UK school apologizes for serving bacon sandwiches to Muslim pupils


UK school apologizes for serving bacon sandwiches to Muslim pupils
A school in Birmingham, England, was forced to apologise after they accidently served sandwiches, made with bacon, to Muslim students.
Under Islamic law, Muslims are strictly forbidden from eating pork.
According to a UK publication, the incident came to light when a Muslim teacher took a bite of a sandwich, which was supposed to contain halal chicken and sweet corn, and realized that that the smoky thing she was tasting was actually pork, the New York Daily News reported.
Later, the principal of Ninestiles School, Chris Quinn, blamed the blunder on "human error" and called it an "unfortunate mistake."
The teacher told the publication that when she looked inside the sandwich, she was horrified to find that there were pieces of what she thought were ham.
She said that she felt physically repulsed, adding, that she had never eaten pork before and couldn't believe she was eating it by mistake at school, where a significant number of the student body is Muslim.
