Asda in Nottingham will change its menu following steak and ale pie Muslim controversy

Generic outraged Muslim

Menus in a supermarket’s cafe will be altered after a converted Muslim tasted ale in her steak pie.

Amanda Critchlow was tucking into a pie labelled as being a steak pie on the menu at the superstore, in Holles Street, Grimsby, when her daughter Rebecca sampled a piece and noticed something was not right with the meal.

A Nottingham cleric warned Muslims it is a sin to eat steak pie in Asda because it contains ale.

Dr Musharraf Hussain, the chief imam at the Karimia Institute, in Bobbers Mill, said: “Eating or drinking things that are forbidden by mistake is neither a sin nor something to kick a fuss about.

“It is a mistake that should not be made next time.”

Sheikh Nunu Miah, treasurer at the Shah Poran Islamic Centre, in Hyson Green, added: “If a Muslim eats it unknowingly then they are not guilty, but if they are aware that ale is in the pie before eating it, it is a sin.”

Speaking to the Grimsby Telegraph, Amanda, who has been a practising Islam for the past eight years, said she now feels guilty because consuming alcohol is forbidden in her religion…

    Muslims are conspiring to take over all jobs in food certification, food shipping and serving, in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. All revenues will collect zakat tax and pay for jihad. The halal market, now $3 trillion/year will soon be $10 trillion/year. We are asleep as they take over our city. Remember, they hate us for the sake of Allah.

    The alcohol cooks out; this is just more victimization politics.

      I agree with the first part of your reply but I’m not so certain about the second.
      The two named Muslim leaders are correct – the other leader is wrong*. If that is what Amanda has been taught, it is hardly surprising that she should feel that way. It could be that the nameless first leader is simply making the point that once a Muslim knows something is haram they should avoid it in future.
      * look at Google for Islam eating haram food accidentally. The general flow in the links is clear.

        It is my impression that “Islamic leaders” tend to make judgements in accordance with the situation, which can be ‘modified’ at a later date, when required.

    You feel guilty about eating the pie?
    Expiate it by going to Syria. Take your family with you.

    Was the pie labeled as halal? … I thought they were not allowed to eat non-halal stuff… meh… what do I know?

  • Frances

    So this woman thinks wine gums contain wine and can taste the alcohol that’s long gone from the pie. Obviously a food expert.

      An ex-drunk? She can smell a drink a mile away.

    There are some of these convert kooks working at the local Walmart. Its getting harder all the time to avoid their checkouts, so I always make sure I grab some yummy bacon, pork chops or pork sausages just in case. Although I notice they all wear plastic gloves.

  • Alain

    More fools caving in to this bullying. Any change in menu should be to include pork in the pies and make sure it is known. They were claiming to serve halal from my understanding, so why was the bloody cow eating there? Let me guess, another set-up to justify a complaint and to impose sharia.

    Will the last TRUE brit to leave England please turn off the light the roaches hate the light.
