British farmers missing a Muslim opportunity
by Nicholas Robinson
British farmers could be losing out on a major revenue boost from the Muslim celebration of Qurbani next week.
A halal operator has told MeatInfo.co.uk that much of the lamb consumed as part of the celebration, which requires the animal to be ritually slaughtered to rules different from basic halal, is imported from Pakistan and is a loss to the UK economy.
"Performing Qurbani is an act of worship and obligated on every Muslim who can afford to do so once a year to remember the beloved prophet Ibrahim (AS)," said managing director of Janan Meats Naved Syed.
