The requirement for meat to be 'halal' is that the animal is 'in perfect health' prior to being killed. They can say all the fecking prayers they like, but slinging a beast up by its hind leg and cutting its throat in the name of religion is something only the truly godless could condone . . . . .They say its no different to before except a prayer is said 1st.
That really is the galling thing about it, hundreds of sab's causing trouble and nothing done about a horrific practise like halal.Ironic that this practice carries on really, in a country where we have masked hunt saboteurs running around in the name of 'welfare' interfering with people on horseback chasing scented rags . . . . . .
When I was a kid most small aimals were killed that way. Held up by the legs....if it was a lamb it'd be by the man himself...and the throat cut. This wasn't Pakistan, nor Algeria but rural Lincolnshire. Where every village butcher killed his own animals. So once mostly all small animals were killed like that and the larger ones with a poleaxe and the throat then slit to bleed it out.Good to see this happening, its a scandal it was ever allowed in the first place.
Wasn't there also a scandal a few years ago about Pizza Express serving all Halal meat because they couldn't be bothered to differentiate? I think a few other chains got caught up in it too?LANDKEEPER is correct. All meat supplied for school meals in UK State Schools has to be halal slaughtered I am told. Whether that is correct I don't know but it is what I have been told.
And so called turkey ham. Which is pink turkey leg meat. Now the pizzerias that are muslim owned say that this is because it is halal. This is nonsense it is about profit as this turkey ham is a lot cheaper than real ham from a real pig. So next time in such unscrupulous places when you are enjoying an Hawaiian Pizza you're paying for ham and getting turkey.Wasn't there also a scandal a few years ago about Pizza Express serving all Halal meat because they couldn't be bothered to differentiate?
