The topic of this post is halal food – the type of food, which is endorsed by the Muslim religion.
It could be found in more and more places in Toronto and that’s very alarming (you’ll see why after we get into the details of its nature). It’s up to you, dear readers, to decide whether we have a well-organized Mafia-like organization, whose purpose is to impose halal food on everybody, or if the whole issue is a natural result of the Islamic expansion.
In the original article, besides the angry parents, they also quoted a local Muslim leader, who seemed puzzled by all that commotion:
But chief co-ordinator of the Harrow Pakistani Society, Mohammad Rizvi, thinks the issue has been blown out of proportion.
He said: “For Muslim children the only option they have is to eat is Halal, it is part of their religion. Whereas it isn’t a problem for children of other faiths to eat Halal. This isn’t about Islamification or pandering to Muslims it’s just common sense.
Please read the quote again. Aren’t you shocked by the arrogance of that “leader”? He is an immigrant for whom integration is out of the question. The local people, who accepted him and his fellow Pakistanis, must adapt to their cult. “It’s just common sense.” There isn’t a trace of humility or mutual understanding in his words.
Frankly, I found the case amusing – just another example of the British defeatism. I was confident that nothing like that could happen in Canada.
Boy was I wrong! Fast forward several months to the “mosqueteria” scandal, which revealed that a Toronto school allows Muslim prayers on its premises during school hours in blatant violation of the secular nature of our public education (later it turned out that even more schools were doing it).
One of the side effects was imposing halal food in the Valley Park Middle School, where the prayers took place.
But that was just the tip of the iceberg. It was revealed that several other schools in Toronto boasted that they offered only halal food (and of course, probably there are many more). [emphasis added]
