Ban Halal Slaughtering now
Halal is a barbaric and disgusting Islamic tradition that has been imported into our country and with the connivance of our top supermarkets it is allowed to flourish. A recent investigation – which will alarm anyone concerned about animal cruelty – has revealed that schools, hospitals, pubs and famous sporting venues such as Ascot and Twickenham are controversially serving up meat slaughtered in accordance with strict Islamic law to unwitting members of the public More than 70 per cent of the New Zealand lamb sold in Britain comes from halal slaughterhouses without the fact being declared on the label. All the slaughtermen in these establishments must be Muslim and say a prayer when making the cut across the animal’s throat which is supposed to kill it, but doesn't as it takes up to three-four minutes for the animal to die in agony. If you think this method of slaughter should be abolished forthwith and all imports of meat slaughtered in this way banned. Please sign the petition which I will then take to the Scottish Parliament.
