Burger King recalls 'sacrilegious' desserts

JOHN INNES

THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.

The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a "jihad".

The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologised and said: "The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone."

The offending lid was spotted in a branch in Park Royal last week by business development manager Rashad Akhtar, 27, of High Wycombe.

He was not satisfied by the decision to withdraw the cones and has called on Muslims to boycott Burger King. He said: "This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims."

A Muslim Council spokesman said: "We commend the sensitive and prompt action that Burger King has taken."

Who works for ? I think a bit of reverse lefty action could be in order, phone/email his company stating disgust at his behaviour and tell them you are organising a boycott :D

In Muenster, hanging off the tower of the Lamberti Kirch are three cages used to in the 16century by Catholics to dispose of 3 Protestant leaders. I'm a protestant, what do you reckon my chances of getting them taken down?

A bit closer to home, every year we and our children celebrate the torture and ritual disembowelment of a famous religious freedom fighter and the fact that his religion was further oppressed within this great nation of ours. But I don't recall the Pope objecting to Bonfire Night on his last visit.

I'll bet McDonalds are chuffed to f*ck!

Do you think that the Muslim Council could put a Fatwa on SODEXHO? I'd support it and I'm C of E!

This is an MI5 plot to reduce the threat of home-grown terrorism by diverting disaffected Muslims' energy into a variety of perfectly ridiculous mini-jihads. Burger King were given the offending design by a secret media-ops section based at RAF Rudlow Manor, down the tunnel, next to the captured alien spaceship, just after the secret reserve of steam trains but before you get to the mind control ray transmitter. Mr. Akhtar is going to spend the next few months fighting "his own little jihad" on Burger King, when he could have been brewing TATP in his bathtub and casing tube stations.
