I had heard something recently on the radio about Halifax and NatWest Banks of London deciding to ban piggy banks because it may offend some of their Muslim customers. You see, Muslims do not eat pork and consider the animal impure. That was what my original post was going to be about. So, I did a regular Google search on the subject and didn't find what I considered a reputable source for the info. I did a search under the BBC website and some other London newspapers -still found nothing.
I then decided to do a Google search on "offended UK Muslims" and came across not only the piggy bank story, but 284,000 hits that match that criteria. Here are just a few:
Muslims Offended by British Flag
Burger King recalls 'sacrilegious' desserts
Muslims Scream About Ice Cream
Muslims' fury as Pope 'compared to Prophet'
Muslims boycott Holocaust remembrance
Muslims Against Advertising
I guess the squeaky wheel does get the grease.
