A Muslim said he is suing Tesco for religious discrimination because he was asked to handle crates of alcohol in a warehouse.
Mohammed Ahmed, 32, was employed at the supermarket giant's Lichfield depot in September last year for a job that included transporting various goods on fork-lift trucks.
The Saudi Arabia national told a tribunal he had not been told when he started the job that he would be handling alcoholic drinks - a task he said was against his Islamic beliefs.
The situation came to a head in the run-up to Christmas last year, when more alcohol was ferried to the warehouse in preparation for the festive season.
Mr Ahmed, who moved to Derby in 2006, complained to Tesco in February, but claims he was treated unfairly as a result. After eight months working for the company, he left in protest.

Jews get the same treatment as well with religious courts - why are you not protesting against those courts as well? Cannot be bias towards one religious sect.
This story has been taken WAY out of contexts by the right wing media. BTW, religious courts do not apply in criminal cases either - arbitration is only used in a civil cases and means the court does not force terms (saving tax payers money.) Third parties are legally allowed to discuss the terms.
English Law allows religion to be used as a means of arbitration. Sikhism, Hinduism and any religion is tolerated when it comes to settling a domestic/civil dispute.
Either all religions are accepted as arbitration or none at all.

It would appear you need to brush up on your British history my American friend.
Many protests in modern times have been kept quiet and out of the press.This is nothing new though.The Peterloo Massacre(1819) was kept out of English history books for over a 100yrs and it wasn't until the 1980's when a plaque was allowed to be put up to commemerate the event at the place it happened,St Peters Field,Manchester.
I was born in Manchester and have lived here all my life,so i guess that makes my qualifications better than yours,and i know many Muslim families who have lived here for generations.They are part of the communities and intergrate quite happily with everyone.More importantly,they condemn Muslim fundamentalists and hate the fact that they receive abuse from the trouble caused by these so called "defenders of the faith."

I personally saw a group of Muslims spit on a British girl once on Manchester's "curry mile" because she was showing too much cleavage, at least that's what the barrage of insults appeared to indicate.
None of that happens here in the US, and yet we have millions of muslim residents - doesn't that make you wonder why?

To be honest I have heard lots of stories up and down the UK country where curry houses and Kabab shops have been investigated for food hygene who are known to be found boldily fluids in the food, (just think of some). Some of my eduction years around Asian students have all said these things happen, me thinking it was just prank talk at the time never took it seriously. But now I know it does happen and tests have been run to prove it. It usually stems from Infedel hate and the circle of the backlash racism that keeps washing up like the waves of a beach.

i think that has been said about many places, i think a lot of these are urban myths.
In Derbyshire a similar thing had been said about a mcdonalds drive thru
