PC nonsense!
