Copenhagen: Culinary school requires Muslims to taste pork
Islam in Europe
The Copenhagen Hospitality College is requiring a young Muslim to taste pork if he wants to graduate. Orthodox Jews, Muslims and teetotalers can't study at the school, since they're required to taste pork and wine.
Ikram Korkmaz is Muslim and refuses to do so. He will not eat pork, but has on problems preparing it. Ikram Korkmaz and his wife, Britt Maria Christensen, the school told him he can't go there. Korkmaz has been at the school since January, learning to be a nutrition assistant.
Britt Maria Christensen says the school has told them he won't get an internship if he isn't willing to taste pork. According to the school's website, Muslims can taste pork, but must spit it out without swallowing. [the page seems to have been removed]
