HUSSAIN`S BUTCHER SHOP/KING HUSSAIN OF PAKISTAN – QUEEN ASIA OF NORWAY

HUSSAIN`S BUTCHER SHOP:
The winter in Norway is long and cold. But Mr Gholam Hussain is patient, waiting for a truckload of sheep. His customers in Oslo’s eastend are mainly moslem migrants and they don’t want frozen meat, only fresh mutton. Finally a truckload of lamb arrives and Mr Hussain is triumphant doing his halal duties as a butcher. But he soon realizes that his customers are still not satisfied. Eid is approaching and they only want the meat of male sheep, not the female mutton which is in Hussain’s shop.

Mr Hussain has to use all his charm to persuade his customers that there is equality between the sexes in Norway, and that female mutton is equal to the worth of male meat.
