For more than 10 years Fortis offers a piggy bank to children after opening a Eurokids account. The piggy bank named Knorbert is the mascot of a commercial campaign touting for children to become new Fortis customers. Because “Knorbert does not meet the requirements that multicultural society dictates us” the plush piggy bank has been purged from all offices. From the side of Islam there have been several complaints about this harmless gadget. Now Fortis is contemplating about a new gift for its youngest customers which “will please children of any cultural background.”
After the halal funds stunt, Fortis once again pampers Islam. Boycott Fortis, for there are still enough banks which aren’t that indulgent to Islam!
