FUNpark in GB- muslimday only for muslims

 only Muslims will be  invited

    By GUY PATRICK  and ANDY RUSSELL(shortet version)

BRITAIN’S biggest fun park has sparked a race row — with a  MUSLIMS-ONLY day.

Up to 28,000 are expected at Alton Towers on September 17 when there  will be no music,
instead there will be prayer areas, Muslim stalls and all food served  will be HALAL.

Organisers Islamic Leisure have billed it the First National Muslim  Fun Day and tickets can only be bought through their website
Non-Muslims phoning the Staffordshire park have been refused  tickets.
One, George Hughes, 19, who rang up for 15 tickets for a pal’s  birthday, said: “I couldn’t believe it.
“It’s the only day we can go, yet I can’t because I’m not Muslim. Christians are not allowed to go there. Can  you imagine all the fuss if there was a Christians-only day?”
George, of Crayford, Kent, added: “My Muslim friends think it’s  outrageous.
“What’s the world coming to when people are being banned from flying  the St George’s flag yet this sort of day is allowed? If it must be held,  then why not on a weekday rather than a busy weekend?”
The event is widely promoted on the internet and the Muslim Public  Affairs Committee declared it “exclusively for our brothers and  sisters”.

 “What next . . . an all Muslims shopping day out in  the Trafford Centre in Manchester?”

Project of integration. 
“We’re trying to get Muslims to go to this day because they wouldn’t  normally go somewhere like Alton Towers. We’re trying to integrate Muslims  into the wider community. People can come down and see the way we live. It  will be a peaceful family environment.”
Alton Towers said any organisation could hire the park for a  day.

A spokeswoman for Alton Towers confirmed, that tickets for the day were now available only through  Islamic Leisure. And Alton Towers would promote the fact that the day had  been booked.
She added: “As a general rule, there will be no admission on the day to  guests who have not booked through the organisation in  advance.”,,2-2006300314,00.html
