In Cadiz, Spain, a Muslim student charged his geography teacher with xenophobia and racism for discussing ham, reports Pajamas Media. The teacher, a 20-year veteran, had mentioned that the cold mountain climate of the Granada town of Trevélez is conducive to curing ham.
The students’ parents filed a police complaint; the local prosecutor doesn’t plan to press charges.
Mohamed Ali, president of the Spanish Federation of Islamic Religious Entities, called the student’s complaint “absolutely ridiculous,” saying the “Koran prohibits the consumption of ham, not the discussion of it.”
My Spanish isn’t too good, but I think the teacher also called the ham complaint ridiculous and grotesque.
