Business Development Manager Rashad Akhtar of High Wycombe went into his local Burger King. He saw the lid of their ice cream cone with a design that is supposed to be a stylized soft serve ice cream swirl. He saw a major similarity to the symbol for Allah and believes that Burger King is threatening a “jihad.” He felt that it was Sacrilegious.
He is quoted as saying: “This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims.”
As a result Burger King has recalled all their ice cream cones in the UK, and is spending thousands of pounds now to redesign the lid.
This world has just become far too sensitive!
