Multi-faith school serves non-halal food, Muslims insulted, food server fired

Only Islam gets itself worked up into such a froth over a simple mistake and then demands repercussions to assuage their victimization.  The headmaster of the school was forced by parents of Muslim kids to apologize for the "insult" and the foodserver lost her job due to this perceived slight.  Would Jews have demanded an apology and firing if it was a mistake serving kosher food?  I think not.

Dinner lady sacked for serving Muslim children with non-halal meat at multi-faith school

A dinner lady has been sacked for accidentally serving non-halal meat to Muslim students at a multi-faith school.

The incident outraged parents at the 'halal-only' Moseley School in Birmingham, and they have forced the headmaster to apologise for 'insulting' their faith.
The member of staff has been dismissed after the 'unintentional error' on December 12 last year recently came to light.
All 1,400 students at Moseley school are served halal meat, regardless of their religion.

It has not been specified what type of meat was served, but the person responsible for serving the food was dismissed following a disciplinary hearing last Monday.
Parents were informed of the mistake this month, and reacted with outrage, forcing headteacher Carl Jansen to apologise for the ‘unintentional error'.

However, Muslim parents are demanding others be held accountable for the mistake, which they say call 'an insult to our faith’.
‘The school have failed the children,' one parent said yesterday. ‘How did this meal get into the school system to be fed to the children?

‘It's just shocking that dietary requirements haven't been met.'

It is a disgrace that this could be allowed to happen and we demand more action is take,' a father of a sixth form student said yesterday.

‘It could not just be the error or one lady, there must be people at the top responsible too who also need to be sacked. It is an insult to our faith.’

How strong is a religion that eating food not prepared to religious requirements becomes a grave insult?
