"DOCTORS and health workers have been banned from eating lunch at their desks - in case it offends their Muslim colleagues.
Health chiefs believe the sight of food will upset Muslim workers when they are celebrating the religious festival Ramadan. The lunch trolley is also to be wheeled out of bounds as the 30-day fast begins next month. ...
The new guidance comes in the wake of the failed terror attacks on Glasgow and the death of suspect Kafeel Ahmed, 27. Health chiefs in Lothian and Glasgow will give all employees time off to pray and to celebrate Eid, which marks the end of Ramadan.
But Greater Glasgow and Clyde as well as Lothian NHS boards also issued the advice, warning workers not to take working lunches, and said all vending machines should be removed from areas where Muslims work.The guidance, which was sent round many organisations, was produced by Glasgow consultancy Meem, which advises on Muslim issues and counts the Scottish Parliament among its clients.
Na’eem Raza, a senior consultant with the firm, said he was thrilled that the health boards had formally adopted the guidance.
This is how multiculturalism and political correctness works. In recent years Scotland has become one of the most PC countries in Europe, which has had the effect of stifling real debate about the failings of multiculturalism and the encroachment of the bureaucracy.
Now they can introduce an outrage such as this with impunity. I'm willing to bet that not one worker will take lunch to work and eat it at his or her desk.
Scotland the Brave? Not any more.
