Muslim inmates say the Ohio prison system is denying them meals prepared according to Islamic law, known as halal, while at the same time providing kosher meals to Jewish prisoners, according to a federal lawsuit that alleges a civil rights violation. Awkal says the prison system’s failure to provide the halal meals is a restraint on his religious freedoms. (AP Photo/Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, File)
