Mohammad Faisal said it is his ‘religious right’ to wash his feet in the bathroom sink saying, ‘it’s about being respectful to my religion’ as controversy brews over a sign banning Muslim staff from washing their feet in city office public sinks before their daily prayers.

If he feels this strongly, why not bring a bucket and wash his feet outside.

 Daily Mail reported that an anonymous building worker had sparked outrage by placing a sign on the men’s bathroom door of a Sydney city office block in an attempt to ban Muslims from washing their feet in the sink before their daily prayers.

The sign, which has a cartoon of a man with one of his feet in a sink and surrounded by a circle with a slash through it, was placed on the door of the men’s toilet of an office block on Pitt Street, in Sydney’s business district.

The sign is believed to have gone up on Wednesday, just days after a building worker queried one of the shop workers who use the toilet.

Mohammad Faisal, a business student who works 20 hours a week in the convenience store, told Daily Mail Australia that Dhuhr and Asr – two of the five daily prayers required by his religion – fall during his 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. shift at the shop.

He said that, as was the custom, he washed his hands, his mouth, his head and his neck, as well as his arms, and then placed his feet one at a time into one of the men’s rooms’ two sinks.

Faisal’s manager told his superior, who then contacted Muslim community advocate Zaky Mallah, out of outrage for the building employee’s alleged attempt to prevent working Muslims from using the sink for their ablutions.

“This country has freedom of speech but that cartoon is racist and it is taking freedom of expression too far,” Mallah said. “When was it a crime to wash up in a men’s room for Muslim prayers? It happens everywhere around the world. When Muslims want to perform their five daily prayers they have to go and wash up. And it would be happening around Australia every day for Muslim men, and women too. Possibly this man [who put up the cartoon] thought he was being funny, but this is a ridiculous joke and it is intimidating people going about daily business.”

He said that, as was the custom, he washed his hands, his mouth, his head and his neck, as well as his arms, and then placed his feet one at a time into one of the men’s rooms’ two sinks.
