A Muslim lawmaker on Monday night raged at a catering crewmember of a Chinese restaurant for serving her food with pork.
Rep. Faysah Dumarpa of Lanao del Sur reportedly slapped the crewmember, Virginia Fernando Altamirano, and held a bread knife at her.
Altamirano, 36, has filed a complaint against Dumarpa with the Quezon City police.
It is forbidden in Islam for a believer to eat pork or its derivatives. To do so is a grievous sin. An intentional consumption of such meat would hinder me from gaining entrance to paradise. Beyond dietary concerns, this is a matter of faith, Dumarpa said in a letter to Ramon Sy, head of the Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine, which caters for congressmen during sessions at the South Lounge in the House of Representatives.
Dumarpa said she felt betrayed and grossly insulted by being served food containing pork. I assumed your [catering] crew purposely caused that by intentional concealment of the fact herein set forth. If it was not at all intentional, then there must have been gross negligence on their part.
Dumarpa even demanded that Sy fire the crewmen, and that only halal foods be made available in the South Lounge.
Another Muslim legislator, Anak Mindanao party-list Rep. Mujiv Hataman, said the House leadership should take responsibility for the gaffe.
This indicates lack of religious and cultural sensitivity even within the House of Representatives itself, Hataman said in a text message.
To prevent a repetition of the incident, Hataman suggested that the House consider putting up a separate lounge for Muslim legislators and visitors of Congress.
They should have slipped in some dog or cat meat.
I feel the same about Lutefisk.
I like the idea.
Here ya go.
It is forbidden in Islam for a believer to eat pork or its derivatives. To do so is a grievous sin.But threatening to knife another person is cool, as long as your a Religion of Peacer.
To do so is a grievous sin. An intentional consumption of such meat would hinder me from gaining entrance to paradise.
Hmmm with an attitude like that sounds more like the Muslim is going to hell.
Carpet bomb Islam with live hogs.
Hogs deserve a better fate than that, a million cans of spam is a better idea, relabeled of course.....
Separate lounge? How about a separate country? Saudi Arabia welcomes the Representative.
The more pork the better
intentional - yo sister, this is your key word, did you intend to eat pork, no? then whats your beef (so to speak)
Seems like religious and cultural sensitivity is a one way street with muslims. F'em!
Then eat cake, bozo.
The world's moslem population really needs to run back to the desert, huddle amongst themselves, and come back to play when they're ready to join civilization.
Well said. These people are the ultimate hypocrites, aren't they?
"Dumarpa even demanded that Sy fire the crewmen, and that only halal foods be made available in the South Lounge."
So, since she refuses to eat pork products, she wants to forbid any non-halal food in the lounge for everyone. Can we call it Chicken a la Sharia?
