‘Jumbo supermarkets are Islamising’ Shopping giant under fire for BANNING Father Christmas

A SUPERMARKET has sparked anger for banning images of FATHER CHRISTMAS at the same time as it launched items celebrating an Islamic feast day.


The ‘Jumbo’ chain has revealed it will no longer allow any images of Saint Nicholas on packages of traditional festival candies and delicacies of its own brand.

The crackdown surrounds the December 5 Dutch tradition of giving children presents and sweets.

Outspoken leader of the far-right Party for Freedom in the Netherlands, Geert Wilders blasted the chain saying they had “completely lost their mind”.

The move in the Netherlands raises fears that shops in the UK could follow suit. In 2014, fast food giant Subway removed ham and bacon from almost 200 outlets and switched to halal meat alternatives in an attempt to please its Muslim customers.

The latest controversial move comes after the supermarket banned Saint Nicholas’ helper Black Pete from packaging after complaints of negative stereotyping and racism.

But this year, the chain has gone one step further and also banned images of the bearded saint from whom Santa Claus is derived.
