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.”
