Muslim Pc refused to shake hands

FFS what is the world coming too.

Watch this space...like you say, how long till the compensation claim goes in...who's going to be brave enough to run a book on that one

My money would be just outside 2 years having completed the probationary period.

Muslim attitudes are now really beginning to piss me off.
Shaking hands is part of British culture as well as that of many other cultures. This is just another example of how Muslims refuse to fit in with the culture of their host country. If that's how they want to live that's fine, but if that's what they want, they should go and live in an Islamic country.
We don't seem to have this sort of problem with followers of other religions.

It seems to me that the UK muslim Community is on a mission to see how far they can push things to stir up things and Claim vicitimisation and compo!What next?It has only succeded in pissing me off more and more!They should kick her out as unfit for service!!!!
 
i dont think iam a Jade "rascist" goody, but i am sick of the extremist muslims in this country.

i am sure that the majority vast vast majority is of the "live and let live"attitude

but as usual it takes but a few to f*ck it up for the rest of them.

I have no problems at all with the majority of the Muslim community. However if those who wish to practise their faith to these extremes they should consider carefully which type of employment they accept. Obviously some occupations are totally unsuitable and I would suggest in this case a police constable is one of them.

This woman obviously puts the laws and customs of her religion above those of the UK, therefore she is unfit to be a police officer charged with upholding those laws.

I agree - but it is not the Muslim community, rather a radical minority within the community trying to maintain seperateness for their own theopolitical purposes. Just to put this radical minority in some perspective however, they are little different in their ethos or approach to conservative Roman Catholicism or to fundamentalist Protestantism. Just think about the Cowcaddens firemen or the RUC in the 1970s.

What's Ruth Kelly done NOW?!! :wink: Oh that...

Well regarding both of them, isn't that what FAITH is all about? ...and for that matter, sociopolitical fundamentalism like faschism, communism and communitarianism?

Personally I am fed up of all extremists, Muslim, Christian Hindu etc etc.
 
Does it really matter that she would not shake hands with Sir Ian Blair. Providing she does her job to the standard expected she can refuse to touch anybody socially that she feels like for what ever reason.

The said Ian Blair was my immediate boss for one year back in the 80's and I would not shake his hand either, Total Txxxer.

Given some of the types of people the police have to deal with on an everyday basis surely it is commonsense not to shake hands as a matter of course to reduce the risk of catching something nasty and/or fatal.
