Notice that the introduction of halal food has meant in some cases the total banning of pork. In other words, non-Muslims must have their choices restricted in order to make Muslims feel comfortable. Also, the schools are being called upon to make Western-style halal food: halal burgers, etc. All in the name of equality, of course. From the BBC, with thanks to Susan:
The issue of making sure Muslim children can choose halal food at school has been put under the spotlight by politicians in Cardiff.
Halal is the description of food and drink allowed for Muslims under Islamic dietary laws.
On Thursday, Cardiff council debated a Plaid Cymru motion demanding schools offer a fuller range of lunches.
The motion was not carried, but an amended version was passed, calling for a report on the issue to be compiled.
Cardiff council argues it offers one of the broadest services in Wales.
The local council says it already gives its schools the option of a range of halal food.
It is then up to individual headteachers and governors to say how much they want, depending on how much pupils ask for.
This can vary between a total ban on pork in some schools to the option of halal burgers in others.
Mother Jacqueline Maria Haque said it was very important for Muslim children to have halal foods, as they can go hungry if they are not given a halal choice.
“They do give halal foods in school, but not every day – they give vegetables, which not all children like,” she said.
“They would like western foods – like burgers, sausages and nuggets.”
