QANTAS has removed pork from its in-flight menu on flights to and from Europe as a result of its partnership with Middle Eastern airline Emirates.
No food containing pork or pork products will be served on those flights – which now has a stopover in Dubai – because it is strictly forbidden in Islam and is considered “unholy”.
All meals offered on the route in first, business and economy classes will also be prepared without alcohol in keeping with the Islamic religion. A note on the Qantas menus on flights in and out of Dubai states that the meals do not contain pork products or alcohol. The airline has also introduced a mezze plate offering traditional Middle Eastern fare in its upper classes and has Arabic translations after in-flight announcements.
A Qantas spokesman said the decision to remove pork, ham and other related food items had had minimal impact on its menu and it was still offering the same meal choices.
dishing it out but cannot take it the unofficial motto of Islam
A hypocrite Muslim father who has no problem with forcing British school kids to eat halal whining that his son ate pork
A Muslim father has called for an investigation into a Keighleynursery he claims let his three-year-old son eat ham and non-halal meat on two separate occasions.
Abdul Shukoor, of Paget Street, has sent Ayaan to Strong Close Nursery, on Airedale Road, for over a year, but pulled him out after the latest incident.
He claims nursery staff failed to ensure his son sticks to his religion’s dietary rules and also regularly serve vegetarian meat substitutes to Muslim pupils instead of halal food.
He has written to Keighley MP Kris Hopkins about the issue and will tomorrow meet with managers of the company that runs the nursery, educational charity the Pre School Learning Alliance, to discuss his complaints.
