Nurses Told to Turn Muslim Beds Toward Mecca

#1
Daily Express Story

How much more can this country be expected to do? I respect everyone's right to religion but surely this impinges on the duty of care for other patients?

OVERWORKED nurses have been ordered to stop all medical work five times every day to move Muslim patients’ beds so they face towards Mecca.
Great news, even more people will now think islam is taking the p*ss at every chance.

Quick start issuing these to all nursing staff. After all we have nothing better to spend the NHS billions on!

Do you know the way to Mecca?

Want to find the direction to Mecca? Need to convert a Gregorian date into the Hijri calendar? Feel like reading the complete Holy Koran in English or Uthmanic? No problem. The Ilkone i800 is a GSM mobile phone created specially for Muslims by a Dubai-based company, Ilkone Mobile Communications. The handsets will be available before the end of the year in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia and India.

Good point. Half the time it's the people up higher who pass down these stupid orders without thinking that all they are accomplishing is alienating the rest of the public from one Religion, as they are showing not integration, but segregation and special treatment.

Who asked for this? The Express story doesn't say. And does anyone have any pictures of the 'burkas' that are apparently required for some female patients? Or is this a BS attempt to keep uppity Muslims in the news now Sudan's going quiet?

Are we to have apartheid by stealth in this country pandering to minority whims will surely put us on the road to such a state.

Turning beds towards Mecca, Hospital prayer rooms monopolized by one religion to the extent that they are no go areas for the majority, Islamic schools, as has been suggested Muslim only wards, Muslim only GP's the list could grow.

This needs stopping and stopping now all it takes is some one with the balls to say NO and mean it, and be prepared to push what I believe will be the consequences to the bitter end (that is to say prepared to put their job on the line), we need more people with principals in positions of authority and less of the minor politician wannabe's

Was "asked" for in consultation with community leaders and former patients.

The Burqua thing is the real deal the nurse who suggested it was actually given an award for customer service or some such, My other half works for the same NHS trust in a senior position

NHS Burqa

Can we compromise?

Draw a line horizontally along the Watford Gap and halve the Country? Have a PC-Fest Islamic portion in the South and have the tolerent North?

Not outraged Biscuits more saddend that what was once in the main a tolerant society is becoming less so due to the pandering that is going on in the name of "Inclusion" by highlighting peoples differences we are only going to make matters worse.

We should concentrate on what makes us the same not what marks us down as different

Silly Question??
Do the hospitals in Muslim countries turn their hospital beds to Mecca 5 times a day.I very much doubt it.

If they don´t bother why should our nurses be bothered,hospital is not a holiday camp,and I´m pretty sure that Mohamed or Allah himself doesn´t expect the sick to be disturbed 5 times a day.After all if they are sick they don´t have to fast for Ramadan either,somebody´s taking the p*ss and the PC brigade are falling over themselves to kiss arrse.

I´d give the Muslims their own hospitals but I´ve seen Turkish cleaning teams doing their best(?) and I wouldn´t want Britain to be afflicted with bubonic plague!No Idea of hygeine whatsoever!

I like this comment by an Express reader :D

When I am in hospital can they turn my bed so my backside will always face Gordon Brown?

leaving aside the practicalities of it (disturbing other patients etc) why should it be the staff who perform the task? Surely concerned relatives could do this for them, or wheel them down to the mosque.
They would soon get bored of it.
