UK: market trader banned from having a stall selling Knights Templar coffee mugs in case they upset Muslims

A market trader has been banned from having a stall after selling Knights Templar coffee mugs – in case they upset Muslims. Tina Gayle, 57 was ordered to remove the £6 mugs from her stall after Charnwood Borough Council received a complaint they were offensive, metro.co.uk reports.

When she refused to do so she was sent a letter and informed she had been given an outright ban.

I haven’t had a single complaint from a Muslim and I’ve had many browse my stall. The complainant said they were offensive because the Knights Templar killed Muslims in the crusades 710 years ago,” she said.
