Unclean! Unclean!

Dr. Weevil muses:
Powerline and other sites have been covering the story about Muslim employees at Minnesota Target stores refusing to ring up pork products. I’m wondering if it would be possible to get the message of tolerance across to the Muslim community with a tit-for-tat demonstration. Surely Target has a few Hindu employees. Could they be permitted or even encouraged to refuse to ring up beef for Muslim customers, just for a week or two, to make a point? I’m guessing that a town like Minneapolis has a fair percentage of vegetarians, too, including some of the stricter Hindus, and that some of them work at Target. Could they refuse to sell beef, chicken, and lamb to Muslim customers, again just for a week or two?
This is an idea whose time has come. Imagine:

environmentalist auto mechanics refusing to work on SUVs;
Zero Population Growth activists refusing to serve pregnant women;
Mailmen who support animal neutering refusing deliveries to homes harboring toms with scrotum intactum;
Barbers for Gay Rights refusing haircuts for married men;
Feminists refusing to do any damn thing for anyone at all.

There are real possibilities here.
