Should we stop calling tikka masala, butter chicken, Madras curry powder, etc., as Indian?
most Indian restaurants in the UK nowadays are actually Bangladeshi.
.....but no objection to Muslim Bangladeshis selling alcohol......
Not so. Indian-owned restaurants have been a feature of British cuisine since the early days of empire, and the brewing industry is well established in India. Bangladeshi establishments seem to be a more recent phenomenon, many of which started as takeaways and low-budget cafes with no liquor licence. "Bring your own" can apply if the owner does not hold a personal licence to sell alcohol, and simplifies security and record-keeping, so it's a possible startup route.
