Sarajevo: Shopping center bans pig dolls

Sarajevo: Shopping center bans pig dolls

As far as I understand the story: the shopping center is BBI Centar, run by Bosna Bank International, the first Islamic bank in Bosnia and Herzegovina.  It therefore enforces sharia law on the shops in its shopping center as well, and was originally opened with restrictions on alcohol and pork.

Hardline religious leaders told shopkeepers in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, that because the dolls were based on pigs they breached muslim food laws which ban pork, reports local news website

Muslim leaders have denied trying to impose sharia law on the shopping centre but have already managed to ban alcohol and pork from all restaurants.
