On May 1, 2014, there was an article in the Daily Mail about a fast food retailer replacing their meat (ham) for halal meat. I thought this was great and posted it as a status. Unfortunately, not all think the same as I. The amount of abuse I received was horrendous. Then in today’s (Wednesday, May 7) newspaper The Sun had on it’s front page. It just made me really angry. Why whip up hysteria? It is worrying about what the world is coming to.
Here is a link:
Everyone are entitled to their own opinions and beliefs. That is what makes the world so interesting. It is an option. You don’t have to eat it if you don’t want to. Retailers have to support their customers needs. If there is a demand for it. It is fine.
One of the comments, I received was about ‘why was a minority group force anyone change a menu’ – they weren’t forced. It is a business approach. A business is focusing on their demand of the majority of their customers. When you’re at school, college, Uni they tell you express yourself, free will, speak. I’m going off the point now, in the early twenty century, minority overpowered the majority. It was the suffragettes for women to vote. How is anything minority a bad thing? If it wasn’t for the suffragettes, we wouldn’t be able to vote today.
I guess, this is a subject, you try and avoid when blogging about. As it brings up religion and fear. This whole world is made of some many different people, from different cultures. If we want to live in peace, we have to respect others and adapt to our area.
