Department for Environment,Food and Rural Affairs(DEFRA),
which is a Government body, has issued its NEWS RELEASE
on the 8th March/2005 titled:
GOVERNMENT RESPONSE TO THE FARM ANIMAL WELFARE COUNCIL'S(FAWC)
REPORT ON WELFARE AT SLAUGHTER
In this response,the Animal Welfare minister,Mr Ben
"the Government has maintained its position in
not accepting FAWC's recommendation that slaughter without
prior stunning should be banned!
He also said: the Government respected the rights of
communities in Britain to slaughter animals in accordance
with the requirements of their religion"
And In his response to Recommendation 201 he said:
"the Government does not intend to ban the slaughter
of animals without prior stunning by religious groups..the
Government is committed to respect the rights of religious
groups (Jewish and Muslims)..."
We like here,on behalf of the British muslims, to thank
the Minister/Government and DEFRA for their understanding
and acceptance of our religious rights and needs in
animal slaughter/DHABH,without the use of any stunning
technique,and as in the present British law now.
like to confirm again that ,the religious method/without
stunning,is the only HUMANE method which was prescribed
by GOD ..and was implemented by all prophets of GOD:
Abraham,Moses,Jesus and Muhammad,the final prophet(peace
be upon them) as a mercy to man and to animals!
Not only that ,but it does give us also the most healthy
type of meat,as prooved by the new medical sciences.
We like to appeal to the Minister and to DEFRA,to reconsider
: this Divine humane
method for all animal slaughter in Britain,and to STOP
all stunning techniques,for the welfare of the animals
and for the Health of our nation!
We, also like to appeal to all the muslims involved
in animal slaughter/"HALAL",to stick to prophet
Muhammad's way in animal slaughter/DHABH,and without
any type of stunning/torture techniques,especially when
the law of the land allows us to do that.
Unfortunately,we have to admit that ,the majority of
the so called:"HALAL MEAT".".HALAL FOOD"
which are sold to the Muslims today ARE NOT HALAL BUT
And those "muslims" involved in this "HARAM"
business, are Betraying Sayyidna Muhammad,peace be upon
him,cheating their own muslim community , inflicting
a lot of cruely on animals and feeding our innocent
"Haram" unhealthy meat!!!!
Here is a list of some Websites which expose the the
Harams,Health hazards and the cruelties inflicted on
the innocent animals when stunning is used:
-www.iccuk.org/www.iccservices.org.uk(Regent Park mosque/Islamic
-www.mcb.org.uk/health (Muslim Council of Britain)
-www.halalmc.org (Halal Monitoring Committee)
issue by the muslims,is important to emphasize:
the ANIMALS before doing any halal slaughter: on natural
diet/organic(grass and plants,as mentioned in the Qur'an):
And to avoid completely animal proteins Genetically
modified feed and all hormones,antibiotics and chemicals,
in order to have TAYYIB meat(natural,pure,wholesome,healthy
safe and blessed...)
Time has come to put our house in order,especially in
Halal meat and Food!

(I am available for interview).
