Muslim staff at Marks & Spencer (a major supermarket retailer) can refuse to sell alcohol and porkMarks & Spencer says its Muslim staff do not have to sell pork or alcohol to   customers A Marks and Spencer customer chooses a bottle of wine Photo: Kumar Sriskandan / Alamy                        









Muslim staff working for Marks & Spencer have been given permission to refuse   to serve customers buying alcohol or pork products

Its policy decision has highlighted a split among the big food retailers over   whether religious staff should be excused certain jobs.

In contrast to M&S, Sainsbury’s said it had issued official guidelines that   stated there was no reason why staff who did not drink alcohol or eat pork   for religious reasons could not handle the goods.  

The advice followed consultations with religious groups, said a spokesman.

Tesco said it treated each case on its merits, but said it “made no sense” to   employ staff on a till who refused to touch certain items for religious   reasons.

If certain people do not want to handle specific items, or even want to refuse serving customers desiring them, they may always just simply not take up that work.
Or simply not come so near to Europe in the first place.

people can just go to another cashier, no big deal.

As a human being I'm not going to force someone to violate their religious views if I can just go to a different cashier. Good job Marks and Spencer for putting human rights above making money {:soso_e179:}

Then go to a different shop, I'm sure that you can't have a whole area of just Muslim cashiers. Maybe religion is not important to you or to me but it is to them, so we need to respect it, doesn't matter what religion it is.  
In the UK cultural diversity is a big issue which is one reason for why I have great admiration for the country.
