Muslim driver dumps passengers for carrying wine bottle, fired

Saturday April 14, 2012 09:37:46 PM, IANS

London: A Muslim taxi driver in Britain has been fired after he threw out a family carrying an unopened bottle of wine saying "it's against my religion".

Adrian Cartwright, 46, had hired the taxi to take his family out for dinner at an Indian restaurant near Oldham, Greater Manchester.

But before they could make the five-minute journey, the driver, in his 20s, spotted the bottle of white wine and promptly refused to take them, the Daily Mail reported Saturday. The family was turfed out onto the pavement and he drove off.

On his Facebook page, a furious Cartwright wrote: "The meal I had that evening was a Halal meal, whose methods I don't agree with, but tolerate out of respect.

"I expect anyone offering a public service to do the same, and will be contacting the licensing department to suggest that the driver is politely asked to do so, or hand his badge back."

He also complained to the driver's employer Borough Taxis, who have around 70 Muslim drivers, and within half an hour he was sacked.
