Muslims refuse to use alcohol-based hand gels over religious beliefs

Without inviting cynical remarks, the fact of the matter is that there are tens of millions of responsible Muslims that abide by Sharia law--which prohibits the use of alcohol.

And the fact of the matter is that non-alcohol hand sanitizers are not only equally if not more effective and obviously safer when compared to alcohol-based products, but the alcohol-free, rinse-free products are readily available, highly affordable, and a continuously growing number of experts (not including government officials that tend to lag the general population when it comes to smart, efficient and pragmatic ideas) are embracing 'quats' as a hand sanitizer option.
