Animals  (tags: abuse, AnimalCruelty, animalrights, animalwelfare, Halal, Islam, slaughter, killing )

The organisation said it was forced to take action after facing "cash flow" issues following the failure to pay its VAT bill dating back to 2005, a sum reported to be in six figures, but the group says it will continue its work in the Muslim community

Wonderful news! Few people know how many animals are slaughtered in the cruel Muslim manner - by slitting their throats and bleeding them to death while the name of Allah is said over them - as if that makes being slaughtered more acceptable! They are not stunned first so feel the knife slicing through their neck. Just imagine how much cutting your finger with a knife hurts and imagine having your neck sliced through from ear to ear.

Glad I'm a vegan so I don't have to feel any responsibility for the terrible suffering animals have to endure. But this is at least a small step to reduce that suffering. Halal and Kosher slaughter should be illegal in any modern, civilised country.

they really should be stunned. Over here it's mandatory that they are, but the Muslims feel that makes it impure so they wait for them to come to THEN start the slashing. Really, this is not in the Koran's teaching's at all. This was the correct way when it WAS the most humane way to slaughter, as the Koran specifically teaches not to let animals suffer needlessly. Digging their heals in over it is not good for Islam

Industrial agriculture and industrial slaughter are bad for animals and people alike. Keeping animals stuck in feedlots and pigs and calves in small cages is horrible life for those animals regardless how they are killed at the end. I do not see anything humane in "regular" slaughter where animals are forcibly led to a conveyer to take them to have their heads bashed with a stunt gun before slashing their throat.

Kosher killings where animal jugular arteries are cut is supposed to be the least painful form of death and Tora laws proscribes kindness to animals during entire life, not just killing. This type of death was what Zealots in Masada chose when they run out of food and decided to commit suicide rather then ball victims to Roman army. Therefore kosher killing is presumably less painful than other types of killing. Also, Blood is being removed, which Jews are not supposed to eat.

Kosher meat is acceptable to Muslims, since apparently halal meat is obtained in a similar manner. I have not seen any of those killing methods in practice and cannot judge if kosher, halal or "regular" killing of animals is any more humane then keeping animals stuck in feedlots for their entire lives.

If you are concerned about suffering of animals, the best is NOT to eat ANY of them and become vegetarian, or vegan (so that you even do not use milk and eggs from animals in captivity).

I used to buy Halal meat until I found out how the poor animals were painfully killed. I believe that royalties for an Halal certification eventually end up in some secretive organisation in Germany and the funds are used to finance terrorism and buy arms for rebelions. Read the labels folks, the Halal royality you pay today could come back as a terrorist act tomorrow.

This is good news indeed - and we certainly need something positive like this. In Tasmania - there are a couple of places you can get Halal food - but we only ever buy our beef from a local butcher we have been with for years - and it is definitely NOT Halal crap.

halal killing was supposed to be humane, but the rules are pretty slack on how sharp the knife must be, and how the animals must be treated. seems this ruling might be a good thing.

"The organisation said it was forced to take action after facing “cash flow” issues following the failure to pay its VAT bill dating back to 2005, a sum reported to be in six figures. HMC said it was unaware of the requirement to pay VAT, due to its status as a charity"

+++++++++++++++++ SIX FIGURES? Wow...slaughter can be profitable..

A little good news. Here in the US it's becoming the practice to have Halal everywhere. I refuse to eat ANYTHING from a place that uses those butchering "practices," and if I don't know, I don't risk it. Even if I don't eat meat, I won't put any profit into those pockets, by buying other items that they may sell! Just boycott all those establishments, stores, and restaurants.

For those of you who say Halal killing is humane, you better go do your research. There are plenty of videos you may watch and pictures you can load, where you see how far from reality that is!

This was the correct way when it WAS the most humane way to slaughter, as the Koran specifically teaches not to let animals suffer needlessly. Digging their heals in over it is not good for Islam ....and show again that they dont care about animals......so then why should they care about women!!!!!

It is about time that UK wake s up....but they still have A LONG WAY TO GO!!!
