A number of German cafes have started to exclude traditional pork sausages from their menus in order not to offend the feelings of Muslim newcomers, Express reported.

Members of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party criticized the initiative and are planning to control that pork is further available at work and university canteens, according the article.

“The protection of minorities — including for religious reasons — must not mean that the majority is overruled in their free decision by ill-conceived consideration, ” representative of the party, Daniel Gunther said.

According to the politician, those who want to refrain from eating pork can do so, but it does not mean that meat should disappear from all menus.

The consumption of pork is a part of the German culture, he said, strictly opposing the new initiative.

Earlier it was reported that more and more German residents support the introduction of restrictions on the inflow of refugees to the country. The growing influx of newcomers raises security concerns among the local population, especially after cases of sexual assaults against women on New Year’s Eve.

In a number of German cities, thousands of German women were sexually abused by Arab and north-African men during the New Year celebrations. The incidents sparked anti-migrant sentiment in the country and criticism of the current policy of open-doors.
