Council officials in Greater Manchester told Beverley Akcicek, 49, the smells were "unacceptable," in her cafe where she and her Muslim husband serve bacon. The fan emits the smell of frying bacon, and it offends some Muslims who have complained.
Beverley runs theÂ Snack Shack takeaway with her Turkish Muslim husband Cetin who is 50-years-old, according toÂ The Sun.Â
The smell doesn't offend everyone, and some like it, but because it offends some Muslims this small business owner must either stop serving bacon or install a new fan that doesn't offend Muslim noses.
While this may sound a bit funny, it's no laughing matter to the owners of this small cafe. It is a problem, because no one would want to smell bacon if it makes them sick, but maybe they need to move, and not the business which has been there with its fan for years. The problem is bacon smells, but to force a business to stop cooking it is ridiculous.
