Former Lancashire county leader is criticised over animal stunning motion
by Bill Jacobs
Lancashire Council of Mosques chairman Salim Mulla has criticised former county leader Geoff Driver for imposing his animal welfare views on the Muslim community.
He spoke out after the Tory urged the giant authority to pre-stun all animals killed for meat in school meals.
Coun Driver put a motion to this month's county council meeting calling for this to become official policy despite the view of some Muslims that such meat was not 'halal' as defined under Islamic law.
