UK Muslims split over halal slaughter ban proposal
British Muslims are battling over animal rights and calls for an end to halal slaughter in the country. It comes on the heels of a push to end the Jewish and Muslim traditional means of slitting an animals throat in order to allow the blood to flow completely out of the animals body.
Professor Bill Reilly, former president of the British Veterinary Association, called for curbing the practice of slaughtering animals without stunning.
"Non-stun slaughter … appears to be increasing. From an animal welfare perspective this cannot be acceptable," Reilly said.
