UK: Subway Drops Pork For Muslims


In the UK, Muslims are at the very top of the liberal caste system, so that pandering to them takes priority over all other interests. Allowing your culture to be absorbed and eventually eradicated by another has its costs. Two of the costs Britons are paying are ham and bacon:


UK: Subway caves to Muslim demands, removes pork, sells only halal meat

In the caption on a photo accompanying this article, the reliably dimwitted Daily Mail writes: “Nearly 200 Subway branches across the UK and Ireland have cut out ham and bacon, selling only halal meat, in response to demand from their multicultural customers.”

Their “multicultural customers”? And exactly what multiplicity of cultures demanded that Subway drop ham and bacon and sell only halal meat? Most likely that demand came from people of only one culture, and has rendered these 200 Subway restaurants less multicultural than before: now non-Muslims in Britain who would like to enjoy a Chicken and Bacon Ranch Melt or an Italian sub with pepperoni are out of luck: Muslims and Sharia-compliant dhimmis are the only ones who will be served.


The Islamization of Britain gallops on: “Subway removes ham and bacon from nearly 200 stores after ‘strong demand’ from Muslims who can only eat halal meat,” by (dizzy Miss Lizzie) Parry, Daily Mail, April 30, 2014 (thanks to JW):

Around 200 branches of Subway have cut ham and bacon from their menus, serving halal meat in response to calls from their Muslim customers.

The sandwich chain said ‘following a strong demand from our Muslim customers’, 185 stores in the UK and Ireland have introduced the meat, which is prepared under strict Islamic rules.

In Arabic the word halal means ‘permitted’ or ‘lawful’ and defines anything that is allowed or lawful according to the Qur’an.

It is often used to indicate food – particularly meat – has been prepared in accordance with Muslim principles and techniques.

Muslims are forbidden from eating any non-halal food and meat from pigs and Subway said customers can identify those stores selling halal food by the special ‘All meats are Halal’ sign, which must be displayed in participating branches.

In the halal-only branches ham and bacon has been substituted for turkey ham and rashers.

For many animal charities halal slaughter is condemned as being cruel to animals.

Traditionally in halal abattoirs the throats of the animals are cut while they are fully conscious – an act many campaigners say is inhumane and needlessly cruel.

In non-halal abattoirs, livestock are stunned before killing to prevent any unnecessary suffering.

Some halal butchers also practise pre-stunning, though it is not permitted by some Islamic scholars.

In Britain, killing an animal without prior stunning is illegal, but the law gives special exemption to Muslim and Jewish meat producers on the grounds of religion.

There are thought to be around 12 abattoirs dedicated to unstunned slaughter in the UK, while hundreds practise stunned halal slaughter.

A Subway spokeswoman told MailOnline all halal meat served in the participating branches is from animals who were stunned prior to slaughter.

She said: ‘The growing popularity of the Subway chain with the diverse multicultural population across the UK and Ireland means we have to balance the values of many religious communities with the overall aim of improving the health and welfare standards of animals.

‘We put a programme into place in 2007 to ensure that the population demographic is taken into account when new store openings are considered in order that we meet consumer demand in each location.

All ham and bacon is replaced by turkey ham and turkey rashers and all meat is prepared according to Islamic halal rules.

‘All our suppliers comply with EU animal welfare legislation as a minimum and we require suppliers of halal products to adopt the stunning of animals prior to their slaughter.

‘All halal meats are certified by the appropriate halal authorities.

‘All halal Subway stores have numerous signs stating that they serve halal food.

‘These are situated on the menu panels, nutritional information and in the front window of the store.’…

  1. Well Muslims could have just not ordered bacon and other pork meat dishes just as Jews decline to do so and as 7th Days avoid crustaceans etc but no. That isn’t what they are about but are about ordering dhimmis not to eat haram foods. In other words they are intimidating organisations into implementing sharia.

    Non-muslims often cannot see a problem with sharia as they do not understand that sharia applies to them as well as muslims when muslims start calling the shots, as they do in the UK.

  2. Any chance of everybody boycotting Subway?

    I love my pork!

    I do not force people not to eat what I do not eat.

  3. Why don’t we all the next time we pass a subway, order a sandwich, let them make it, then at the end ask for bacon/ham on it when they apolagise for not having any, tell em to shove it up thier arse

  4. umm..
    Firstly, Bronson, all meet has to be halal (animal slaughtered in the islamic way) – not just pork.
    Secondly, why is everyone so threatened by us ? Some uneducated people just like throwing words like shariah and islamists out. True there are some bad people that are muslims. but that goes for christians, jews, athiests, hindus aswell. Try to look at the bigger picture. be openminded. It’s unfair of some people to think we do not have a right to eat as well. There are MANY places where u can get good bacon/ham/pork etc. but few takeouts that are halal.

    Its disheartening to see so many negative comments about muslims, halal and sharia. We’re not the ones trying to invade and take over other countries.
    Please, think about these things and lose some of the hatred.

  5. “I have been commanded to wage war on all mankind until the people say there is no god and Muhammad is his profit”– Muhammad, inventor of Islam

    Islam is not like other religions. The roots of the faith, the history, and the teachings from basic texts compel both the violence and the broad indifference that sustains it. Despite the drive that Westerners have to believe that other people are just like them, and that other religions are just like theirs, it is anti-intellectual to ignore the stark evidence that demands otherwise.

    Abu Ala Maududi, the founder of Jamaat-e-Islami, puts it this way in his book, Jihad in Islam:

    “Islam is not a normal religion like the other religions in the world, and Muslim nations are not like normal nations. Muslim nations are very special because they have a command from Allah to rule the entire world and to be over every nation in the world. Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man. Islam doesn’t look for a nation to be in better condition than another nation. Islam doesn’t care about land or who owns the land. The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power in this world that tries to get in the way of that goal Islam will fight and destroy. In order for Islam to fulfill that goal, Islam can use every power available every way it can be used to bring worldwide revolution. This is jihad.”

  6. “We’re not the ones trying to invade and take over other countries.”

    Yeah, sure. Contrary to the population growth of Muslims in the West in the last 20-15 year. But, then not even Muslims want to live in their shitholes of origin. Lucky us.

    One can find a plethora of halal foods in over 50+ Muslims country. Giving one plenty of options to have halal. Such animal cruelty should not be allowed in the West simply because it is hidden behind the term “religious tradition.”
