Shocking:53 Muslims walked off their job in US factory due to this Reason
January 21, 2016
A manufacturing plant in Wisconsin has changed its prayer policy to prevent dozens of Muslim employees from worshiping on the job
Ariens Company, a Brillion-based maker of snow blowers and lawn mowers, used to allow the 53 Muslims who work at its headquarters plant to take two breaks a day — for five minutes at a time — to fit in their ritual prayers, according to WBAY.
But that abruptly changed Thursday, when the company sent out a statement saying it “does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production” — even for prayer.
Furious Muslim employees said they can now only fit in daily prayers during their lunch breaks, which likely do not conincide with their prayer times. Muslim scripture requires five daily prayers, each at the same times every day.
Some workers said that when they complained, their bosses handed them unemployment papers.
“If someone tells you, ‘you pray on your break,’ and the break time is not the prayer time, it will be impossible to pray,” employee Masjid Imam Hasan Abdi told WBAY.
Another employee, Adan Hurr, told the station the rule is “absolutely discrimination on its face.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations agreed, calling for a compromise in a statement Saturday.
“These types of accommodation disputes can be resolved in a spirit of respect for constitutionally-protected religious rights and for the legitimate needs of both employees and employers,” the civil rights group said.
Brillion has several locations throughout the United States, as well as Norway, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, and employs more than 1,000 people, according to LinkedIn. It’s unclear if the new prayer rule applies to all of its branches.
Liberals crying foul
As expected liberals are outraged on this and are terming it as descriminatory while the company has all the right to implement
