He had banned all Pakistanis from dining there unless accompanied by a foreigner or had a dual passport. Locals brought this issue to Police and Police raided the restaurant. Restaurant's owner Lafforgue said that he had to ban Pakistanis because serving alcohol to Muslims is illegal while it's legal to serve 'non-Muslim' foreigners.
