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

full story....

WTF everyone knows Tesco sells alcohol.

I thought it was just drinking it that was the problem?
#2
I'd say the guy was daft had Tesco not refused to offer him another position within the company, with adjusted pay of course.

Obviously if there was no other opening I'd fire him as he's not fit for the job.

Technically he was only handling cardboard or glass...it's becoming a litigious society where some people would rather sue than work! The thing is that we are the ones that indirectly pay for it because the companies just put their prices up, whether goods or insurance - or both!

Can you sue websites for RSI? :o)

its just silly. i didnt know they could go near it.

i have no problem with muslim etc. but least live by our rules. i wouldnt go to live in a country prodomitaly muslim and say that im offended that they show no flesh. and i would happily not wear revealing clothes as it would offend etc.

surely he must come close to alchol in everyday life, regardless of his job?

im confused by this and if he gets away with sueing then its an all new low for britain. people are racist cos people like this and our stoopid system that allows it. they try to discourage rasism but end up making it all the more prominent. its not fair on the people who just want to get on with there life and cultures without winding up others.

This is now getting totally ridiculous !! whatever next ?
I cannot type what I am thinking as it will only be deleted ..... & I am far from being a racist

oh so true.

du know it actually makes me feel sorry for all the others that are hear, working there buts off, getting on with their life, religion, and culture without kicking up a fuss, cos someone sticks a union flag up or someone has a crink near them, and all the other **** you hear. cos these people are the ones that suffer at the hands of rasism, that is fuelled by people like this man and the stoopid PC government that allows it. :x

Its not the race or religion a person follows or part of but its the individuals who abuse and misinterpret their rules and laws for their own benefits! I feel that this would just be the tip of the iceberg if he gets his own way and for that reason I will be emigrating ASAP!

#22
Someone will be round shortly to accuse us of being racist, no worries there.
#23
I suppose he wanted the month off for ramadan as he couldnt handle food either.

or did he just work after dark and stack toilet rolls ?

what about that muslim guy who opened up a pub (Google this as I can't remember who, what and where)? He himself is a devout muslim but he opened up a pub selling all kinds of alcohol!

I sense a hint of sarcasm! :whistling:

Being Chinese myself I eat nearly everything and drink nearly anything! We get d--ked over in many things but we just take it with a pinch of salt! We don't go round suing people left, right and centre!

Besides, we're gonna rule the world in a few decades time (if not sooner)! I'd start acting friendly towards us if I wwas the world! :p:p

How many local stores (most of which sell alcohol) are owned by members of the muslim community. This is the type of OTT attitude, purveyed in the name of religion that causes race tension.

I would suggest that the head guy of his local Mosque have a quiet word in his ear and tell him to stop being such a pillock!

my thoughts exactly. but whats awful is that its not all of them, and they ruin it for everyone else. and our government let them. our laws, our rules. just as they do. if i wore a bikini top in some of these countries, id be stoned to death and yet they sue over stuff like this and the most offensive thing of all, stop us displaying OUR FLAG cos it OFFENDS them. They should be displaying our flag for us, thanking us for allowing them into the counrty.

obvioulsy they should be aloud to practise there religion and cultures, of course they should but they should stop us from living the way we wish. and punishing US for their religion. there are ample jobs ut there, and the supervisor in the story is right surely. if they dont or cant do the job, go and get a different job. his job description wasnt chaged so they did no wrong IMO

ive always thought that, china town been in london for like ever and you never here of a hint of stuff like this. seems to me the chinease people here in england get on with there lives and cause no troubles to thers, british seem to (on the whole) respect chinease, and vice versa.

thats what i dont understand, why cant we all just live along side eachother

yeah im a women and i still find "derogative" jokes about women funny. a joke is a joke in my eyes. i couldnt care less if they imply women are thick, or useless as long as they clever and witty.

but why would if offend anyone :| its not personal ...... its a "cant think of word" statement .......

e.g. its a joke at a category e.g. blondes, gays ....

a joke is a joke but slowly our traditions & our fun are slowly being withdrawn by political correctness ......

we won't be able to buy meat soon & alcohol will be all alcohol free :| ......... its so sad...... we are being told & driven to live the lives of others

I think some folks are reading faar too much into this particular story, what I'm getting from it is that this guy is just a lazy sod. As an ex-forklift driver i can imagine the alcohol pallets needing a lot more care and attention than say pallet loads of cornflakes and I'm sure the alcohol comes in a separate delivery than the rest of the stuff.
He's decided he doesn't want to work it, uses this lame excuse - falls out with his work colleagues (who probably didn't find him endearing in any manner anyway) - knows someone who knows someone who's a smug solicitor who decides he can make a quick buck from this fool.

"The problem allegedly worsened in November and December when extra alcohol arrived at the warehouse in readiness for Christmas, the tribunal in Birmingham heard."

Verdict - bone idle nincompoop.
