    Burger King recalls 'sacrilegious' desserts

    JOHN INNES

    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."

    A Muslim Council spokesman said: "We commend the sensitive and prompt action that Burger King has taken."

    Man those guys at Burger King sure are assholes. How could they not realize how offensive their ice cream cone design was? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    I'm sure Mohammed would've enjoyed Burger King if he were alive today.

        Its only an "inner struggle."


        We've already lost the "war."
        When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

              I'd like to declare a jihad on their current commercials...

              The "King" is a frightening fellow...
