HalalInnMEN_468x284.jpgLook out! Beer is being replaced by fruit juice and prayers in the country’s first booze-free Islamic pub. The Halal Inn has a juice bar, snooker tables and darts – along with a prayer room and a steam room. The proprietor says: "It’s a gathering place for people who abide by strict Islamic rulings and don’t like going to places where they serve alcohol. As a non-alcoholic venue it will appeal to Muslims more, but it is essentially for people from all backgrounds."

Fancy going there for a pint – of orange juice?I have  no problem with any venue that wants to offer customers service, but in this age of "equality legislation" surely the concept of an Islamic only pub is worth challenging?I mean, can gays work there, or is that unIslamic? How about fundamental Christians? What about….gasp…Jews? Would that be unIslamic? I think it would be discriminatory under British law to stop ANY of these people either accessing or indeed seeking employment in the Halal Inn but do YOU think the law would enforce this against the world’s most persecuted people?

  1. It’s clear from the report that anyone can go in. I have to say I think it is a great idea and good luck to them. I’d go to somewhere like that myself as a non-drinker.

    But it is another sign of a cultural change that is vast in its scale. Europe is going to become far more Islamic because of demographic change.

    The dominant idelogy right now is secularism. So when Islam and secularism clash who will win?

  2. ‘I’d go to somewhere like that myself as a non-drinker.’

    So would I but would I get in? Is there a gender bar or not. Plus the pub is a British symbol, they love it, I don’t think its a good idea to islamicize it somehow.

  3. Not sure I’d like to be a bouncer at that Halal pub though…"sorry lads, no trainers or suicide belts here"

    A gender bar would be illegal I assume. It would in Ireland. Mind you I think freedom of association is a basic right so I don’t think it should be illegal.

  5. Sometimes You Want to Go Where Everybody Knows Your Camel.

    Why not I suppose. Not my cup of tea, but folks should be free to open their idea of a pub, even a (shudder) non-alcoholic one.

  6. Oh it’s-a lonesome away from your kindred and all
    By the campfire at night we’ll hear the wild dingoes call
    But there’s-a nothing so lonesome, morbid or drear
    Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer

    Now the publican’s anxious for the quota to come
    And there’s a far away look on the face of the bum
    The maid’s gone all cranky and the cook’s acting queer
    Oh what a terrible place is a pub with no beer

    Then the stockman rides up with his dry dusty throat
    He breasts up to the bar and pulls a wad from his coat
    But the smile on his face quickly turns to a sneer
    As the barman says sadly the pub’s got no beer

    Then the swaggie comes in smothered in dust and flies
    He throws down his roll and rubs the sweat from his eyes
    But when he is told, he says what’s this I hear
    I’ve trudged fifty flamin’ miles to a pub with no beer

    Now there’s a dog on the v’randa, for his master he waits
    But the boss is inside drinking wine with his mates
    He hurries for cover and he cringes in fear
    It’s no place for a dog ’round a pub with no beer

    And old Billy the blacksmith, the first time in his life
    Why he’s gone home cold sober to his darling wife
    He walks in the kitchen, she says you’re early Bill dear
    But then he breaks down and tells her the pub’s got no beer

    Oh it’s hard to believe that there’s customers still
    But the money’s still tinkling in the old ancient till
    The wine buffs are happy and I know they’re sincere
    When they say they don’t care if the pub’s got no beer

    So it’s-a lonesome away from your kindred and all
    By the campfire at night we’ll hear the wild dingoes call
    But there’s-a nothing so lonesome, morbid or drear-…..(Traditional song).

  7. Mark Steyn has picked up on this story and reminded us of his prediction for Europe In his book America Alone

    In France, the Catholic churches will become mosques; in England, the village pubs will cease serving alcohol; in the Netherlands, the gay nightclubs will close up shop and relocate to San Francisco.

    Political pundits like racing tipsters stand or fall by the accuracy of their predictions. Steyn has been called alarmist. Maybe it’s time to be alarmed.

    Henry, If you think that’s good, I once predicted that all the peoples of Europe would one day be speaking Irish. And look – there are already a few speakers in Holland, Denmark and Germany!
