Someone asked me on MSN.

“Why are people so afraid of pigs?’

To my understanding, if what I remembered from sitting in during ugama class, the ustazah explained that in the Koran, Nabi Muhammed saw a pack of pigs bathing in their own shits. So, naturally, pigs don’t have very nice images. Pigs = shits. And hence, it is forbidden in Islam. I may be wrong and will appreciate some better explanations.

Meanwhile, in the Bible, when Jesus drove out a pack of demons from a possessed man, the demons ran into a herd of pigs and the pigs ran down the cliff and die.

So, there you go. Bad images of pigs.

Now you know…..
