Traditional European cuisine is under attack by Muslim citizens

Traditional European cuisine is under attack by Muslim citizens. Proved by the incident in Copenhagen Hospitality College (a cooking school) in Denmark, which required tasting of pork and wine from its Muslim students; and later it was forced by the Danish government to take the pork and wine off the menu.
