    Even if you agree there should be halal or disagree. I'm sure most people agree that he shouldn't be seeking compensation? Of all the ridiculous things I have ever heard.

    I just read that story "forced to eat vegetables" For crying out loud - had he done what he did in some Muslim countries, eating vegetables would have been the very last thing on his mind. It isn't like they forced him to eat non halal meat - he deserves no pay out, ridiculous that he is even pursuing it.

    I'm not a lawyer, but from what I remember of my law subject at uni judges often use something called "precedent" meaning if there was a similar case in the past they could use that to make their decision. So if a prisoner had previously sued over dietary requirements and won, then the next time a similar case comes up in court they stand a good chance of winning because it's happened before.

    Not sure what they could do to change it, apart from a judge going against precedent or revoking the decision they made on a case.

    (Please feel free to jump in if I've got that wrong!)

    No way. If they cared about their life they wouldn't be in jail to begin with. Suck it up and be thankful for the food given and be glad it's atleast eatable.

    The only special meal they should have is gruel.

    I think medically required meals only.
    I kinda feel you give up the right to luxuries, choices and preferences.

    Former butcher Raymond Akhtar Ali was fed a vegetarian diet for four months, instead of specially prepared halal meat in accordance with his religious requirements.
    Why did I read this I feel sick what a monster, he's lucky to have been fed. He should be rotting in a cell

    I get the feeling that this 'man' is the type to enjoy a bit of a power trip and rubbing salt on the wound so to speak. It's just unfortunate that some idiot allowed it.

    I can't see the issue...he won't eat non halal meat so he was given vegetarian meals. Its not like he was forced to eat the meat.
