Muslim group: 'Make halal slaughter legal'
by Peter Vinthagen Simpson
The Muslim Association of Sweden (SMF) has renewed calls for the legalization of religious slaughter practices such as kosher and halal.
In a letter to the Swedish government, SMF chairperson Mahmoud Aldebe, challenges the government to respect the "democratic rights" of Sweden's Muslims to exercise their "religious freedoms" and find a way to permit the practice.
He points out that all other European Union countries have found a way to permit religious slaughter practices in a way that most religious authorities accept.
