MV: In Islam it is a major sin to eat Pork and it is considered to be the dirtiest animal in Islam.
all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons and foods)”We do not doubt for an instant that the pig is a dirty and filthy animal, and that eating it is harmful to man.

This answer by a khair from Islam-qa.com, tells us of how dangerous pigs can be to the human brain and death it helped clear up many of us from being lost 🙂 “Say (O Muhammad): I find not in that which has been revealed to me anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be Maytah (a dead animal) or blood poured forth (by slaughtering or the like), or the flesh of swine (pork); for that surely, is impure or impious (unlawful) meat (of an animal) which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allaah (or has been slaughtered for idols, or on which Allaah’s Name has not been mentioned while slaughtering)”By the mercy of Allaah and His kindness towards us, Allaah has permitted us to eat all good things, and He has not forbidden anything but those that are impure.Even the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) during his time as leader in Mecca did not discriminate against the multitudes and types people under his care and did not act in a different manner in the presence of non-Muslims.But I do say this with a caveat: there are hadiths (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) and surahs (statements in the Quran) that asks Muslims to be wary of themselves when in the friendship of such friends- you are who your friends are.Also, do note that Islam, like many of the Abrahamic religions, opine many values that clash with a large number of secular beliefs - and of which one of them is clearly stated in the Quran for the Muslims: homosexuality is a sin in Islam .I am not attempting to debate on the rightness or wrongness or the potential alternatives (and the validity of said alternatives) of such beliefs (it's a debate blackhole that will never end) - I am just attempting to answer the question directly as much as I possibly can, based on the aforementioned Muslim belief.
