“Why are people afraid of pigs?”

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…..
