Pigs back in school play in England

A school in the English county of West Yorkshire was planning to perform a Roald Dahl story entitled "Little Red Riding Hood and the Pigs" at a children's concert. It was asked by the organisers to turn the pigs into puppies in order to avoid giving offense to Muslims. However, the council of the district of Kirklees has intervened, and the pigs are now back in the play. There have, in fact, been no complaints regarding the issue, from Muslims or otherwise (BBC).

It should be noted that pork is forbidden in Islam, but that does not mean a ban on mentioning pigs.
