The owner of a grocery store got a bit more attention than he expected after making quite the sick demand about the halal food in his shop. Too bad for him, things wouldn’t exactly go the way that he was hoping – and that was about the time the local courts slapped him with the perfect reply.
According to Bare Naked Islam, the incident took place in the Colombes suburb of Paris, France, as outraged residents wanted to ensure that the district didn’t become another “no-go zone.” As it turns out, a Muslim bought Good Price discount mini-market, which happened to be the only grocery store in the area, and he immediately turned it into a halal shop. In other words, no pork or alcohol was being sold anymore.
Too bad for him, things wouldn’t exactly go according to plan since it wasn’t long before the local population started to fight back. Just like that, residents went to their elected officials who, after seeing the numerous complaints against the store, launched an investigation.
Come to find out, the owner of the store had signed a lease which stipulated that the market must act as a “general food store.” However, that never came to be as the owner apparently sought to appease only Muslims in the area.
Although it can’t be said for certain, many people believe this is actually a tactic used by Muslims in order to clear out an area and make it more populated by members of the Islamic faith. Knowing that non-believers won’t support such an inhumane way to kill animals purposed for food as those commanded for meat to be considered halal, those behind the idea hope that residents move elsewhere to get what they want.
In turn, that gets the non-Muslims out of their area and creates a vacuum, allowing for other Muslims to fill the void. As more Muslims come in, it encourages even more of the local natives to move elsewhere as the area’s Islamic influence grows.
Of course, in instances like this, it is especially effective since there was really only one main grocery store in Colombes. Whether or not this was the intended plan for the Muslim store owner, it seems that he’s not going to get very far.
Even though he demanded the right to sell only halal products, the local courts have just slapped him with the perfect reply. According to IBT, the owner was given an ultimatum last year — sell pork and alcohol or be shut down.
However, the owner had the audacity to ignore the order, claiming “discrimination” – but now, he’s paying big time. Most recently, the court of Nanterre ruled that the shop is to be closed down, and its rental lease is to be canceled after it failed to comply.
The court said that the market had not added alcohol and non-halal meats to its range of products and therefore went against its lease, and ruled its lease to be canceled, while ordering the owner of the shop to pay 4,000 euros worth of court fees, and empty the premises. [Source: Daily Sabah]
Now, not only is the Muslim out of a job and quite a bit of money, but his attempt to make his own little Islamic utopia was shattered right in front of him. The fact of the matter here is that, while we have the right to religious freedoms in the West, that doesn’t allow you to break the rules of a contract.
Even worse yet for people like this, it makes it illegal to discriminate against members of other faiths as they have the same exact rights. Too bad for this goon, he found out that the hard way – and now, he’s paying for it dearly.
