London, Apr 14 (ANI): A Muslim taxi driver in Britain has been sacked after he refused a family permission to carry an unopened bottle of wine into his car because it went against his religion.
The cab driver kicked out Adrian Cartwright, 46, his wife and young daughter during a journey to an Indian restaurant, after he spotted an unopened bottle of white wine.
Cartwright later wrote about the incident in detail on Facebook, prompting the driver's Asian-run taxi firm to sack him, Express.co.uk reports.
"We all got inside the car and the driver said: 'Is that alcohol?' When I said 'yes' he replied: 'I am sorry but I can't allow it in my cab - it's against my religion," Cartwright wrote on the social networking site.
"I knew it wasn't worth arguing so we had to get out," he added.
According to the report, Cartwright complained to Borough Cars in Royton, Greater Manchester, and the self-employed cabbie was fired 30 minutes later.
The firm, a co-operative of 70 predominantly Muslim drivers, later apologised to the family. (ANI)
