A Muslim family was kicked out of petting zoo after customers began to feel uncomfortable of what they were doing.
A Muslim family decided to go to a petting zoo which is generally a child oriented place aimed at fun for the entire family. The fun ended when the Muslims decided they needed to pray to Allah.
Huub van Leijsen, the owner of petting zoo Pukkemuk in Dongen, Netherlands has worked hard to provide quality family entertainment and he has the right to make policies for his business. But the Muslims disagree.
According to Van Leijsen, he noticed kids getting anxious in the petting zoo about an hour after the Muslim family arrived and realized that the family started praying. “I tried to explain that Pukkemuk is not a house of prayer, but a playground for children. Children have the leading role and I do everything I can to make things go their way as much as possible.” he said in the statement.
Bucking political correctness, the owner immediately threw the family out of the zoo — but that didn’t stop the Muslims from immediately screeching “Islamophobia.”
The family, Bilal Salam, his three sisters-in-law, two other men and eleven children, accused him of being a Muslim hater. “I said that I do not hate Muslims. Praying in burqas in a petting zoo in the middle of playing children was an unpleasant experience for some of my guests.”
Van Leijsen also denies that he simply kicked the family out. “I did not put them out. I asked them to ‘not stay too long’. This because of the reactions of my other guests.” He is not happy with the video of the incident circulating on the internet. “I was filmed against my will and without my consent. An image was created of me and my business that does not match reality.”
Of course the Muslims have pressed discrimination charges against Van Leijsen. The authorities will look into whether the petting zoo will be prosecuted.
Of course, this is yet another example of Muslims bullying non-Muslims, then suing when they don’t get their way. Islamic prayer has definitive timing, so this family could have easily scheduled their petting zoo trip around their prayer, if it’s really that crucial. However, they chose to be at this particular location during the time of their prayer, most likely intentionally.
The Salam family deliberately brewed the perfect situation for them to scream “bigotry” if anyone objected to their actions, knowing that ignorant non-Muslims like Huub and the justice system would have no clue that Muslims are able to make up missed prayers at a later time if needed.
The five daily prayers are actually flexible, unbeknownst to many non-Muslims. If a Muslim misses one by accident, they must only ask forgiveness and say the prayer as soon as conveniently possible. If they are forced to miss one because of work, school, or other understandable hindrances, they only need to say that prayer when they get a moment to do so.
These Muslims took Huub and the Netherlands for fools, playing on the country’s unconditional tolerance to destroy tolerance of everyone else. Unfortunately, Islam uses freedom and democracy to obliterate freedom and democracy, and it’s only a matter of time before we’ve tolerated our own demise.
