Ban the Cruel Practice of Halal and kosher Killing In The UK
BAN HALAL AND KOSHER SLAUGHTER IN THE UK
Responsible department: Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Under UK law, all farmed animals have to be stunned to render them unconscious before slaughter. However, a special legal exemption (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1995/731/contents/made#sdiv12) which applies ONLY to Halal and Kosher slaughter, means that animals slaughtered, “by a religious method” for halal or kosher meat - are exempt. We believe that on animal cruelty grounds, that this exemption should be removed. This not racist, is not anti Muslim or anti Jewish. It concerns unimaginable animal cruelty in the UK.
Animals slaughtered by the above method suffer prolonged painful and cruel deaths, after their throat is cut they are left to bleed to death whilst still fully concious and in unimaginable pain .
