Denmark: School fined for telling Muslim to 'taste' pork
A Danish court has ordered a culinary school in Denmark's Holstebro town to pay a Muslim woman 40,000 Danish krone, or around $6,000, in damages for forcing her to taste pork as part of her classes, a Danish daily reported Friday.
According to the daily Politiken, the 24-year-old student studied at the Holstebro Culinary School and was told that she too like other students would have to taste her own food that she cooks as part of her education.
The student, who was not named by the paper, filed a complaint against the school with the Equal Treatment Board and said she was being discriminated on religious grounds. She also reportedly stopped going to the school as a result of the requirement to eat pork, which Muslims believe is prohibited to eat in Islam.
