McDonald’s makes a major announcement and has just teamed up with their fellow fast food chains Pizza Hut and KFC to stick it to Muslims in an epic way. According to The Political Insider, each of these restaurant chains has rejected the request of an Islamic Imam to have Islam-approved meat served in their establishments.
Mufti Muhammad Arshad, an Imam in Hong Kong, contacted the chains demanding that they use Halal meats, saying it would be a “shrewd business move.” Now, he’s livid that they dared to defy him.
According to Arshad:
“It’s disappointing that we could not convince the companies,” Arshad said. “It doesn’t have to be Hong Kong-wide. In the main areas, like Central, Wan Chai, Tsim Sha Tsui, the New Territories and at the airport, it would be a great service. The companies have to realise there is a need for this and that it is good business for them.”
Tourism sector lawmaker Paul Tse Wai-chun said he would welcome anything that would increase the diversity of Hong Kong and cater for people from different religious backgrounds. He said it would also be good for local businesses.
Better luck next time buddy, they are not about to bow to your demands and I hope others follow in their lead.
