Denmark outlaws Jewish and Muslim ritual slaughter as of next week
Jewish and Muslim ritual slaughter will be illegal in Denmark starting on Monday, by order of Agriculture and Food Minister Dan Jørgensen.
Ritual slaughter, known in Hebrew as shechita, is already banned in Poland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.
The Netherlands attempted to ban shechita, but a deal was brokered, legalizing the practice in 2012.
