If Muslims Can’t Eat Pork, No One Can Eat Pork
Posted By Daniel Greenfield On November 12, 2012 @ 12:45 pm In The Point | 20 Comments
There’s a difference between accommodating the religious beliefs of employees by allowing them to pray or take time off on holidays and forcing everyone else to accommodate them by preventing them from having a ham sandwich. But that’s what BooHoo clothing , a UK online retailer of trashy outfits, has done by declaring their workplace a Halal environment where no one is allowed to eat pork.
But it can’t end there. Muslims consider pigs an impure abomination, but they also consider dogs an impure abomination. That means Boo Hoo clothing outlets, like so many Muslim cabbies, will have to discriminate against the blind to accommodate Muslim superstition and bigotry.
The entire Muslim demand that other people be repressed and restricted is a symptom of Islamic intolerance and another reminder of why Islam is barely compatible with even variant versions of itself, let alone any other religion.
But considering many of the immodest non-burqa like clothes that Boo Hoo sells, the objections can’t stop there. If Muslims can demand that other employees at Boo Hoo clothing outlets not eat meat, why not force them to wear burqas too>
Boo Hoo clothing online stores were co-founded by Mahmud Kamani (Yes, there’s always going to be a Mohammed in there somewhere) and Carol Kane. Unfortunately rather than choosing to display tolerance toward his non-Muslim employees, Mahmud Kamani has decided to harass and discriminate against them instead.
And if you’re wondering what it’s like to work for Mahmud Kamani, here’s a glimpse from a posting by one of his employees.
I am currently working for a fashion company. It is owned by a Mr Kamani, and his sons are the managers. Now, these sons are arrogant, ignorant, rude and demanding to their employees. And they did absolutely nothing to gain this position of very considerable wealth and power, other than claim it by being related to it’s creator. And yet, they enjoy and indeed exploit their privileged position.
Mahmud Kamani, the most arrogant man I have ever met, strolls into work at about 11 or 12, and throws his weight around shouting at employees, and leaves about 3.
Mahmud Kamani’s son, Umar Kamani (aka UmarBooHoo, no seriously it’s his Twitter handle) is running another online fashion trash store called Pretty Little Things.
Neither of the Kamanis have enough religious scruples to prevent them from selling clothes that Islam deems immodest, yet they feel that they can dictate what their employees eat in the name of Islamic law. But if they could make money selling pork, they would do it. And that is yet another reminder that Islam is a hypocritical religion. It is not about faith, but about power over others.
And when it comes to ethics, Mahmud and Umar Kamani don’t appear to treat their customers any better than they treat their employees based on some of these complaints.
Name: Laura Harris
I ordered off the sister website Pretty little things. After receiving a “size 5″ pair of boots they were more like a size 7. Sent them bak to 21three ltd in burnley as stated THREE WEEKS AGO and still no refund after numerous attempts of emailing. So far I’m down £34.00. Pathetic scummy robbing thieves I am NEVER shopping with pretty little things/boohoo ever again. U think ur gettin bargain but seriously don’t bother with them as u will receive poor service. It’s ok for one of the directors umar kumani recently jetting off to Dubai isn’t it whilst ppl like me who fund it!!!!SCUM!! Dodgy as!!
I then went about trying to receive a refund, and where are they? NOWHERE to be found. Not a single reply to any of the emails sent. It’s not even that their customer service is bad, it’s just non-existent! Once they have your money, it’s clear they want nothing more to do with you. Awful company, would not use again.
Hey, In regards to your previous emails BOOHOO are known nationally as Pinstripe, They have been conning out people for the last 15 year’s making people bankrupt and taking loads of money through tax fraud!
Now that they have conned out over 40 companies they are living the high life driving rolls royce phantoms with people’s hard worked money!
I would strongly suggest anyone who wishes to view there products NOT TO PURCHASE anything! as they will only scam you and take your money! they feel they can do so as there is no third party to over look there books! or service!
They also have a new website called PRETTY LITTLE THINGS! Do not purchase of them also as you will only get the same service!
They are based in Manchester and are the biggest crooks in the Industry! they will do this eventually to everyone! people who have had good service off them before im happy for you but as I know them personally I would recommend you not to put money in their filthy pockets!
The owner can be found on twitter!
If you are to ask anybody in the fashion industry they will tell you the real truth about these scum bags!
Also I would strongly advise people to go to watchdog! or some other big firm which can look into this company!
Reading the above comments only shows a small handfull of people who have been robbed! many other customers have probably not even bothered to find this site! as they have given up hope
Everybody who commented above should create a flash mob and post a comment on their facebook page at a set time and date!
As poor customers posting one thing at a time will only get deleted!
This should be taken to newspapers!
As I have just recently read they made over £139,000 Profit in the last year meaning all these refunding items are being declared as sales and not refunds!
PLEASE DO NOT BUY FROM BOOHOO.COM!
OR PRETTY LITTLE THINGS.CO.UK
PINSTRIPE SHOULD BE MADE BANKRUPT!

Dear Achmed, get porked!
At least there is one thing they and the Jews agree on...
I wish there was some bacon smelling deodorant available.
I’m not getting enough antiperspirant protection from the bacon slices I have been using.
you need to make a private inquiry with the moderators
your ping list posts are again going up in duplicate, duplicate from you
I don’t think it’s you; it’s happening with another ping list too
the moderators need to look into a possible server issue
your ping list posts look like they are in TRIPLICATE, TRIPLICATE from you
I dont think its you; its happening with another ping list too

My own modest proposal:
How Islamand the ever-present threat it poses to humanitycould be brought to an end in one, simple step.
I’d be cooking bacon in the break room microwaves to fill the air with the smell. If they ask, I’ll tell them it’s turkey bacon. They can’t touch it or taste it, it’s against their creed, so they won’t know the difference.
I’d have BLTs every day and make giant sloppy pulled pork sandwiches. It’ll be delicious!
The Muslims are allowed to lie to non-Muslims (taqqiyah). Why can’t I lie right back at them?
yup, and we are to tolerate the intolerant!
Will this company employ a sandwich inspector to check for contraband pork? What if an employee had bacon and eggs for breakfast? Would his bacon breath constitute a workplace infraction?
I would say GFY as I ate my BLT on toast.
If I can’t eat pork around a Muzzi, then my pork ( on the hoof) can eat Muzzi around me:)
It’s not all just about Muslims and pork-
I work in a SE Michigan engineering office where the majority of employees are Indians and most of them are here on work visas. Our HR and office managers and ‘helpers’ (white females) are more offended than anyone else by the suggestion of having all types of meat as possible items when ordering pizza or any other type of food for our in-house luncheons. There will always be the strictly veggie chicken and otherwise beef-free versions on hand but why these women feel that they should be dictating what is and what is not appropriate for anyone and everyone is a big fat joke and even the Indian people working here think it’s just plain silly. Oh and by the way, the white women I’m talking about are all well under the age of 40.
I think I will have a BBQ sandwich for lunch to honour this request!
Their company, their rules. I would suggest that if the employees don’t like it, they vote with their feet. And if consumers don’t like it, they vote with their wallets.
What do they make anyway? High fashion hijabs?
I live about a half mile from Clemens Quality Meats. They run 3500 hogs through here a day. I think we can find pork parks in copious amounts to use as ammo. Have a spud cannon....that might work....Parent company of Hatfield Quality Meats.
I’m with you...I’d be fly their flag upside down and be agitating my tush off.....this is OUR country. No Sharia, NO HOW, no WAY! That’s where I believe this will really get ugly for foreigners here. When they try and shove sharia down our throats.
My daughter lives in Istanbul and the thing she misses most is bacon. We have sent her the precooked bacon, and packed it and country ham in our suitcases when we go. Haven’t had any confiscated yet.
Look, look,look,...you just have get used to eating goat eyeballs, goat rectums, and goat penis. What’s wrong with you guys? So you can’t eat a BLT!!! There’s plenty tasting goat innards to chew on!! And once you develop a taste for goat lips and genitals, you’ll be ready to denounce Christiantity and take your new name, Mohammed!!!
Well I can say that, as a Christian, I am NOT under the LAW but rather UNDER GRACE.
When Crescent Bank owned Church’s Chicken, they forced franchise owners to not sell bacon or sausage biscuits.
Oh, they'd just love me there.
When did Great Britain decide on the policy of allowing in ANY inhabitant of the former British Empire countries who so chose to travel to and remain in England?
There is now a huge polyglot of languages and varying ethnicities that vastly outreproduce and shall soon outnumber the English in their native land they have held for well over a thousand years, after repeated conquests ond subjugation of the earlier residents.
And almost all of them kind of LIKED pork.
Well, old cathedrals make GREAT mosques, after minaret towers are constructed at all corners.
Those pictures of Jesus in the stained glass windows have got to go, though. A well-aimed rock should take care of most of them.
That photo makes me hungry for a Cherokee Hog Fry!
***I work in a SE Michigan engineering office where the majority of employees are Indians and most of them are here on work visas.***
Order a SUPREME Pizza with lots of Canadian Bacon and pepperoni you won’t have to share with too many people there!
Don’t forget the pork rinds for snacks!
I recall that there was a workplace where I did a network installation, and in the break room there a couple of signs, “Please do not store unkosher food in the refrigerator.” Interestingly enough, there was another, smaller refrigerator with a sign, “Unkosher Food Only.”
Of course, this was a synagogue, and they requested that the non-Jewish staff (there were only a few) store unkosher lunches in the secondary fridge, while drinks or anything else, if kosher, could be stored in the main fridge.
They also requested, but never enforced, a rule that people not bring pork into the breakroom.
Big difference between muslims and Jews, huh?
“Big difference between muslims and Jews, huh?”
It is, and I think a lot of people don’t understand.
Jewish people do not attempt to impose Jewish law on non-Jewish people; it’s simply inapplicable.
Now, I personally don’t eat pork, and candidly find the smell of bacon disgusting, but that’s my problem and I wouldn’t demand employees stop eating BLTs.
I was raised as a Conservative Jew. I have many childhood memories of hypocrisy. Often, at another family’s home, after poker games, the adults would verify that Grandpa was asleep and then order out ribs. Grandpa was not asleep. He simply waited until the order arrived and everyone was eating and then saunter downstairs for a “glazel wasser.” Everyone would freeze and Granpa would serenely get his water and slowly walk back upstairs, smiling. When my father was away on business, my mother would make kielbasa for us. She once tried to get our Jewish pediatrician to say bacon was ok for kids “because of the minerals.” I remember her telling Dad she bought meat at the supermarket because it was cleaner than the Jewish butcher’s.
Many Jews simply ignore dietary laws, like Catholics ignore birth control laws.
Will do. And the only people who’d be ‘offended’ by it would be the young white women in Human Resources and the Office Manager.
They’d be less fearful of hitchhiking at 2:45 in the morning in a bad part of Detroit. THAT’S how ridiculous their need to adhere to political correctness is.
“Now, I personally dont eat pork, and candidly find the smell of bacon disgusting, but thats my problem and I wouldnt demand employees stop eating BLTs.”
That’s mighty white of you!
More swarthy than white, but hey, that’s life.
“I have many childhood memories of hypocrisy.”
I am proud to be Jewish and don’t view the dietary restrictions as “restrictions” at all -— but blessings from G-d.
Now, I don’t know why the rules exist, but I know He is good, and that’s enough for me to accept His rules, just like my daughters have learned to accept “because I told you so.”
This is what ISLAM is.. subjugate or die.. period.
You do not get freedom of expression or self determination, you live as you are told or you die... Period.
Why folks think otherwise is beyond me.
“This is what ISLAM is.. subjugate or die.. period.”
That’s what Islamic extremism is.
UK immigration hss gone through periods of open access, with periods of restriction. Sadly, Labour 1997-2010 opened the floodgates, although I would point out that the biggest influx in recent years was from Poland and E Europe.
No, the immigrants wont ever come close to taking over. Hell, the blacks and Orientals have been here since just after the war, in fact most Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims came over in the 1950’s to 70’s.
The UK is 96% NON-Muslim.
The UK is 92-93% white.
Cool! I call DIBS on your share!
If you believe there is a distinction between Wahabbism and “mainstream” Islam.. you truly are a fool.
I deal with many “moderate” muslims, and every one of them once in a position of power ensures there religious “views” are followed by everyone when it applies.. such as with Pork.
There is no such thing as put pork on the buffet and you can’t or don’t want to eat it you skip it, nope the Muslim will every time, demand the pork be completely removed.
There is no live and let live within Islam, now not all Muslim’s follow the tenants completely, but not a damned one I have ever been exposed to does not ensure his religious doctrine rules all when they eventually have the power to exercise it.
Absolutlely. I’ll save it for you.
Hey, Mohammed BooHoo, why don’t you sell your business and return to the Middle East or South Asian hellhole that spawned your forebearers?
“If you believe there is a distinction between Wahabbism and mainstream Islam.. you truly are a fool.”
I didn’t say anything about the difference between Wahabbism and “mainstream” Islam, which you certainly seem to be familiar with. I said that when it’s “subjugate or die...”, it’s Islamic extremism.
Have you ever seen footage of those guys in the Phillipines who have themselves nailed to crosses in observance of Good Friday? Nobody gets murdered but it’s still a form of religious extremism.
So by my logic (maybe not by yours), in terms of human behavior, if it’s to die by the hand of another Muslim for a lack of subjugation, then that is also Islamic (religious) extremism, not to mention behavioral extremism and because the left hand knows what the right hand is doing, so to speak, it’s completely outside of the norm and just because a Muslim believes it’s “okay” or in keeping with the teachings of the Koran or the will of Allah doesn’t mean it’s right or even civilized.
