Conn. inmate sues to get halal meat
A Connecticut prison inmate has sued the state, claiming that his religious freedom as a Muslim has been violated by the lack of halal meat.
Ricardo Collins filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court on Dec. 23, The Hartford Courant reported.
"I am a American Muslim and I am being denied the halal meat for the two Islamic feast days," Collins said in his complaint. "The halal meat for the two feasts have great 'spiritual meaning' to the Muslim community all over the world."
