Labelling Halal Meat

3,127 Signatures Goal: 5,000

We say halal meat must be labelled in shops, take-aways and restaurants. We recognise that most halal meat is stunned before slaughter; it is the Shahada, the declaration to Allah, which most concerns us. Muslims should be able to buy halal meat, properly labelled. But retail outlets should not secretly impose it on the rest of us. Any meat, stunned or not, over which a slaughterman has said 'Bismillah Allah al Akhbar' should be labelled as having been ritually slaughtered.

    I thought equality meant the same for everyone, obviously not in this case. This takes away my right to make an informed choice of what I'm buying/eating.

    I Boycott Halal, because I want Freedom of choice for all... Muslims are Free to have halal certificates... as long as they PAY for them - Not me or other Non-muslims. We are NOT Followers of Islam and do not require halal certificates at all... and it raises ethnic tensions when we find we have been tricked into buying Unlabelled halal certified products which fund Islamic expansion. Which brings me to a second point - ALL HALAL PRODUCTS SHOULD BE LABELLED AS SUCH... those that are certified AND the Ritually Slaughtered [RS] meat that is Rejected in the post slaughter inspection - this Haram or Rejected Substandard [RS] is sold off cheap as if it is conventional meat to unsuspecting shoppers.
    All halal certified products follow a Religious Standard [RS] which conforms to Islamic Law and although its is said that 80% of all Halal Meat is stunned before slaughter - it is NOT properly stunned - the stun used is a Reversible Stun [RS] which is cruel, as the livestock becomes fully conscious again within 15 seconds (Grandin) and is then unable to move or vocalise its pain. Muslims (ANSA & HMC) say the RS stun is cruel too, because HFA Tests have shown that if the throat cut is not done, the animal is able to stand and graze in a field within 30-90 seconds after a RS Stun. Given that it can take a large animal 6 minutes to die after the throat cut - it is outrageous in the 21st Century that we in Britain are allowing such suffering at the point of slaughter.
    We don't want arabic words informing us about food Let's have an RS Label so that people can make an informed choice between conventional foods and those which follow any sort of Religious Standard [RS].
