A local Muslim leader has defended the use of halal food after a fast-food restaurant was criticised for dropping a popular item from its menu.
A customer was angered when she tried to order four KFC "Quadwraps" — chicken and bacon in a tortilla — at the chain's Centre Retail Park, Royton, branch - only to be told it no longer sold them becvause it was one of 100 branches selling halal-prepared meat only.
Fazal Rahim, Oldham Interfaith Forum co-ordinator, said: "Bacon is something Muslims and Jews have in common. They won't consume bacon or use any derivative of it.
