Putting the Desert into Dessert

Via LGF, we have the story of Burger King’s “sacrilegious” dessert.

The fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.

 

The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a “jihad”.

 

The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologised and said: “The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone.”

 

The offending lid was spotted in a branch in Park Royal last week by business development manager Rashad Akhtar, 27, of High Wycombe.

 

He was not satisfied by the decision to withdraw the cones and has called on Muslims to boycott Burger King. He said: “This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims.”

Both The Sun and LGF have a picture of the offending ice cream lid.

 

Who do Burger King think they are, insensitively incorporating a symbol of Islam into its product! It’s enough to put any Muslim off their cola..

 

 

Update: I don’t think Burger King are the only fast food giants in the firing line. Here is a picture of the word “Allah” in Arabic upside down:

 

 

Look familiar?
