Antwerp: City to offer stunning for Eid al-Adha sacrifice
Islam in Europe
During Eid al-Adha, the city of Antwerp will, as in recent years, open up temporary slaughterhouses for Muslims to slaughter their sheep sacrifice. This is per request of the Flemish and federal authorities. For the first time, however, the city will also offer an option to stun the sheep before slaughter. The city intended to offer this option last year, but didn't due to an administrative error. The city council is encouraging the city's Muslim residents to donate money instead, or get their meat from a butcher.
