Danish school punished for forcing Muslim woman to eat pork

A Danish court fined a culinary school for forcing a Muslim woman to taste pork as part of her studies, Turkey’s Anadolu Agency reported Monday.
The 24-year-old student, who was studying at Holstebro Culinary School, was asked to taste the food she cooked like other students.
But the dishes which contained pork, prohibited for Muslims in line with Islamic teachings, pushed the girl to abstain.
The school was fined 40,000 Danish krone ($6,000) after the student, who was not named, filed a complaint against the establishment saying that she was being discriminated on religious grounds.
The student, who moved to Denmark from Libya at a very young age, said she was informed that pork and wine would be in the recipes but not that trying prepared dishes was compulsory.
