When the West clashes with Islam, Islam always wins. A disabled woman was made to wait in a queue in her local post office while a Muslim server was on his knees behind the counter saying his prayers. The owner of the shop defended the Muslim and banned the disabled woman, who has to use a mobility scooter, from ever entering the store again. This will necessitate a disabled lady in a scooter having to travel afar in order to collect her pension.
When she complained at having to wait for so long without being attended to, the Muslim shopworker leaped up from behind the counter and told her: “How dare you speak to me that way.” The owner of the store says the Muslim has every right to take five minutes out of his day to say his prayers. This might be store policy, but surely the owner of the shop should have other staff members there to accommodate the needs of the people who patronize the store. The pensioner now has to be driven by her daughter to a post office further away.
This isn’t the first time that a Muslim’s needs have come before the needs of customers and people in their care. In 2012, a woman died because a Muslim nurse refused to help her because he was praying.
