BBC Upsets Muslim Staff By Roasting a Hog..Right Under the Windows of Arabic TV Service
An honest mistake. Could have happened to anyone:
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has angered Muslim staff by hosting a hog roast to celebrate the Commonwealth Games beneath the windows of its Arabic TV service.
The Sun on Sunday reports that a whole pig was spit-roasted in the courtyard of New Broadcasting House in London, with the smell of pork drifting up through the windows of the mainly Muslim office. Workers described their “horror” at spotting the pig on their lunch break.
Islam forbids its followers from eating pork as pigs are considered “unclean” animals. The hog roast also happened on Friday, just days after the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
No, horror is the reaction you get when you see a Muslim extremist behead a person because they aren’t Muslim.
Seeing someone eating delicious pork when your religion prohibits it?
Well, that’s reason to question your religion.
