    Yet we are the closed minded ones

    At least I can change my opinion on this given the FACTS
    I am open to all discussion, but to change my mind on this matter you will have to change my religion as I follow God's laws not man-made laws, ygm.

    A bit shouty

    But the fact is muslims and Jews are exempted from the laws on ethical treatment of animals this exemption need to be removed.

    But google EID slaughter to see how halal is really done

    Just don't do it on a full stomach

    Oh and it's being reported in the telegraph, the Guardian and the BBC so daily fail argument wont wash

    Really

    I ask again

    If research was able to prove that the un stunned halal and kosher method of slaughter caused an animal unnecessary suffering would you support the banning of it?

    The truth is we have already decided the halal and kosher method are cruel as we have a LAW that prevents non muslims from using this slaughter method

    Remember your slaughter methods are EXEMPT from the law on the ethical treatment of animals

    No i would not support the ban as my Creator has provided this means of slaughtering as the best means of acquiring this form of nutrition. AS I SAID BEFORE IF YOU WANT ME TO CHANGE MY POSITION you will have to convince me to change my religion!

    My religion is not man-made its set by GOD therefore its not my position to change laws of slaughtering animals etc.

    So anything you say about 'halal' being for the benefit of the animal and it's welfare is irrelevant

    I'm not here to get you to change your religion I'm just highlighting the hypocrisy of your reply

    All I am trying to highlight is that you cant expect us to change our religion and way of slaughtering which has been withheld for centuries just because some 'scientific evidence' suggests so.

    However I would like to see changes and improvements in the way that animals are treated in slaughter houses BUT that shouldn't require changing the method of slaughtering.

    Yes I can. You can follow you religion as much as the law allows you to. If the law were to ban halal and kosher you would have to follow and accept this

    The Law in the UK requires ALL animals to be stunned before slaughter

    Muslims and Jews are exempt from this law (you do understand this don't you? If I as a non Muslim were to slaughter an animal the same I would be locked up for animal cruelty:rolleyes:)

    This will soon change

    Well I hope that you are aware that if this does 'soon change' many thousands of muslims will have no means of acquiring meat which is in accordance with their faith and many may lose their income or be forced to become vegetarian.

    I urge you to understand the implications of your efforts...lets channel them to stopping animal cruelty in the way the animals are treated before slaughtering.

    Tough.

    We want everyone to be equal before the law and we expect everyone to be held to the same standards.

    You want to be treated equally as a Muslim don't you?

    Instead of trying to change the law to ban slaughtering animals altogether, try to change the law so that slaughtering animals is allowed for people of all or no belief and have stricter regulations to ensure the good treatment of the livestock.

    NO.

    the law is there to prevent cruelty to animals and as a country we have already decided this is unacceptable

    we will not change this but we are fighting to make sure the law applies to EVERYONE without exception

    But you didn't answer the question

    Do want muslims to be treated Equally in this country>?

    If it's my sincerely held belief that cows should be skewered and cooked while still alive over a fire, would it be fair to exempt me from the law because it's 'my faith'?

    NEVERTHELESS DON'T LISTEN TO THE DAILY FAIL AS THEY TWIST AND LIE EVERY DAY!
    Sadly the story hasn't just been made up by the daily mail, it's been widely reported and the footage available to see.

    "Animals can apparently be seen having their throats hacked and sawed by a worker wearing the traditional Muslim kufi skullcap and muttering the words Allahu Akbar (God is great). In one instance, it took five attempts to sever blood vessels"


    "The footage is also said to show:

    - Sheep being kicked in the face and head, lifted by their ears, fleeces or legs, and hurled into solid structures.

    - A worker standing on the neck of a conscious sheep and bouncing up and down.
    - Staff erupting into laughter over a sheep bleeding to death with spectacles drawn around her eyes in green paint.

    - Staff taunting and frightening animals by waving knives, smacking them on the head and shouting at them.

    - A worker holding a sheep by the throat and pulling back his fist as if to deliver a punch."

    Its being confused with the term halal meat, and media are pushing it without bothering to research.

    Actually no, there are restrictions which animals are allowed to be slaughtered e.g. if their sick they can't. However, there are also guidelines to how animals should be raised/treated....this is the issue which is slowly becoming a bigger topic in the Muslim community, with some only considering organic halal as acceptable. It'll get a bigger movement going with more abattoirs trying to hustle in on the halal meat market.
    animals being sick is not relevant to what i said, anti-bios and steroids/hormone are given to healthy animals in the 'halal' meat industry too
    the issue you refer about humane treatment is more to do with western ideals of animal welfare influnecing muslims. britain with EU has the most stringent animal welfare laws. even some halal slaughterhosues actually use stunning from pressure based in uk. but not all So its the western media that often highlights the issue of inhumane treatment in halal slaughter. topically today there is an opened investigation on a halal slaughterhouse where animals were abused. my guess is this is one of many to come

    Hi,

    I was vegetarian too for a while. So I deeply respect your ideals.

    Yes, I understand your point, and I assure you I'm very well versed with what halal means. What I'm trying to accentuate is that the method of halal slaughter isn't barbaric. It's an incredibly humane process and I think if a chicken was given a choice between death by a halal butcher or a lioness, it'd be a pretty easy decision to make :P
    there is nothing humane about halal slaughter - perhaps you arnt aware of its nature - the slitting of the jugular but preserveing the spine and therefore central nervous system was not driven by 'humane concern' it was to keep the animal alive while islamic chants can be performed in its death throws. its entirely a tribal arab practice that actually pre-dates islam ( but was adopted by mohammed etc)
    stunning is a far more humane method, if you insist on slaughtering animals

    To be fair this is not an Islamic teaching at all. Killing animals whilst others are allowed to witness it is a no no. These people carrying out these bullying tactics are just idiots.
