The Tolerance of Islamic Checkout Clerks

A MUSLIM store worker refused to serve a customer buying a children’s book on Christianity because she said it was “unclean”.

Shopper Sally Friday felt publicly humiliated at a branch of Marks & Spencer when she tried to pay for First Bible Stories as a gift for her young grandson.

When she put the book on the check-out counter, the young assistant refused to touch it, declared it was unclean and summoned another member of staff to serve instead.

Mrs Friday said she was so upset that she has now complained to the store’s management.

Last night politicians and religious leaders supported her in condemning the high street giant and reigniting the debate over religious beliefs in the workplace.

Conservative MP Philip Davies said the refusal to serve Mrs Friday, 69, was “unacceptable” and “damaging” to community relations.

Inayat Bunglawala, assistant secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, described the assistant’s comments as “offensive” and called for Marks & Spencer to carry out a thorough investigation.

* Bunglawussie recommendation: don’t stock Christian children’s books, they are offensive to Muslims…

Mrs Friday said her trip to the sales in Reading, Berks, with her daughter had been ruined.

I went to the till and heard the girl say it was unclean and then she got someone else to serve me,” said Mrs Friday.

“At first I wasn’t sure what was going on and then I realised she was wearing a headdress and I clicked that the title of the book had Bible in it. I felt very humiliated and immediately left the store.”



Robert Spencer just pointed out that the store clerk acted in accordance with Qur’an 9:28. 

Lets have a closer look at that sura, or ayat, here 



  1. Sorry, I forgot to add that this story may be of interest to the two who comment on a previous post in regards to the obvious lowlife, uneducated scum who comment at WoJ. A question, boys: Where is the intelligence and compassion being shown by the sales assistant? Or is she spared the burden of common decency because she is Muslim? Compassion? You people wouldn’t know compassion if it hit you in the head.

  2. * Bunglawussie recommendation: don’t stock Christian children’s books, they are offensive to Muslims…

    Stick to something inoffensive to Muslims, like teddy bears … hmm, perhaps not

    How about cultural sensitivity & diversity training for Muslim staff? Has it ever been tried?

    Or just let once-great Britain continue down the gurgler … no empire left to pump in jizyah to
    prop it up.

  3. This lady should do what a muslim would do if the positions were reversed………….take the shop assistant to the Human Rights people and claim massive damages.

  4. time to stop stocking muslims. actually i find that with the islamic attitude to Jews it’s very strange this woman was working for M&S. she should be fired and deported.

  5. Sack the bitch. looks like I’ll have to take another trips to Borders and re-locate a koran to the true crime section.

  6. Why should Mrs. Friday have felt humiliated? She should have yelled at the store clerk for being offensive!! She shouldn’t have taken the crap from her!!

  7. Well Chaya, haven’t you noticed that people just LOVE to feel humiliated? Offended and humilitated; those are the two great feelings of the 21st century.

  8. Let the infidels riot over this like Koranists do when they are treated like this. Oh wait-infidels work for a living so they don’t have the time. Never mind!
