It was reported today that a UK prison in Brixton (South London) has built toilet blocks to allow the Muslim inmates to face away from Mecca! This is the most ludicrous story I’ve read in months. A Home Office spokesperson said: “The refurbishment has been carried out with the consideration for all faiths” – thanks to pressure from Muslim faith leaders.
Now if you ask me, anyone who commits a crime in our society forgoes their basic freedoms to do as they please, such as which way they sit on the big-white-telephone. If such criminals are concerned about the actions they take in the bathroom, then why not the consideration of their actions in the society they inhabit?
Also, it doesnâ€™t help when our pandering government yields to the demands of superstitious believers. As well as our schools, itâ€™s also our prisons suffering at the ridiculous hands of the superstitious.
For those confused about Muslim bathroom etiquette* here are some of the basics:
– One must not use food or animals to clean oneself (makes sense!)
– One must enter the bathroom with the left leg
– One must leave the bathroom with the right leg
– No talking (talking induces stage fright?!)
– One must face away from â€œQiblahâ€ or we know it as â€˜the way to Meccaâ€™ (not the bingo hall across the road from the prison)
– Finally, One should not clean Oneself with less than three stones (this one baffles me; I use tissue) or a bone or anything impure etcâ€¦
