Muslim sues Tesco over beer carrying drillSeptember 29th, 2008 - 7:23 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept.29 (ANI): A Muslim warehouse worker is suing Tesco for racial discrimination as he had to carry crates of beer on his forklift truck. According to The Sun, Saudi-born Mohammed Ahmed, 32, told an employment tribunal it offended his beliefs.
He claimed he did not realize the supermarket giant sold alcohol when he took the job at a depot in Lichfield, Staffs.
Ahmed, of Normanton, Derby, said he was harassed after making a complaint, and later quit.
I am asking for my rights, Ahmed said. Tesco denies his claims. A ruling is due this week. (ANI)
