Huge Restaurant Chains Just Took a MASSIVE Stand Against Shariah Law

BOOM: 3 Huge Restaurant Chains Just Took a MASSIVE Stand Against Shariah LawEverywhere they go, it seems that Muslims demand that countries conform to their standards, yet they refuse to change even a little bit to assimilate into the cultures in which they are living.

But the South China Morning Post reported that in Hong Kong, McDonald’s, KFC and Pizza Hut have actually stood up to Muslims and refused to change their menus just for them.

Hong Kong’s chief imam, Mufti Muhammad Arshad, contacted the three restaurants to request that they use halal meat in some of their restaurants so that Muslims could eat there.

Halal meat differs from regular meat mainly in the way it is procured. Allah’s name must be shouted during the killing of the animal, which is to be humane, and it the carcass must be hung upside down to bleed dry in accordance with Shariah law.

Halal meat is more expensive than non-halal meat, just as kosher food is generally more expensive than non-kosher food. These stores most likely refused simply because of the outrageous costs associated with importing Halal meat.

“It’s disappointing that we could not convince the companies,” Arshad said. “It doesn’t have to be Hong Kong-wide. In the main areas, like Central, Wan Chai, Tsim Sha Tsui, the New Territories and at the airport, it would be a great service. The companies have to realize there is a need for this and that it is good business for them.”

However, as only about 3 percent of Hong Kong’s population, the companies may have realized that “good business” would be not to dramatically increase food costs for fare that such a small Shariah law-compliant minority would demand.

“It’s also a chance to attract tourists from Muslim countries to Hong Kong. We’re showing that we are catering for them,” tourism sector lawmaker Paul Tse Wai-chun claimed.

Now there’s a great tourism slogan: “Come to Hong Kong; some of our fast food is halal.” Assuming that KFC is the city’s largest tourist attraction doesn’t sound like a winning strategy.

This would be less frustrating if the allowances worked both ways. If Saudi Arabia opened its doors to a chain of kosher delis, for example, or McDonald’s in Saudi Arabia began advertising the McRib, the argument for reciprocation would become much stronger.

Until then, not so much.
