The three little piggies will live on after all.
A day after it was reported that a school in Britain would be changing characters in its play from the three little pigs to the three little puppies to avoid offending Muslims, the Honley Church of England Junior School changed its mind, and will use the pigs in the music festival.
The school is performing Roald Dahl's version on Little Red Riding Hood which features the pigs and officials were afraid Muslim children participating might be offended by the pigs.Muslim advocates in the community called the move "bizarre."
"The vast majority of Muslims have no problem whatsoever with the Three Little Pigs. It's always been the traditional way of telling the story and I don't see why that should be changed," Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra from the Muslim Council of Britain told the Daily Mail Wednesday.
The decision was called a "mistake" by a local council member.
"The schools music festival is a terrific event that brings together schools across Kirklees," Jim Dodds, a cabinet member for children's services, told the Press Associated.
