Belgium To Ban Ritual Slaughter, Sign Petition




The petition "Stop the barbaric slaughter without stunning of animals under the guise of religion" has almost reached its target of 4,000 signatures.

The petition, which I've also signed, is addressed to the Belgian politician Ben Weyts, who is Flemish Minister for Animal Welfare, and to Janez Potočnik, the European Commissioner for the Environment.

Ben Weyts said on the Belgian television show De zevende dag on the VRT network that he would actively pursue a total ban on ritual slaughter. The ban, he added, could be implemented by 2015, as well as further legislation.

In the meantime, Weyts called for Muslims and Jews to adhere to current laws, which allow animal slaughter without previous stunning to be carried out only in licensed abattoirs.

The cabinet office of his Belgian government counterpart, Wallon Minister for Animal Welfare Carlo Di Antonio, indicated it would "take the same shape as that suggested by" the Flemish Minister.

Please sign the petition now:
The slaughter of animals without stunning is not only barbaric, it is also very painful as vets proclaim for years. Waiting animals know exactly what is going to happen, they are stressed by the smell of blood, urine, feces, by the cries of fear and pain of the animals slaughtered in front of and before them. Muslims do not have a valid reason to slaughter animals in such a cruel way: apparently nowhere the Koran states that animals may not be stunned for slaughter! As well for the Jews: Kosher slaughter is as reprehensible as halal ! There is no immediate or painless killing for slaughter without stunning. We live in the 21st century. Peoples knowledge has grown such as the means to slaughter animals painless. If you really want to hold on to the tradition of 'cutting throats', then just do it to animals who were stunned before slaughter! That is not only human, it is a form of respect! Or do Muslims nor Jews need to respect animals? I do not believe that. Religion should never be an excuse to let animals suffer ! Stop the slaughter of animals without stunning worldwide. Provide a law that forbids slaughter without stunning in Belgium and Europe, and hopefully the whole world will follow. Do it now !

  1. To understand the Science behind the Halaal Meat, We need to understand the Medical Test. Doctor generally asks first thing to go for Blood Test. Because Blood caries Germs also, it mostly shows the first symptoms of Deceases. There are many dangerous deceases spread by Blood. In all other processes of Slaughter the blood does not comes out of the animal, so it could be very dangerous to eat those un-hygienic meat. BUT with the process of Halaal, Blood comes out of the Animal Naturally. So it is not true that if the Slaughter is not according to Islam, then just say Bismillah and eat it. Even in Surah-006 Al-Inaam, Ayaat 121, Allah very clearly warned NOT to eat on which Allah's name has not been proclaimed. So always be careful about Halaal and Haraam. Life is a gift from Allah to protect it and be healthy.

    Drink Halaal, Eat Halaal, Talk Halaal, Listen Halaal, Wear Halaal. In Brief Adopt Halaal in your whole life.

  2. The rising acceptance of halal meat due to its scientific and hygienic slaughtering and processing methods is spicing up the US 600 billion global halal meat market impressively.

    Studies have shown that halal slaughter protects consumers from many diseases which are not possible in the conventional methods used in many countries.

    Ahead of a key halal conclave in Sharjah, experts opine that halal slaughter of animals has a great role in preventing infectious diseases, and is seen one of the main reasons for the popularity of the product even among non-Muslims.

    “The way the slaughtering process is carried out is of significant importance for both human health and safety and quality of the meat. Halal slaughter involves cutting of jugular veins, throat and oesophagus, which facilitates draining of blood from the animal and thus prevents growth and multiplication of harmful micro-organisms,” said Dr. Ibrahim Hussein Ahmed Abd El Rahim, Professor of Infectious Diseases, Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah Al-Mukarama, Saudi Arabia.

    “Prevention of neck separation is very important to complete the bleeding process to remove all the blood from carcass. Blood is a typical media for proliferation of different kinds of microbes, therefore its complete removal from the slaughtered animal is vital to protect consumers from infectious diseases,” he said.

    Dr. Ibrahim Hussein Ahmed Abd El Rahim will be attending the upcoming Halal Congress Middle East that will be held at Expo Centre Sharjah from December 16 to 18, 2013. It will be organized alongside the 2nd OIC Halal Middle East Exhibition which is held under the patronage of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.

    Globally, the halal market that spans from food to finance and tourism is worth US 3 trillion. According to latest estimates, halal products have two billion consumers worldwide that grows more than 20 per cent annually.

    Realizing the importance of the subject, a panel discussion will be dedicated to the science behind halal during the three-day congress. To be chaired by Shawky Ibrahim Abdel-Karim Allam, Sheikh Al-Azhar, Grand Mufti of Egypt, the discussion will take up issues of stunning, mechanical slaughtering, tasmiah and animal feed, among others.

    Panellists for the discussion include Mufti Taqi Usmani from Pakistan; Mufti Mustafa Ceric from Bosnia; Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gainutdin, from Russia, Mr Nabil A Molla, Secretary General of GCC Standardization Organization and Dr. Abdulqahir Mohammad Qamar of International Islamic Fiqah Academy, Saudi Arabia.

    It will also feature representatives from the Standards and Metrology Institute for the Islamic Countries; Emirates Standards & Metrology Authority-UAE; National Accreditation Council-Pakistan; JAKIM – Halal Certification Authority-Malaysia; MUI – Majlis Ulema-Indonesia; and Halal Science Centre-Thailand.

    Besides, reflecting the surging trade between the region and Australia, Meat and Livestock Australia, has signed up as Platinum Sponsor to talk about the Goodness of Australian Meat.

    The association of Meat and Livestock Australia with the congress comes at a time when Australia’s red meat exports to the Middle East in May this year totalled 16,492 tonnes, a 46 per cent increase year-on-year and 7 per cent above the previous record set in April 2013, according to Meat and Livestock Australia figures.

    Other topics to be taken up for discussion at the congress include tapping the growing halal trade; halal cosmetics, pharmaceuticals & tourism; benefits of halal certification; Islamic banking & takawful; technology for halal food traceability and harmonization of halal standards.

  3. The science claim is complete nonsense Iftikhar, blood carries diseases as much as any other tissue. There are Masai in Africa who regularly harvest blood from their cattle and eat it. The science you claim is medieval ignorance of what we would call science today. Halal and Kosher are superstitions...

  4. This Ifkhtar Amad jerk gets on my nerves with all his rationalistic pseudo-science about any subject relating to Islam's barbaric practices. The "London School of Islamic Studies"??? The LIE has fallen many rungs since great economists taught there (free enterprise economists, that is). Now it has a department devoted to the study of Islamic voodoo. I'm betting that with a course in Halal food preparation, it has optional courses in "The Science of Beheading Humans, Apes, and Pigs," "Rape Etiquette," and "Efficient Modes of Mass Executions."

    1. Muslims are not going to sign the petition. Halal meat is for Muslims only. No body is forcing non-Muslims to eat halal meat. Now all the big stores are selling halal meat because they want to increase their sale as well as profit.

  6. Unfortunately Edward your Islamophobia, at least that's what it smells like, is missing the fact that Kosher slaughter as a medieval practise will also be banned. All of these superstitions should be stopped.

    1. Anonymous who hides behind "anonymity": You're damned right I'm Islamophobic! I fear Islam. I don't fear Jews because I don't eat kosher and the Jews aren't trying to convert or kill me. There's much I don't like about Judaism (or any religion), but then I have more Jewish friends than non-Jewish, and no Muslim friends at all, because any such "friendship" would be a false face on the part of the Muslim. The Koran prescribes taqiyya, and keeping non-Muslim "friends" at an arm's length.

  7. My medical and scientific background tells me that this is total bullshit! It is merely a defence of a directive laid out in an old book of lies purported to be written by a murderous paedophile who liked nothing better than to cause suffering to both humans and animals. How the evils of one individual can be glorified and emulated by millions of idiots wordwide is totally beyond my comprehension. This is the year 2014 (not 1014) and is supposed to be an age of rationality and science, not one of superstition and stupidity. Man is supposed to have at least some progress over the last 1000 years, surely!

  8. Putting aside ALL religious talk, the most important factor are the ANIMALS being slaughtered Halal style. It is the ANIMALS we are fighting for! THEY are all sentient beings who feel fear and pain the same as we do. They have a Soul just like us and were NOT put on this earth to be our dinner!!
    MAN SEEMS TO BELIEVE HE HAS THE "GOD-GIVEN RIGHT" TO KILL/CULL/SLAUGHTER & EAT LITERALLY _ANYTHING_ AND _EVERYTHING_ HE DAMN WELL CHOOSES, HE DOES NOT! WE ARE BUT A SPEC OF DUST IN THIS UNIVERSE AND MAN IS _NOT_ IN COMMAND. HE IS _NOT_ IN CONTROL AND THE SOONER HE REALIZES THAT THE BETTER! - - - ANIMALS/BIRDS ETC. WERE NOT PUT ON THIS EARTH FOR OUR ENTERTAINMENT, TO BE OUR FOOD, TO BE ABUSED, USED IN SACRIFICIAL KILLINGS, WILDLIFE KILLING CONTESTS, TO BE HUNTED AND KILLED, CULLED BECAUSE MAN DECIDES THERE ARE TOO MANY OF THEM, TORTURED, BUTCHERED, SLAUGHTERED, THEIR PARTS USED FOR HUMAN MEDICINES, THEIR FUR TAKEN FROM THEM WHILST STILL ALIVE FOR COATS, HORNS, TUSKS ETC. TOO, HACKED FROM THEIR LIVE BODIES FOR TRINKETS, THEIR ENTIRE HEADS FOR TROPHIES ON WALLS, THEIR LIVE BODIES USED IN ALL MANNER OF ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS/RESEARCH – LIVE CATS & DOGS BOILED AND BURNED ALIVE IN SUCH AS CHINA WHERE OVER 18 MILLION DOGS ARE KILLED EACH YEAR FOR THEIR MEAT OR FUR, (INCLUDING THE SOUTHERN REGIONS OF GUIZHOU, GUANGDONG AND GUANGXI) PLUS SOUTH KOREA, VIETNAM, THAILAND, INDIA, INDONESIA, THE PHILIPPINES (I COULD GO ON..) MAN DOES NOT HAVE THE “GOD-GIVEN RIGHT” TO DO AS HE PLEASES ON THIS PLANET! HE IS NOT IN CONTROL, NOT IN COMMAND “HE” IS ONLY A MINUTE PART OF A SHARED EARTH WHERE EVERY LIVING BEING HAS EQUAL VALUE. ANIMALS DO HAVE A SOUL! THEY ARE SENTIENT LIVING BEINGS AND FEEL FEAR AND PAIN THE SAME AS WE DO. WE ARE MEANT TO BE THEIR GUARDIANS -THEIR PROTECTORS WHO SHOULD LOVE AND CARE FOR THEM, TREAT THEM WITH RESPECT AND KINDNESS, AND I AM TOTALLY OUTRAGED, LIVID WITH ANGER -COUPLED WITH DESPAIR AND TOTAL DISBELIEF AT WHAT FURTHER TORTUREOUS, INHUMANE, BARBARIC "FATES" MAN CONTINUALLY THINKS UP FOR THEM. “INDIFFERENT” MANKIND SHOULD BE WIPED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH - I FIND MYSELF FOREVER THINKING "STOP THE WORLD I WANT TO GET OFF, I DO NOT WANT TO BE A PART OF THIS CRUEL,HEARTLESS, GREEDY INDIFFERENT, EVIL WORLD" I FEEL SO ASHAMED TO BE HUMAN (Dianna Grace 4/11/14)
