A statement issued by the East London Mosque and London Muslim Centre welcomes West Minster City Council "swift response" following the discovery of pork DNA in Halal sausages, but says it is concerned there will now be issues of trust between Muslim parents and schools.
It is strictly prohibited for Muslims to eat pork or meat that has not been slaughtered in accordance with their faith and thus the discovery of pork meat in Halal sausages will be hard to ‘stomach’ for the parents of the children that have been exposed to this contaminated meat. There will be serious issues of concern and distrust between Muslim parents and the schools now, and we hope a resolution can be sought quickly and effectively as possible.
