REGARDING the debate on halal/kosher meat.

I do not think any method of slaughter is humane, but halal/kosher is especially cruel.

Cutting yourself on a knife in the kitchen is painful. Imagine being hung upside down and having your throat cut whilst fully conscious and sometimes while other animals are witnessing this before its their turn?

The religious text of Islam, the Quran, says it’s a sin to treat an animal cruelly, but this is exactly what is happening.

The reason animals are killed in this way is to drain all the blood from them as, in Islam, it’s forbidden to consume blood. I have a good solution: Don’t eat meat.
