Lloyds TSB discriminates against Non-Muslims: Boycott Lloyds TSB

For years now the National Front has been highlighting the blatant double standards that are ever present in today’s society. I have included many posts on this blog about positive discrimination, and now I have another example.

It was revealed yesterday in the Daily Mail that many Lloyds TSB customers are being hit with charges of up to an extortionate £200 a month if they go into the red- however, if you are a Muslim who use this bank, you will only get charged a mere £15.

Lloyds TSB set up a special Islamic Bank account which allows Muslims to stay faithful to their religion. Sharia Law (Islamic Law) does not permit the payment of interest so the typical Islamic account at Lloyds TSB has been set up without a Overdraft facility.

If a Muslim customer tries to withdraw more money than he has in his account, then it is blocked and a “return fee” is charged. With a few Islamic accounts such payment is authorised and an “unplanned overdraft fee” of £15 is then levied. The bank claims this to be a management fee, not a payment of interest, so that it does not contradict Islamic Law.

However, if a non-Muslim customer with a standard current account goes into the red by at least £100 without it being authorised are hit with an “unplanned overdraft fee” of £20 a day for a max of ten days. This could mean that a non-Muslim could be made to pay £200 in one month.

Basically, those who have a non-Islamic account are subsidizing those with an Islamic account. Which in my opinion would be illegal if the shoe was on the other foot. If Christians were given such preferential treatment, I am sure there would be an outcry from the left about discrimination and maybe even prosecution of Lloyds TSB managers.

Britain must stop pussy footing around Muslims. As long as they are here (which I hope will not be for much longer) they should integrate and accept the this country works. If they don’t like it, they can feel free to leave at any time.
