British Muslim chef claims discrimination for being forced to handle food

A Muslim chef employed by the Metropolitan Police force in Britain has filed a religious discrimination claim because his employers couldn't guarantee that he wouldn't be required to handle and cook pork.
Hasanali Khoja is accusing the force of religious discrimination after it refused to guarantee in his contract that he would be excused from handling pork products.

He claims that while working as catering manager at Hendon Police College, in north London, he was asked to move to another team where he would be expected to cook what officers nick-name the "999 breakfast" - a large fry-up including sausage, bacon and black pudding.

"I felt very unhappy about it. I was very upset and angry," said Mr Khoja, who joined the Met in 2005.
Give me a fucking break.
