Via Morrisons website today….MORRISONS SUPERMARKET HALAL POLICY 2013. Morrisons recognises the importance religious communities attach to food produced in accordance with their beliefs, and in response to customer demand we sell a number of branded halal and kosher products. Our customers who do not wish to purchase halal or kosher can choose our fresh meat in full confidence that all animals are pre-stunned and no prayer is read at slaughter. Our fresh meat is 100% British and uniquely the majority is processed at our own abattoirs – giving us unrivalled control over the provenance and quality of our meat.
The FAIL here is that if the animal is pre-stunned and no prayer is read at slaughter then its NOT Halal, so this is a lie. Apart from the fact that it is barbaric and cruel, Halal will eventually kill off British farming. A non Muslim cannot be involved in the production of this meat, so when they are springing up Halal factories here there and everywhere, there are no jobs for non Muslims. At the Neath one they were talking about bringing 3000 Halal butchers over from Pakistan to work there. How does this benefit the local community? We rang Chinese takeaways all over the country asking if their meat was Halal and many said yes. They explained that the suppliers had told them there was no difference in the meat and that it is cheaper, so you cant blame them for buying it. How many Muslims do you see in Chinese takeaways? Its cheaper now, but once British farming is destroyed then they will put their prices up. This cruelty has no place in modern Britain and we must protect our farming industry.
