UK Amusement Park to Host "Muslim-Only" Day
    #5818122 - 07/04/06 01:03 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

By GUY PATRICK
and ANDY RUSSELL
BRITAIN’S biggest fun park has sparked a race row — with a MUSLIMS-ONLY day.

Up to 28,000 are expected at Alton Towers on September 17 when there will be no music, booze or gambling.

Instead there will be prayer areas, Muslim stalls and all food served will be HALAL.

Organisers Islamic Leisure have billed it the First National Muslim Fun Day and tickets can only be bought through their website.

Non-Muslims phoning the Staffordshire park have been refused tickets.

One, George Hughes, 19, who rang up for 15 tickets for a pal’s birthday, said: “I couldn’t believe it.


“It’s the only day we can go, yet I can’t because I’m not Muslim. Can you imagine all the fuss if there was a Christians-only day?”

George, of Crayford, Kent, added: “My Muslim friends think it’s outrageous.

“What’s the world coming to when people are being banned from flying the St George’s flag yet this sort of day is allowed? If it must be held, then why not on a weekday rather than a busy weekend?”

The event is widely promoted on the internet and the Muslim Public Affairs Committee declared it “exclusively for our brothers and sisters”.

But some Muslims have condemned the idea. One university student on a Muslim website forum said: “It’s hardly encouraging integration.”

Another said: “What next . . . an all Muslims shopping day out in the Trafford Centre in Manchester?”

Abid Hussan of Islamic Leisure insisted the day was open to all faiths, although Islamic laws would apply.

He added: “There will be no smoking, no alcohol and halal food only.

“We’re trying to get Muslims to go to this day because they wouldn’t normally go somewhere like Alton Towers. We’re trying to integrate Muslims into the wider community. People can come down and see the way we live. It will be a peaceful family environment.”

Alton Towers said any organisation could hire the park for a day.

A spokeswoman said “We make no distinction regarding sexuality, religious, ethnic or lifestyle choices.”

She confirmed tickets for the day were now available only through Islamic Leisure. And Alton Towers would promote the fact that the day had been booked.

She added: “As a general rule, there will be no admission on the day to guests who have not booked through the organisation in advance.”[/qoute]


Now, my complaint isn't that their is such a day, it's a private transaction between two private entities. I'm just noticing how England is falling down farther into the trap of 'multiculturalism' and Muslim appeasement. not to mention the reaction that we see from the media would be very different if their were a "White Only" or "Christian Only" day.

Just a FYI, so when we look back on the lost glory of the Western World, we can see some signposts along the path.

Things that make you go, "hmmmm." The whole world now know a good date and place for a bunch of IEDs to go off... Northern European Style. Will the godless heathens respond like those from 'a religion of peace?' I'm laying odds that they won't, but then I'm a godless heathen too.

yea, I'd be interested to see what happens if a few of the more radical members of , say, the BNP decided to go "ride fixing"the night before.

US Theme parks, like Six Flags, have Christian Family days frequently. What's wrong with a faith based group hiring a privately run amusement park?

As for what seems like death wishing on the children and families that may attend, thats just plain sick.

There are plenty of signposts, though it is quite a stretch to count this as one. Seems quite insignificant to me.

Well, I'm a Lefty too but it makes perfect sense to me. The park is a private enterprise, just like a restaurant, and just like a restaurant it lets itself be rented by large groups.

Such is the case here. If the shroomery had rented the place then only members and sympathizers are allowed.

And it makes perfect sense for muslims. They as a group take offence at alcohol and tobacco, and the foods they are allowed to eat have to be specially prepared. This allows people who would otherwise not go access to an amusement park and if you think about it for a minute it's a good thing to expose muslim immigrants to amusement parks: it promotes integration and shows them that the "other side" of the polarisation isn't half bad.

And being muslim by no means is a racial thing: many British muslims are native British, but adopted the religion as their own.

I think the main problem lies in the double standard of our PC world. It is white people, and white people alone who have to shift their beliefs/rituals/behaviors in order to accomidate non-whites.

Can you imagine the uproar if this park held a white only day, and don't give me that crap that its about religion and not race. Show me some white or non-Arab/black Muslims who would be welcome at this event, and I will retract that statement.

I am just getting sick of all this pandering to non-whites because we are so afraid of offending them, in our own lands!! All I want is equal rights for everyone, not special treatment if you happen to be born non-white.

BTW happy holidays to you this December, as we all know, to say Merry Christmas is downright offensive  :rolleyes:

it's private property. let them do what they want.

most western countries should greatly reduce admitting immigrants from predominantly muslim countries. buying out a theme park for a day is one thing, but these people also vote. we have enough religious nuts as it is, and europe's growing muslim immigrant population doesn't seem to be doing it much good.

Muslims are not a race, and I imagine that a Muslim group rented time at the amusement park. It is not "special treatment".

There are plenty white Muslims in Britain, they generally move from places like Bosnia, Albania, Kosova, Bulgaria, Western Turkey and Russia.

I am just getting sick of all this pandering to non-whites because we are so afraid of offending them, in our own lands!! All I want is equal rights for everyone, not special treatment if you happen to be born non-white.

It has nothing to do with pandering to 'non-whites' its a private booking, paid for by private faith based organizations. As such, I would be about as welcome as I and my mates would be at your wedding for example.

Yes, I know that, but how many do you think of these types will be welcomed at this event?????

Okay, again I will say, the problem lies with in the double standard. What would happen if there was a "White person only" day at this theme park. It would be sued for racism, and its owners probably thrown in jail for hate crimes. Even though its a PRIVATE company.

If someone can find out whether this time was rented out, or being offered by the park, I would appreciate it.

The park will be closed to guests paying on the day later this year, as a Muslim company has bought the park for the day.

Tickets for the day in question, Saturday 17th September, are only on sale from Islamic Leisure - a company describing themselves as "an up and coming leisure provider in the UK focusing on the needs of the Muslim community".
