Today’s news:

Racism not a role over halal market

TimesLedger Newspapers

I was disturbed that Sheraz Kahn, owner of the Super Halal meat market, said that our protest was aimed at his establishment because of his ethnicity. How ridiculous! There is a supermarket just three blocks west of his place, owned by people of his nationality which, when opened, had a community problem concerning double parking in front of his store. He quickly remedied the situation and has been a good neighbor ever since.

Our only interest is the preservation of our community and all who choose to live here. We have no desire to harass him or anyone else. Everyone should adhere to the codes concerning health, building permits and the general welfare in the community they choose to do business.

After all, a food market has an obligation to protect the safety and good health of the families that will patronize it. It must furnish its clientele with healthful, uncontaminated products — especially when families with children are their customers.

This store needs to be shut down. I live up the block. It is disgusting. It smells horrible. The people are rude and inconsiderate and it's in the way (traffic).
