Alison Waldock Dinner Lady Row: Muslim Parents Speak Out Over 'Gammongate'
by Mehdi Hasan
The parents of a Muslim child at the centre over a row about a dinner lady who says she was sacked for serving pork to the seven-year-old have spoken out for the first time about the incident.
Speaking exclusively to the Huffington Post UK, the girl's parents, Zahid and Rumana Darr, claim that there had been repeated accusations against the dinner lady, both by Muslim and vegetarian parents, and that neither they nor their daughter should be blamed for the subsequent sacking.
Dinner lady Alison Waldock has said she accidentally gave Khadija Darr gammon at Queen Edith Primary School in Godwin Way after the youngster pointed to the dish on the lunch menu. But Khadija's parents have challenged Ms Waldock's account of the incident.
