Lloyds Bank drops overdraft fee on Islamic accounts, charges non-Muslims


 

What is next? Money laundering for Great Britain’s new best friends?

Lloyds Bank has been accused of religious discrimination after offering free overdraft accounts to Muslims.

The bank sent customers a booklet this month explaining new charges.

 

While many will have to pay up to £80 a month if they go into the red, Muslims were told they would escape the charges. The document said: “We are removing the monthly overdraft management fee of £6 from our Islamic Account, Islamic Student Account and Islamic Graduate Account. So, if you use an unplanned overdraft on these accounts, there won’t be any charges.”

The Islamic account was set up by the High Street bank to attract Muslim customers by allowing them to keep faithful to their religion.

A Lloyds spokesman said Islamic accounts were intended for customers who cannot receive or pay interest under sharia, but were available to anyone, regardless of their faith. More at

    Financial institutions are schmoozing up to Moslems because these people are rich beyond anyone’s imaginings. No, these banks do not charge Moslems interest, but they are making bazillions in interest by simply using Moslem money to make even more for themselves. It is, after all, the reason banks are in business to begin with. But “we the people” can choose not to do business with Sharia-compliant banks, right? The hard part is finding a bank that isn’t Sharia-compliant.

      One thing we know for sure, the Brits not boycott the bank. With the exception of Margarita Thatcher’s administration they have managed to support the not so Great Britain wide welfare state with its welcome mat laid out for all third world denizens. Stay tuned as we may very well see an Islamic PM during our lifetime.

    How long before the IRS recognizes payroll taxes deducted from muslims paychecks as a violation of Sharia Law? How long before genital mutilation falls under the women’s right to healthcare umbrella? How long before the hijab becomes School girls required wardrobe accessory? May we venture to speculate in the not too distant future?

    So, if I become a Brit and a convert, I can keep my overdraft charges? (being sarcastic). Brittius is correct, “Hmmmmmmmm…”
