From Little Green Footballs: Piggy banks are banned in Britain so as to not offend Muslims.

British banks are banning piggy banks because they may offend some Muslims.

Halifax and NatWest banks have led the move to scrap the time-honoured symbol of saving from being given to children or used in their advertising, the Daily Express/Daily Star group reports here.

Muslims do not eat pork, as Islamic culture deems the pig to be an impure animal.

Salim Mulla, secretary of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, backed the bank move.

“This is a sensitive issue and I think the banks are simply being courteous to their customers,” he said.

Jews don't like pork either and yet banks aren't caving into them. However, according to LLLs the Jews own all of the banks so maybe that is why. But that doesn't make sense, we would have never had piggy banks to begin with. I'm confused.
