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 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."
Rashad may be devout, but he's also mixing stupid with blind and he clearly suffers from the inability to deal with real life. Hey, Rashad, you idiot, no one at Burger King was working from the Big Book of Islam when coming up with the logo. It's ice cream and nothing more.
