Muslim Wants ‘Compensation’ For Eating Pork, McDonald’s Stands Firm

After ordering an Egg McMuffin from McDonald’s, a Muslim man bit into his sandwich only to discover that he’d mistakenly eaten sausage. However, when he demanded “financial compensation” from the fast-food giant, he didn’t receive the response he expected.

Having gone his entire life without violating the Islamic prohibition of pork consumption, 49-year-old UK resident Fida Hussain ordered his usual Egg McMuffin from a McDonald’s in Birmingham. Moments after he chomped down on his breakfast sandwich, however, he realized that he had just violated one of the core principals of his religion.

For a practicing Muslim, there seems to be an Islamic tenet for every aspect of life. Whether it involves hygiene, dress, and especially diet, the Quran and Hadith have specific guidelines that dictate the daily routines of millions of Muslims living in non-Muslim countries.

Hussain took a hearty bite out of his McMuffin, discovering to his horror that the sandwich contained pork sausage. He told the media that, despite purchasing an Egg and Cheese McMuffin, hashbrown, and coffee every morning from the establishment, he was “devastated” to learn that he had received the wrong order this time.

“I trusted them,” he told BirminghamLive. “I was watching Judge Judy and bit into the McMuffin and knew instantly when I tasted it that it was meat. The taste was horrible, I knew straightaway and spat it out. It’s just completely wrong. It’s a sensitive subject, it could happen to anyone, vegan or if a person is on a particular diet.”

Hussain immediately returned to the eatery and confronted a male and a female supervisor, who he says directed him to submit a complaint online. However, it was the management’s alleged final response that left the Muslim customer fuming. Hussain claims that McDonald’s told him that the situation was considered resolved since he had already accepted a replacement meal when he initially brought the matter to the location’s attention.

“The woman tried to tell me ‘can we keep it quiet and deal with it in store’ but obviously I was not happy at all,” Hussain said. “I am a practising Muslim with a nice, long beard and proud of it so they knew. I’ve kept myself away from it (pork) all my life.”
