Again, thanks to the Mail we have reporting of widescale sale of “Halal” meat. Most which does not meet the requirement for Halal slaughter. The article is more objective than last weeks article and glad to see some information got through!
As pointed out in the article, profit. Some companies capitalising at the expense of those not wanting to eat Halal meat and not providing Halal meat to those wishing to consume it!
There is no conclusive evidence that confirms that slaughter without stunning is inhumane. What concerns some Muslims is that pre-stunning methods make the process inhumane and therefore to be avoided.
It is as a result of the money making companies and certification organisations that are advising (some would argue misleading) that it is OK to pre-stunn and worse still OK to machine kill (chicken) and it gets worse, OK to a tape recording of the prayer left playing whilst a machine slaughters. Resulting in MAXIUM yield! The labelling of this meat as Halal is misleading to Muslims and confusing to non-Muslims who think this is barbaric/inhumane when in fact this is what main stream slaughter also provides them without the prayer being said.
We are asking those in industry to stop this practise and if they do want to label it as “Halal”, label it to show the slaughter methods too to allow everyone to know what they are buying. Fair and square.
Emmh, is all this press coverage a ploy to make sure there it generates public frenzy and get the MEP’s to pass the motion for labelling ONLY meat from animal that are not stunned prior to slaughter? SEE our campaign. WHY the sudden attention to this area? A sure way to fuel the anti-islamic feeling and force the end of genuine Halal and Koser meat.
