After burqa, France protests Halal meat

Written by: Staff

Paris, Feb 19: After inviting the ire of the international Muslim community by mulling a ban on Burqa, France has now raised a cry opposing Halal menus in restaurants.

A fast food chain has found itself right in the middle of the controversy over its decision to serve only Halal meat in eight of its restaurants.

The decision by 350-branch Quick chain was based on the fact that these restaurants enjoy a strong Muslim clientele.

The Halal menu, however, did not fit in well with a right-leader, Marine Le Pen, who accused the fast food chain of imposing an 'Islamic tax' on its customers.

A lawsuit for discrimination against customers may also be filed as a mayor believes that serving the meat who do not want to eat according to Muslim dietary laws is discriminatory.

Ahead of Mar 2010 regional elections, this has led to a debate similar to the recent one over the Muslim women face veil against national identity.
