Muslims fight for pigs’ rights

Danish imam Abdul Wahid Petersen and several other Muslims have started a group, ‘Muslims for Danish pigs’ rights’, to show that Muslims have a lot more on their minds than headscarves, reports public broadcaster DR.

‘As Muslims, we think about a lot more things than we’re normally associated with,’ he told DR.

He explained that Muslims believed they had a religious obligation to the world they were a part of. And since pigs were part of the world, they were there to look after them.
