Muslims are usually quite fussy buggers when it comes to food what they can and can’t eat. Pork is off the menu as is any other produce that hasn’t been sacrificed to the moon God Allah which is deemed non halal. Yet Muslim Anayatula Karemi owner of Peter Pans takeaway in Salford wasn’t concerned about the non halal germ spreading insects festering in the bowls of pizza toppings when trading standards paid him a visit. Then again it’s not disgusting bone idle Karemi and his Muslims associates that would have been risking catching something nasty having to eat the poor excuse for food they serve up. That will be infidel families who ring up for a delivery for their children’s tea or drunk infidels who buy something on their way home from a night out whose health is at risk
Pizzas found to be crawling with insects at Salford takeaway

Food hygiene officers also found bugs of ‘all shapes and sizes’ crawling around Peter Pan Pizza at Bury Old Road, Salford
Cockroaches swarmed in toppings at a filthy pizza takeaway held ‘under siege’ by vermin, a court heard.
Food hygiene officers also found bugs of ‘all shapes and sizes’ crawling in salads, containers of flour and baking powder, pizza-making equipment, fridges and cutlery at Peter Pan Pizza at Bury Old Road, Salford.
Droppings piled up on cooking surfaces as mice overran the squalid, grease-spattered takeaway, and yet owner Anayatula Karemi refused to hire a pest control team for weeks, saying it was ‘too expensive’. Manchester Crown Court heard that Salford council made repeated efforts to get Karemi, 25, of Hallsworth Road, Crumpsall to clean up his act.
Now, after being prosecuted for a string of food hygiene breaches, the married dad-of-four has been barred from running takeaways by a judge who branded him a ‘hopeless incompetent’.
Environmental health officers were stunned to find roaches crawling in sweetcorn used as pizza toppings after a complaint in September 2011.
Peter Horgan, prosecuting, told the court that there was a ‘heavy infestation’ of German cockroaches, which carry bacteria. Due to the risk to the public an emergency notice was issued and the premises were shut down.
After making an effort to get rid of the cockroaches using ant powder, Karemi finally called in pest controllers and the premises were allowed to re-open three weeks later.
But despite repeated visits, warnings and advice given by Salford council, the problems continued and the shop had to be shut down again last August.
Karemi, who took over the business in 2009, went on to admit 14 breaches of food hygiene regulations, but claims a business rival introduced cockroaches to the pizza shop.
John Wolfson, defending, said: “He clearly took on a business he couldn’t cope with, became saddled with debts and was not able to carry out what was required of him. It’s perhaps good fortune no one was actually poisoned.”
Judge Andrew Gilbart QC ordered Karemi, who has previous convictions for fire breaches, to serve a 12-month community order, with 170 hours’ unpaid work, and £1,000 costs.
Making an order which prohibits Karemi from operating or managing any food business indefinitely, the judge said: “It’s quite apparent there was no proper system for cleaning or looking after the premises.
“I have come to the view you are a hopeless incompetent.
“The fact is you’re not safe to be allowed near a food business.”
