Via The Daily Telegraph:

“A school that wanted to offer only halal chicken on its Christmas menu has been forced to back down after a revolt by parents and pupils.Children at the 1,000-strong comprehensive, where one in five is of Asian origin, will now have the option of traditional turkey with trimmings. Oakwood School, in Rotherham, said its halal decision had been made to bring “a spirit of inclusion” to the Christmas meal. But Rachel Johnson, who has two daughters at the school, said: “It has really rocked my boat because I feel my culture is being stolen away from me. I have no objection to halal meat being on the menu so long as there is a choice of traditional Christmas fare. “Our culture and religion are being trampled on and it is not right.”
