UK Muslims warned: don’t drink poisonous ‘holy’ water

British Muslims are being warned that criminal gangs are operating a multi-million pound illegal racket selling them fake holy water wrongly labelled as having come from Mecca. The black market trade in fake ‘Zam Zam’ water – named after the 14ft-deep well in the holy city in Saudi Arabia from where the genuine substance flows – is becoming a serious concern for health officials.
