Blooming pig farms in Muslim Morocco

Check out this very interesting and enlightening article HERE


“Shunned by most Muslim countries where pork consumption is a religious taboo, pig farming is booming in Morocco thanks to a growing tourist industry and pragmatic breeders.”

“ "I'm a practising Muslim. I don't eat pork and I don't drink alcohol but it's just a breeding operation like any other and no imam has ever reprimanded me for it," he said of raising pigs -- whose consumption is prohibited in both Islam and Judaism.”

The breeders include Jean Yves Yoel Chriquia, a 32-year-old Jew who owns the country's main pork processing factory along with a farm of 1000 pigs.”

“ "Religion is a private matter. What I do is just another way to earn a living and my rabbi has never said anything about it," he said.”

So why all the fuss in narrow minded and self centred Malaysia?

SIL and other are condemning the modern, pollution free pig farming project in Selangor?


There is nothing wrong with pig farming, especially if it is carried out properly in a hygienic, sanitary and non-poluting manner.

A cute piglet

Such politicians are hypocrites, as it was, after all is said and done, the UMNO led former Selangor state government which had initiated it. There are numerous news reports to this effect.

Oh, by the way, that infamous blogger called menj left this comment regarding my post about the dumping of raw sewage into the pristine waters off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia,

“menj: dont see anything wrong with that.

selangor state is discharging pig shit into the sea and no one is complaining!”

Obviously this guy menj seems to believe that human excrement is less offensive than the porcine type!

He also apparently seems to think that the waters off the coast of Selangor are crystal clear, have a sandy seabed fringed by coral reefs like, those off the east coast.

For you information and education, menj, shit is shit end of story, and there should be no pollution of any kind, anywhere, at any time.
