 British Muslim Pharmacist Let Off With a Warning Due to His ‘Restrictive Muslim Background’

A Muslim pharmacist in Britain who was being tried for a crude remark made to his female colleagues was given a strict warning by a court after claiming that he had no idea that he had caused any offence as he came from a restrictive Muslim background.

Khalil Jamil had asked one of the women about her favourite love-making position and quizzed another about the mating habits of her horses.

However, the General Pharmaceutical Council ruled his behaviour was not sexually motivated and accepted that his background in a strict Muslim community meant that he was unfamiliar with working in such an open environment with women.

"He felt the source of this behaviour, was that he comes from a very restrictive background, with little social life, and none at all outside of his own community. He lacked social skills, and had little knowledge of how one should be when working with colleagues," the Daily Mail quoted a panel member, as saying.

"Although we do not find the registrant impaired, we have the ability to issue a warning, and given the circumstances of this case, we believe it is necessary to do so," he added.
