Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed

Submitted by Amina (Australia), Sep 27, 2009 at 04:48

Complete ... overgeneralization, you can only name ONE instance where a Muslim man switched over to a Halal menu at HIS OWN establishment and you're crying blood over the entire religion. How is this different to if he were vegetarian and decided to stop serving meat? Can a vegetarian man not own a vegetarian restaurant? Can a Muslim man not own a Halal establishment? If the residents can't stand not eating bacon and ham ever single day perhaps they should seek another that is more suitable. Besides, why are they serving such unhealthy fatty foods at a retirement home? Surely you'd prefer to live another day without suffering cardiac arrest? Halal is a way of life, not a doctrine that is imposed upon all non-Muslims by Muslims. I am a Muslim and I don't eat pork but I live in a sharehouse with Christians and I have friends who are Jewish and I have NEVER stopped them from eating pork, but I would never cook them pork either. Learn some respect for other people's traditions.
