University Press Bans Word ‘Pork’ Because It Offends Muslims

1033Oxford University Press has banned children’s book authors from using the words pig, pork because Muslims were offended.

Publishers HAVE to submit to SHARIA LAW by banning the word ‘pork’ and similar.

“I’ve got a letter here that was sent out by OUP to an author doing something for young people,” said TV host Jim Naughtie, whose wife Eleanor Updale is working with Oxford on an educational book series. “Among the things prohibited in the text that was commissioned by OUP was the following: Pigs plus sausages, or anything else which could be perceived as pork.”

“Now, if a respectable publisher, tied to an academic institution, is saying you’ve got to write a book in which you cannot mention pigs because some people might be offended, it’s just ludicrous,” he added. “It is just a joke.”

Even Muslim Labour MP Khalid Mahmood agreed that this was going too far.

“I absolutely agree,” he conceded. “That’s absolute utter nonsense. And when people go too far, that brings the whole discussion into disrepute.”
