Germany: Muslim parents have apparently demanded that there should be halal meat in the school canteens in Hamburg in the future
At a school in Hamburg, parents had apparently demanded that there should be halal meat in the school canteen in the future. In response to a small question from the AfD party, the senate had confirmed that the chairman of the parents' council had demanded this "disproportionately vehemently". The Senate's reply also speaks of "fierce discussions" among parents. So vehemently obviously that even Hamburg's school senator Ties Rabe interfered in the matter. "There is no entitlement of certain groups to enforce their own food rites or regulations for school meals. And we will continue to oppose it," the SPD politician told the newspaper "Hamburger Abendblatt". The dispute at school had apparently led to the fact that no meat at all was offered in the canteen for a short time. The dishes were only prepared purely plant-based. Now there should at least be meat again - but this is not halal. "We will by no means begin to try to add the diversity of this city to our diet," Rabe was quoted as saying.
