DTT: Muslim women face discrimination in all walks of life in Europe.
This Muslim woman was forced to taste food which are forbidden in Islam. The Danish school thought they can get away with it.
Luckily enough she recorded the whole conversation to be used in court as evidence against them.
A Danish court has ordered a culinary school to pay around $6,000 in damages to its Muslim student after a woman was required to taste pork as part of her studies.
The 24-year-old student, who arrived in Denmark from Libya, when she still was a baby, attended the Holstebro Culinary School, named after the town where it’s located.
According to the Politiken daily, the student, whose name wasn’t revealed by the paper, was told by school officials that she would have to taste the food she cooks, like the rest of her classmates.
Dishes the group cooked contained pork, forbidden for Muslims due to religion, prompting the woman to abstain from trying them.
As she refused, she was asked to only taste, but not to swallow the pork dishes.
The woman recorded the conversation with school officials and later presented the tape as evidence in court.
It appeared that the student was informed that pork and wine would be in the recipes, but she was only informed that trying prepared dishes was compulsory after the course began.
