    Why didn't they just explain to the "gentleman" that no, it's not a mosque. It's a museum which was once a Church.

    If I went on my cities train company facebook page and wrote how I am offended by fat people sitting next to me, you would call me a ******** and not "going about things in a very diplomatic and correct manner".

    Not to mention, I have been inside the Sofia Hagia, it's not even a mosque...He knew full well that he would have an easy time with this ****.
    But we don't know whether he knew that for sure, which is why I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt

    If you did that, I wouldn't call you disgusting. It's your own opinion, that's fine~

    We know why, it wasn't out of respect and it wasn't to increase their costumer base.

    It was out of fear. Every single public service provider has the same fear, those that don't accept that offending these people is taboo end up like those poor people in France.

    If they say jump, you ask how many somersaults should you perform......

    German supermarket chain Aldi Sud: “We are sorry to have offended you with the design – please rest assured this was not at all our intention. The product will be removed from sale shortly”

    Apart from the fact that this complaint is, once again, pathetic and little more than utterly embarrassing for the person who filed it, the Hagia Sophia was constructed by Christians as a church, a function it served for over 900 years, it was then converted into a mosque and for the last decades has served as a museum. So it's not a mosque.

    I don't know what's more pathetic, the fact that this guy bothered to complain or the fact that Aldi acquiesced.
    It sets a precedent that this sort of idiotic 'offence-taking' and pathetic pandering to it is okay.

    I don't know why people blame Islam and immigrants and not your Zionist occupied Marxist governments.

    Because a member of Government, Marxist Zionist or otherwise, did not moan about some soap. A muslim did.
