Original title: Cafe owner ordered to remove extractor fan because neighbour claimed 'smell of frying bacon offends Muslims'
A hard-working cafe owner has been ordered to tear down an extractor fan - because the smell of her frying bacon 'offends' Muslims. Planning bosses acted against Beverley Akciecek, 49, after being told her next-door neighbour's Muslim friends had felt 'physically sick' due to the 'foul odour'.
Councillors at Stockport Council in Greater Manchester say the smell from the fan is 'unacceptable on the grounds of residential amenity'.
The fan has been in Beverley's Snack Shack takeaway in the Shaw Heath area of the town for the past three years. Mrs Akciecek and her husband Cetin, 50, - himself a Turkish Muslim - work more than 50 hours a week buying, preparing and cooking hot and cold sandwiches and hot-pots for their customers.
Today mother-of-seven Mrs Akciecek said she plans to appeal against the decision. She said: 'I just think it's crazy. Cetin's friends actually visit the shop, they're regular visitors, they're Muslim people, they come in a couple of times a week.
'I have Muslim people come in for cheese toasties. Cetin cooks the food himself, he cooks the bacon. 'When we go to a cafe my husband wouldn't be offended by the smell of bacon. His friends are not offended by it, we have three visitors who come here for a sandwich, friends of my husband, and the smell doesn't offend them at all.
'My brother-in-law doesn't flinch if he comes and we've just taken out three trays of bacon. 'I'm going to find a local councillor. I'm waiting for the letter so I can appeal.'

Who was there first? Did the Muslim family move in knowing that they were fying bacon next door?
This happened in England!!!
Who cares what these idiots do to themselves!
the interesting thing is, if they’ve smelled it, they’ve ingested it...
if i understand their rules correctly, they’re already slated for dire consequences.............
Yeah. How do they know it’s bacon frying?
Irrelevant, indians were here first but they had to accommodate us. That’s what happens when you are being colonized and have no way to resist. I hope we introduce cannibalism to the UK and demand people give up their children to be eaten, after all multicultural tolerance should be taken to the limit./s
—Probably they are enticed by the smell.
This reminds me of the recent case on the east coast between the hamburger place and the lawfirm and the hamburger place is now shut down. This krap has to stop!
It’s not illegal to offend someone. One person does not a “group” make.
Body odor and the Muslim call to prayer offends and makes me sick.
Go be offended somewhere else. Or find a place where your not offended, like say, Iran.
This was not an action brought by Muslims, or on behalf of Muslims. A neighbor of the shop complained of the smell, saying that it made him feel sick, and in addition his “Muslim friends” didn’t want to visit him because of the smell.
The ruling was on the grounds of “residential amenity” in respect to the neighbors complaint.
More insanity from Islam. This is getting crazy
Double the volume of bacon fried. If there were a combo bacon/pepper spray on the market I’d buy it.
What a place to open up a ribs restaurant!
they can claim ‘it just stinks’, but...by that time, they already have a BIG problem as dictated by their ‘religion’.
Makes you want to fire up the oil drum cooker for some pork butts and baby backs.
