  • Toilets Facing Mecca

    I was listening to talk radio today and the host read from a publication that at a prison in the UK officials were re-locating the toilets because they face Mecca and it is against Islamic law to go to the bathroom facing that direction. He went on to say this move was based on complaints from Muslim inmates and that the work will come at tax payers expense to appease the inmates.
    I have not been able to confirm this story. Have any of you heard about this?

      That's so freaking PC of them. If the muslims dont like it TOO BAD they shouldnt be in there to begin with. If they appease them whats next? There maid because its the order of ISLAM. This PC garbage has to stop.

        Tell 'em to leave the toilets facing Mecca and tell the inmates to sit sideways or something. Problem solved.
        If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

          Because we all know that if you turn your back the Lord can't see you pee.

              I have been to Saudi and thinking back....we had crappers facing all sorts of directions...and at least one of them had to be facing Mecca and now seemed to mind over there.....

                  Speaking of, wouldn't the curve of the Earth mean that one is not facing Mecca unless they are within a certain mile range? And if Mecca is East, then at what point do they consider Mecca West of their location? If your North or South of Mecca is it still considered an East West thing?

                  The same as tossing salt over your shoulder in my opinion.

                    You're right - depend on the distance to the horizon, etc. Otherwise, you're facing outer space.

                      Oh, lets get some of our UK members to describe their "open prisons". The US cops will not belive them!
                      And a UK chief decided that he could not release photos of some escapees, becuse it might violate thier human rights!

                      I think they need Sherrif Joe ASrpio from Maricopa County AZ over there!

                        I fail to see the link between toilets facng Mecca and open prisons.

                        Open prisons are minimal security prisons for low risk petty offenders, that intend to rehabilitate via working on farm duties etc.
                        Should somebody breach this trust placed upon them they would not qualify again and would be put in a higher security jail.
                        On the whole, people who receive a sentence at an open prison do not jeapordise their position by escaping.

                          Toilets

                          I guess it was okay for the prisoners to commit crimes facing mecca??

                          But they can't do their business facing mecca?

                              In their own countries, they don't even have toilets as we know it. They sh*t in a hole in the ground. Personally, I'd give em what they're used to. If they don't like it, they can always go home (after serving their sentence) can't they? Oh, and if there are any left-wing "do gooders" reading this post, you know what you can do don't you???
