I patronise Marks & Spencer and Tesco strictly only in CHINA. We have no such nonsense rules here.

When will it end

I am glad my retirement leads me away from the UK for 50% of the year now

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

As a human being I'm not going to force someon ...

You're not forcing a muslim to drink alcohol or eat pork.

All they are doing is passing a container over a barcode scanner.

Comments by sensible muslim readers on one UK newspaper site indicated that there was absolutely no religious reason for an observant muslim cashier to refuse to handle customers who have purchased pork or alcohol.

Any fringe religious nutter who would refuse to serve customers who were purchasing "haram" items like pork or alcohol should also, by rights, refuse to handle ANY foodstuffs which were not HALAL.
This may include a variety of canned or preserved foods, items which might include pigskin, gelatin products from non Halal slaughtered animals, black pudding and so on.

Let's face facts, the only muslims who'd refuse to serve customers who had pig or alcohol products are religious nutters trying to make a political point, and I think that religious nutters (of whatever faith) are the last you'd want to employ to represent your company.

Ahh, but then those fringe nutter religious racists wouldn't have anything to complain about.

Mind you, there's nothing presented to indicate muslim staff have demanded this, it's more likely to be some politically correct nujob in the HR department.

Can I ask why this special privilege only to a specific kind of people. By this logic, Jews won't touch pork, Hindus won't touch beef and Atheist won't stand in a Christmas counter or special sales section. And religious observant people can't sell to homosexuals.

A very wrong decision M&S, a commercial company's top priority is to make an efficient and profitable business not to enforce self righteousness.
