UK – HALAL MEAT HAS BEEN ILLEGAL SINCE 1995

HALAL MEAT IS ILLEGAL & has been since 1995

LEGALLY, No-Stun Ritually Slaughtered Meat should be for Muslims ONLY
– NOT for Everyone.


There is a VAST Over-production of Halal Meat in UK, which needs to be curbed through legal enforcement by the Government.
Since 2012 at least 20% of Halal Meat & Poultry in UK is No-Stun Halal Ritually Slaughtered Meat that has been dedicated to Allah…and this meat is being sold in Supermarkets on the Halal Counters, mainly to Non-muslim customers – which is ILLEGAL. The majority of Muslims will only buy No-Stun halal meat from Halal Butchers Shops – they will not buy from supermarket Halal Counters, because they cannot be sure that the supermarket meat is authentic halal.
This has been confirmed by the Head of a leading Halal Authority – see his words here…

HALAL MEAT loses its certification unless sold in a Halal Shop

HALAL MEAT loses its certification unless sold in a Halal Shop

Concerns are that the halal meat has been contaminated at some stage – transportation without further halal certification at other logistics levels can be an issue and even handling by a Non-muslim can be considered to cause contamination issues; furthermore the fact that halal meat is being sold in a shop that also sells pork, can also put off muslim shoppers.
No-Stun Halal Meat is also being given to School pupils.
There are an increasing number of Schools serving HMC Halal Meat – this No-Stun Halal Meat & Poultry is given to ALL pupils, including Non-muslim pupils, often without their parent’s knowledge or consent. In far too many Primary Schools, the Nick Clegg policy of Free School Dinners for ALL ends up imposing Halal meat & poultry on All children, whether they are Muslims or not.
This is Illegal according to the Original Licence of Exemption (see image below) which clearly states that Halal Meat that is processed without any stun at all should be for Muslim consumption ONLY – NOT for everyone.

Questions need to be asked, such as WHY is the FSA (Food Standards Agency) turning a blind eye to the License of Exemption Rule?
Halal should just be a niche market in UK, like kosher has always been.

The Scottish Government have admitted that the placing of non-stunned meat slaughtered in the UK into the general food chain has been illegal since 1995.
SO WHY IS DEFRA TURNING A BLIND EYE?

The Scottish Government admits that halal meat has been illegal since 1995

The Scottish Government admits that halal meat has been illegal since 1995

The Welfare of Animals (Slaughter or Killing) Regulations (WASK) 1995 state that all animals slaughtered in the UK should be fully stunned to the point of insensibility before slaughter and until death. A dispensation exists in WASK for animals slaughtered for Halal and Kosher meat which states that these animals are not required to be stunned. Section 12.2 of the legislation states that meat from animals not stunned must ONLY be sold/ provided to Muslims & Jews.

The Original Licence of Exemption – which is definitely still valid – clearly states that No-Stun Halal & Kosher Meat should be for Jews & Muslims ONLY – NOT for Everyone.
Here is an image of that Licence which I obtained from a Muslim Charity website belonging to: The London Central Mosque Trust & the Islamic Cultural Centre (ICC)
…the highlight in black is theirs not ours, but the key words we care about are below that highlighted section, in that same paragraph…
LICENCE OF EXEMPTION
http://www.iccservices.org.uk/downloads/reports/farm_animal_welfare_council_report_on_welfare_of_livestock_slaughtered_by_religious_methods.pdf

The original Licence of Exemption from Regulations of Normal Livestock Slaughter

In 2012, around 20% of Halal meat produced in the UK was from animals slaughtered with no form of stunning. (Food Standards Agency. June 2012).

SECONDLY – REVERSIBLE STUNNING IS CRUEL

Animals are NOT being Stunned properly – so they become conscious again within seconds
Also of grave concern is the remainder of Halal meat – the 80% – which is sourced from animals that are subjected to a stun method called “Stun-to-stun”. This stunning method uses an amperage far below that recommended in guidelines for an effective stun. In fact Prof.Temple Grandin has said that the Livestock begin to recover within 15 seconds of the Reversible Stun being administered.
NOTE that Muslims say clearly that a Proper Stun could result in the death of the animal, so it cannot be used, because the Meat cannot be Halal.
Just to be clear on this – a Proper Stun will put the animal or poultry into an IRREVERSIBLE state of unconsciousness and into a PERMANENT state of being insensible to pain. That is the reason the traditional stun cannot be used for halal meat which can only be obtained from animals & poultry that are ALIVE at the point of slaughter.

Our traditional slaughter methods have been changed…
For example, sheep used to be stunned to the Head AND the Body – now they are given a Low stun to the Head ONLY – surely this is ILLEGAL too!

Comparison of Head & Body Stuner AND Head Only Stunner

Many devout Muslims speak out against the Reversible Stun that is being used in so many Slaughterhouses, saying it is more cruel than No Stun at all.
That is because the animals are becoming conscious after the throat cut, thrashing out and bellowing loudly on the slaughter line – until “Allah knows best”.
Reversible Stunning leads to completely unnecessary suffering in 21st Century Britain – it is very cruel.
It takes at least 6 minutes for cattle to die after the throat cut… at least 4 minutes for sheep & goats to die and at least 2 minutes for poultry & ducks.
AND many muslims completely reject Halal Meat that has been subjected to any form of stunning anyway!

After a public consultation in 2013, new stricter rules were passed for EU countries, which clearly stated the minimum stun that animals and poultry should be given, but here in Britain those rules were completely ignored and the old 1995 WASK Rules remain still to this day – PROOF HERE…

On 3-5-2014 the new EU WATOK Regulations were Revoked Before Implementation. WATOK = Welfare At Time Of Killing

On 3-5-2014 the new EU WATOK Regulations were Revoked Before Implementation.
WATOK = Welfare At Time Of Killing

Why have we tolerated this in 21st Century Britain?

We must BOYCOTT HALAL Meat – Leave it on the Supermarket shelves to rot & complain!
– Insist on conventional meat from your Butcher or buy direct from Farmers you know.
This will be difficult to avoid halal meat & poultry, because most, if not all meat going through Smithfield Meat Market is now halal ritually slaughtered! Note that Smithfield Market or, to give it its official name, London Central Markets, is the largest wholesale meat market in the UK and one of the largest of its kind in Europe.

NOTE that it is mandatory for ALL EC Meat to bear the Licence Number of the Abattoir where it was sourced!
Most Meat in UK will have an EC Meat Code number like this… it must be stamped on ALL Meat Carcasses AND it must appear on ALL packaged Meat.

Look out for a UK MEAT CODE like this one

Please research where the meat you are buying is sourced from – the 4 digit EC Meat Code on all meat sold in Europe is traceable back to source… however some supermarkets make it a little more confusing – see this from Morrisons…

WHERE’S THIS FROM App for iPhones & Androids
There is a very useful APP called WHF = ‘Where’s This From’ that will not tell you if the meat is halal or not, but it will tell you where the meat is sourced, if you type in that 4 digit code that is on the carcass or the meat packaging! Armed with the name of the Slaughterhouse of Cutting Plant you can Google that business to find out about it or ring up the slaughterhouse to ask if they say a blessing over their livestock or not.
This App is completely FREE to use!

THIRDLY we have the problem of the HARAM MEAT…


THIRDLY we have the problem of the mis-selling of the downgraded, sub-standard, Haram Meat mainstream – this Rejected Ritually Slaughtered meat, is being mis-sold to us, as if it is conventional meat… which it certainly isn’t.

HARAM MEAT has been dedicated to Allah and ritually slaughtered - but REJECTED by the Muslim Inspector as being "Unfit For Muslim Consumption"

HARAM MEAT has been dedicated to Allah and ritually slaughtered – but REJECTED by the Muslim Inspector as being “Unfit For Muslim Consumption”

THIRDLY we have the problem of the Halal Industry selling off cheap their Ritually Slaughtered downgraded, sub-standard, Haram Meat to Big Buyers; who then sell it on to anyone who will buy cheap meat, or will serve it up in mainstream restaurants & fast food takeaway chains, as if it is conventional meat.
Obviously it is NOT labelled HARAM MEAT – or no one would buy it!
This Haram Meat is also sold off cheap to the Butchers Shop Chains
In fact our butchers will say with a grin… “This meat is NOT halal” and offer us the sub-standard haram meat (usually at a cheaper price). We are not told that this meat has been Rejected at the Post Slaughter inspection at a halal slaughterhouse! Obviously no one would buy it if they knew the truth! Some butchers will know it is not actually meat that has been killed in a conventional way, but many of our butchers are also hoodwinked into buying this Haram Meat – often at a cheaper prices – and some have no knowledge of where it has come from.
Surely this practice is ILLEGAL too!
Muslims will say that some meat, after halal Ritual Slaughter, does not meet the grade & so it is not halal; this rejected ritually slaughtered meat is renamed ‘haram‘ and will then be discarded into the mainstream Food Chain… but for us (who are looking at this issue from a Non-muslim perspective) – this meat is still HALAL – it has been prepared in the same way that Muslim Meat should be prepared… it has been dedicated to a foreign god and slaughtered unstunned or ultra-low amperage stunned – it is certainly not Traditional Meat that was properly stunned before slaughter! See what Waitrose say on their website about this so-called ‘Non-halal’ meat – they give 3 reasons for selling it to unsuspecting shoppers!

NOTE that this mis-selling of haram meat is not unusual - ALL supermarkets are selling this sub-standard Haram Meat  off cheap to unsuspecting shoppers - and most Restaurant Chains are also serving up halal & haram meat to unsuspecting consumers.

NOTE that this mis-selling of haram meat is not unusual – ALL supermarkets are selling this sub-standard Haram Meat off cheap to unsuspecting shoppers – and most Restaurant Chains are also serving up halal & haram meat to unsuspecting consumers.

This Substandard Haram Meat is the rejected Halal Meat – it has been Ritually Slaughtered after being dedicated to Allah… BEFORE being rejected for reasons that we will never know, because records regarding why the Halal Inspector rejects the halal meat are not recorded – and certainly never published. So WHY should we accept meat that has been foisted off onto us as being conventional meat, when in reality it has been cast off from the halal market, rather than being thrown away, because it was deemed to be ‘Unfit For Muslim Consumption’?
Why are we tolerating this? Surely this is ILLEGAL too!

FOURTHLY – RITUALLY SLAUGHTERED MEAT IS BEING MIS-SOLD


Lastly there is so much evidence in every supermarket and many food outlets across Britain that we have checked that the Halal & the Haram Meat is being sold to us UNLABELLED as such.
We have had many Petitions & Letters to Governments over the years asking for more transparency in labelling, but the issue is either blamed on the EU, or ignored, or put off because it is uncertain what Halal Meat actually is… This uncertainty has arisen due to many arguments over the years, between different Islamic factions, who each have different standards, because the Truth of the matter is that there is NO AUTHENTIC HALAL STANDARD YET!
The fact that this meat has been involved in a ritual, dedicating it to a foreign god – Allah, is surely enough to warrant the labelling of this meat, as ‘Ritually Slaughtered’ – let’s call it ‘RS’ Meat.
Surely it is ILLEGAL to sell Halal or Haram Ritually Slaughtered meat & poultry to us UNLABELLED, as if it is the Conventional Meat we are looking for?
‘RS’ also stands for ‘Religious Standard’ and can cover ALL halal certified products too – whether Food or Non-Food.
‘RS’ can be used as a sign on all halal certified services and businesses that have gone down the halal compliance route to fulfil a ‘Religious Standard’.
We should not be relying on less than 5% Muslim minority for mainstream Consumer Information – that is the job of our elected Government and it is also the job of the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, who should be writing the necessary Policy to enforce proper labelling, so that we can make a reasoned choice about what we are buying.
We have been sharing a clear labelling idea since 2011 that will avoid ALL loopholes and overcome the problem of authenticity… but we are still waiting for it to be considered and implemented. See it here…

Label ALL Halal Products & Services

We suggest a ‘RS’ Label is required for ALL Halal Certified products & services
Here is why…… see this article next:

Unfair Trading – ‘RS’ Label Required
We need to know what we are buying and eating and we want to know if products & services are following a religious standard, or are traditional to our nation… LABEL HALAL!

PLEASE BOYCOTT HALAL MEAT & the Rejected HARAM meat from Halal Slaughterhouses.
We must stop buying it to reduce demand and curb the supply – and insist on conventional meat that has been properly stunned.
You are in for a treat – you will taste the difference!
BOYCOTT HALAL!

Boycott Halal – Pat Condell

Thank You and Well Done to Pat Condell for this informative video.

Well Done & Thanks to Pat Condell for Boycotting Halal and for creating this informative video.

Well Done & Thanks to Pat Condell for Boycotting Halal and for creating this informative video.

Pat explains…

I used to be a stand-up comedian. Now I make videos criticising religion and political correctness.

Patrick “Pat” Condell is a writer, political commentator, comedian and atheist internet personality… but here he has a serious message about how to overcome the fear of retribution that stops many of us publicly criticising the halal industry.
Pat speaks from experience, as videos he has released in the past have often caused an outcry from some in the Muslim community – and Pat even received Death Threats from Muslims last year.

It is great to know that Pat Condell is Boycotting Halal products & services too as we all are…
Watch and Listen to this video where he will explain why he is taking this action…
BOYCOTT HALAL

SRI LANKA CALL A HALAL BOYCOTT!

The Sinhalese Buddhist majority in  

Sri Lanka call for a Halal Boycott

Following the Government Minister raising his voice against the Halal Certification racket in SriLanka on 14th February,  the Sinhalese Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka has called for the abolition of the Muslim halal system of certifying foods & other goods and said NO to any new Mosques. There is now a Halal Crisis in Sri Lanka with a call to take action and to SAY NO TO HALAAL.

 ‘හලාල්’ වෙනුවෙන් උලමා-උලමා ගැටේ


‘හලාල්’ වෙනුවෙන් උලමා-උලමා ගැටේ

Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, is a naturally beautiful island off the Southern tip of India.
Until May 2009, when the government forces seized the last area controlled by Tamil Tiger rebels,  the people had experienced a long and bitter civil war for more than 25 years which arose out of ethnic tensions between the majority  Sinhalese and the Tamil minority in the northeast.  The violence killed more than 70,000 people, damaged the economy and harmed tourism in one of South Asia’s potentially most prosperous societies.

The Buddhist majority in the country are peace-loving and fair-minded, but it is vital not to hurt their feelings or insult other faiths.

They abhor the halal ritual slaughter which Muslims insist is necessary to produce halal meat. This outdated 7th Century Ritual Slaughter seems unnecessarily cruel to livestock in 21st Century Sri Lanka, but muslims insist that the Muslim way of slaughter is the best and they say that the animals get no feeling when the jugular vein of the neck is cut and the blood flows from the body… Muslims believe that immediately after the cut , the whole body of the animal will get numb and it will not feel any pain. Muslims are against stunning the animal, because they say that the blood will still be there and the animal will suffer.  However a  four year Dialrel Study carried  out by Veterinary Scientists from many countries of Europe found the opposite is true and they concluded that halal ritual slaughter causes unnecessary suffering.

The publication of that Scientific Paper is here and is entitled ‘Veterinary Concerns’

Sri Lanka say NO to Halal Meat and its Halal Animal Bi-Products

Sri Lanka say NO to Halal Meat and its Halal Animal Bi-Products

Buddhist monk Kirama Wimala Jothi has urged Sri Lanka’s non-Muslim majority to boycott any product with the halal label and asked the government to outlaw Islamic clerics issuing such certification.

A Facebook Group called  SAY NO TO HALAL in SRI LANKA has now been set up  with a growing following here…

SAY NO TO HALAAL

 http://www.facebook.com/SayNoToHalaal

Sri Lanka Say NO to HAlaal Reject All Halaal Products!  Halaal is a trojan horse of sharia law!

Sri Lanka Say NO to HAlaal
Reject All Halaal Products!
Halaal is a trojan horse of sharia law!

Then on 14th February, Sri Lanka Minister of Research and Technology Patali Champika Ranawaka, requested that all halal food producers remove the halal certificate. He warned that his Party, Sinhala Buddhist Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) would take action unless the producers of halal heed their demand.

Muslims say that from their perspective there’s nothing wrong if Christians or Buddhist will eat halal foods. It’s just a matter of choice if you like it or not;  but if you outlaw the selling of halal products, then that’s another matter. You are depriving the people of their freedom to choose.

Conversely, the halal certification process is now seen as a violation of the Rights of the Majority who want traditional foods and food services. The Sinhalese majority do not want different products in the market for different groups, because they say this will cause social segregation on religious lines.

It seems clear that halal certification isolates the Muslims followers of Islam from Sri Lankan society, creates tension and challenges the traditional Sri Lankan food culture.

COLOMBO:  A new hardline Sinhalese Buddhist group in Sri Lanka has called for the complete abolition of the Muslim halal system of certifying foods and other goods.

SRI LANKA - CEYLON - SAY NO TO HALAAL

SRI LANKA – CEYLON – SAY NO TO HALAAL

Yesterday thousands of Sinhalese supporters of the Buddhist majority attended a rally in a suburb of the capital, Colombo…

 The United National Party (UNP) urged The President to make his personal opinion known to the public on the matter of the Halal Certificates and to take action to remove them.

Youth activists at the rally wore T-shirts denouncing the Muslim halal method of slaughtering animals to eat.

Addressing the media in Colombo, UNP Western Provincial Council member Niroshan Padukka said, “As UNP, we do not agree with the concept of Halal Certificates, and support our leader Ranil Wickremesinghe’ s statement that the government should deal with the authorization of these certificates, rather than the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama Halal Certification Authority.

They reject halal products & services and the creeping Islamification of their country eg. a Mosque has been built in Dambulla, which is considered by many to be a sacred Buddhist area. The prime minister ordered the mosque’s relocation on Sunday, following an attack on the mosque on Friday by hardline Buddhists, including monks and all this amid a rising  religious tension in the country. The Buddhist Sinhalese make up three-quarters of Sri Lanka’s 20 million population.

Sri Lanka Demo in Columbio

Muslims make up less than 10% of the population , but the majority are seeing a rise in halal certified products. This unwanted over-production of halal products & services is considered by the  majority to be threatening their culture and their valued traditions. There is a gradual increase in halal restaurants and Markets and we have even found that Muslims have started to export Halal Fish to the UK from a halal supplier called Ceylon Fisheries Limited via their fully operational processing plant at Tudella, Ja-Ela, Negombo, Sri Lanka.

ALL CEYLON  CALL FOR HALAL BOYCOTT & REMOVAL OF HALAL CERTIFICATES

ALL CEYLON CALL FOR HALAL BOYCOTT & REMOVAL OF HALAL CERTIFICATES

The increasing halal trade within Sri Lanka is completely unacceptable to the majority, so Sinhalese leaders have now called for a boycott of halal meat and demanded shops clear their stocks by April, according to the AFP news agency reports.

Now the The leading Muslim religious leaders’ group, the All Ceylon Jamiyathul Ulama, has warned against violence threatened by striking Muslims – they have called for Muslims to fast instead. Muslims have now gone on strike in eastern Sri Lanka which have left schools, government offices, buses and the public market all shut after that decree from the main mosque.

ABC Radio Australia have produced this article entitled:
Sri Lankan monks launch halal meat boycott

BBC News ASIA has produced a VIDEO with this article entitled:
Sri Lanka hardline group calls for halal boycott

The Emirates have produced this article entitled:
Buddhist monks demand halal boycott

BOYCOTT HALAL call for International support & recognition that Non-Islamic Nations of the World have a right to protect their unique identities, uphold their values, but most importantly preserve their traditional food chain from a stealth takeover of halal products & services.
Surely we do not have to actually fight to stop the imposition of 7th Century barbaric halal Ritual Slaughter along with all that halal certification entails.
Animals deserve respect and so do the wishes of  all the different unique indigenous populations of the world.

The outcome was that the Government shut down the ACJU Halal Certification Authority.
Then a new Halal Authority was formed under Government control, but also with access to guidance from the Muslim Community Leaders.
ACJU = All Ceylon Jamiyvathul Ulama – was Shut Down.

However, it is the Right of those who are Not Followers of Islam to still choose to Reject Halal Certified products in Sri Lanka – which is what they do.

BOYCOTT HALAL in SRI LANKA

We Boycott Halal in Sri Lanka

Improve Animal Welfare in Abattoirs – Boycott Halal

Improve Animal Welfare in Abattoirs – We owe the animal respect says Professor Temple Grandin

As intelligent beings we humans can ensure the animals we eat lead good lives and die painlessly and without stress, indeed I believe we have a moral duty to ensure this.

Quote from a Doctor of Animal Science & University Professor…
“I think using animals for food is an ethical thing to do, but we’ve got to do it right. We’ve got to give those animals a decent life and we’ve got to give them a painless death. We owe the animal respect.”
—Temple Grandin

There is a lot of wrong doing in the Meat industry – we really must insist on change!

The top priority must be higher standards of animal welfare at the time of slaughter.
We really must raise the standards in our abattoirs in a way that is fitting for the 21st Century.

Temple Grandin (born August 29, 1947) is an American doctor of animal science and professor at Colorado State University, best selling author, and consultant to the livestock industry on animal behaviour.
As a person with high-functioning autism she cannot lie.

Grandin says…
When I design livestock-handling equipment, I can test-run the system in my head. It was easy for me to figure out how animals think and how animals would react because I think visually. Animals don’t think in language. They think in pictures. It’s very easy for me to imagine what would it be like to go through a system if you really were a cow, not a person in a cow costume but really were a cow, and autistic senses and emotions are more like the senses of an animal.

By serving as an advocate and speaker for the animal, Dr. Grandin has changed the demands placed on operations; by explaining the financial and other benefits to operators, she has also helped them justify the outlay in changes and building updates.

“Humane Livestock Handling” is required reading in every college and university level course on the subject today. Her thoughts and words have become a constant guardian of the animal through the new generations of cattle ranchers and slaughter house operators that now slowly enter the industry.

So it makes us wonder how the 21st Century Scholars of Islam can be so out of step…

MOO - We Like our Non-Halal Halal World

MOO – We Like our Non-Halal Halal World

NOW in the 21st Century the Scholars of Islam  insist on Non-Stun Ritual Slaughter and have issued a Fatwa On Stunning.

See it here on the Official website for ANSA – The Association of Non-Stun Abattoirs
Fatwa from Darul Ifta, Jamia Darul Uloom Karachi regarding stunning and other practices in the Halal meat industry
http://www.ansauk.co.uk/fatwa%20on%20stunning.html

It is such a disturbing fact that more & more of our slaughterhouses are reverting back to 7th Century Halal Ritual Slaughter practices!

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!

See the difference on this video between the traditional British way of slaughter and the muslim way…
WARNING – This video has scenes which are disturbing!

THIS IS HALAL (Advice: Over 18s Only)

WHY could this be happening???
Unnecessary animal cruelty is accompanied by much wrong doing… this is a quote from a muslim website – when you open the page – See Question 4 which says…

Some Halal meat supplying companies operating in the Halal meat industry in the UK abuse the law and voluntarily liquidate their companies after operating for some time, and by doing so free themselves of their accumulated debt, and then without paying their govt. taxes and debts owed to the farmers they open another company under another name and start operating again. In this way they undercut other law abiding companies engaged in providing Halal meat.  These people are a cause of disrepute to the whole Halal meat industry, and they are one of the main reasons why many shortcuts and bad practices aimed at cost cutting have been introduced into the industry.  Would Muslim certification bodies be justified denying certification to these companies?

ANOTHER FATWA…
This fatwa was issued in the lead article of the fourth issue of Inspire magazine, which was published on January 16, 2011, Yemeni-American jihadi cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki encourages jihadists living in the West to assist the financing of jihadi activities through any means possible – including theft, embezzlement and seizure of property. The U.S. government, and U.S. citizens are singled out as prime targets for these acts.

Jihad and Terrorism Threat

http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/4921.htm
Apart from the halal industry, there are many other ills in the animal handling industry… Not all of which are purely financially motivated or callous, but often stem from an misunderstanding of the needs and wants of animals.
Slaughterhouses must adapt. It’s not just the financially sound and humane thing to do, it also brings about better operations and better human/animal interactions with all the benefits that brings.

BOYCOTT HALAL and let’s aim by 2020 to transform our slaughterhouses
– get operations working closely or completely within Temple Grandin’s design.

Call on the Government to Investigate Halal ‘Charities’

We Call on the Government to Investigate the HMC & other Muslim Halal ‘Charities’

We have evidence that Halal businesses have been undercutting our Farmers, Slaughterhouses, Cutting Plants and Farming Businesses, because they have been allowed to claim CHARITY STATUS and thereby get EXEMPTION FROM TAX & VAT on the running costs of their businesses. More shocking details of this and other types of BUSINESS IRREGULARITIES can be clearly seen on the Halal Monitoring Services website where the following questions were asked by brother Umar of Coventry from Jamia Darul Uloom Karachi…

 Question 4 Some Halal meat supplying companies operating in the Halal meat industry in the UK abuse the law and voluntarily liquidate their companies after operating for some time, and by doing so free themselves of their accumulated debt, and then without paying their govt. taxes and debts owed to the farmers they open another company under another name and start operating again. In this way they undercut other law abiding companies engaged in providing Halal meat. These people are a cause of disrepute to the whole Halal meat industry, and they are one of the main reasons why many shortcuts and bad practices aimed at cost cutting have been introduced into the industry.

Halal Monitoring Committee – LIQUIDATION

 

HMC LIQUIDATION

Background… HALAL BUSINESSES GOING BANKRUPT? Could this be because Muslim Businessmen have had their Tax & VAT Avoidance Charity Status Scam stopped??? HALAL Companies have been operating a TAX AVOIDANCE SCAM by claiming Charity status to get out of paying the Tax & VAT that our own Farmers and Producers have to pay on their business running costs… This is how HALAL MEAT has been able to undercut traditional meat prices over the past decade… by20%+ PROOF:  Halal businesses get EXEMPTION FROM TAX & CHARITY STATUS!!! I found this document – at last the HMRC has put their foot down in UK on one scam! 24th October 2011 – HMC ACQUIRES VAT REGISTRATION Over the past two years, the National Executive Committee initiated a review of the governance and structure of the organisation. This led to the successful registration with the Charity Commission in May 2009 as since our inception, we have remained a not for profit organisation. Earlier this year, we started a dialogue with HMRC regarding our VAT status. As a faith based voluntary organisation, our understanding was HMC is exempt from VAT similar to other charitable organisations. However, after a series of meetings, HMRC has advised we should become VAT registered based on the nature of services we provide. We have today communicated the impact of this to certified plants and outlets. Reflecting on the change, Chairman of HMC, Shaykh Yunus Dudhwala said: “We appreciate this change will impact on our stakeholders but are confident our partners will appreciate the context of this change and the mandatory nature of the change. More over, we are working closely with HMRC to ensure that whilst we fulfil our legal obligations, the impact of the changes is minimal. For this reason, the change in charges will only apply to plants, and this will have minimal impact as VAT registered companies are able to reclaim the VAT.

QUESTION:  Just wondering how many illegal  Halal Business Scams are going on in other countries???

~ AND the HMC is not an isolated case… it happened in CANADA too! The Canada Revenue Agency revoked IRFAN-Canada’s charity status in April 2011 after having concluded that it financed the terrorist organization Hamas. This Video explains that the meat you eat has been Halal-slaughtered AND how your money is not only paying for halal-slaughtered meat, but how your money is being sent to various terrorist groups. Point de Bascule: Halal slaughter, Hamas monetary gain The certification agency is controlled by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), the main Muslim Brotherhood organization in Canada. MAC owns the building where the certification agency and the cultural centre are based and the administrators of the certification agency are former MAC directors or they have publicly endorsed MAC’s positions in the past. MAC’s halal program is part of a global Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy. SEE  THIS  VIDEO…

 

QUESTION – Why are we seeing such a rise in Halal Foods in Non-Islamic Countries???

 ANSWER…

In 2010 in Islamabad, a leader of the Islamist organization, the mufti of Bosnia, Mustafa Ceric, urged Muslims…

“to conquer the world through Halal movement.”

Country: United Kingdom, Europe

A leading European Muslim cleric has urged the international Muslim community to conquer the world through the halal movement. He is reported to have said that the halal movement can enable Muslims to rule the global economy because its food and other services are the basic needs of every human being. He claimed halal means “pure and hygienic”, and that the non-Muslim world has no hesitation in accepting it. His comments follow Operation Nehemiah’s report on a video produced by the World HalalForum, which uses slick advertising and exploits commercial gain in a bid to sell halal as a global brand. It is becoming apparent that halal is being used as an instrument of Islamic mission (dawa),bringing the oblivious non-Muslim world increasingly under the authority of sharia law.

QUESTION:  Just wondering how many illegal  Halal Business Scams are going on in other countries???

Back to our problems in the UK, especially the Business irregularities outlined above…

QUESTION:  In these times of austerity, WHY are we allowing such disrespectful flagrant cases of wrongdoing in any British Charities or Businesses?

Clearly this malpractice is putting our own hard-working Farmers livelihood in jeopardy? I have asked my local Farmers & Butchers  and others in the Food Industry that I have met on-line…

QUESTION:  WHY have you not spoken out about this ‘halal’ outrage long ago???

The answer in all cases was – “We are afraid of being labelled a ‘Racist’!” Clearly speaking out against Islam is not a racist issue and speaking out against Muslim’s who have no respect for the Law or Traditions of our country is not being racist either… Muslims are a multi-racial group of people from diverse cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and nationalities… You cannot be a Racist for opposing them.

We Must Call on the Government to Investigate the HMC & other Halal ‘Charities’ & ALL Business Irregularities…

Let’s Clean Up Britain!

EU Strategy for the protection and welfare of animals

European Parliament resolution of 4 July 2012 on the European Union Strategy for the Protection and Welfare of Animals 2012–2015 (2012/2043(INI))

WE ALL NEED TO WRITE TO OUR MEPs TO URGE THEM TO SUPPORT THIS BILL

We should all be writing to our MEPs to get them to support this:

European Parliament resolution of 4 July 2012 on the European Union Strategy for the Protection and Welfare of Animals 2012–2015

(2012/2043(INI)) See 49 & 50 & 67

Texts adopted   Wednesday, 4 July 2012 – Strasbourg
Provisional edition

Strategy for the protection and welfare of animals

 

49. Points to the concern among European citizens, expressed through their petitions to Parliament, about abuse of the derogations for un-stunned slaughtering in the EU; is particularly concerned that the current derogation for un-stunned slaughter is abused to a large extent in some Member States, to the detriment of animal welfare, of farmers and of consumers; urges the Commission to accelerate its evaluation on the labelling of meat from animals slaughtered without stunning and to present its report before 2013, following its commitment to undertake this evaluation in 2011; highlights that the question of consumers not being informed as to whether or not the meat they are buying is from animals slaughtered without stunning is an issue of great public interest for reasons of both transparency and animal suffering; underlines, however, that labelling is not an alternative to proper enforcement as it can only guide consumers if the information provided is verified and correct;

 

50. Stresses the need to establish more effective protection measures for animals which are exported from the EU to third countries for slaughter;

 

See also the importance of 67. 

67. Recalls that the Parliament considers that such a Framework Law should not prevent producers from introducing voluntary systems which go beyond EU rules, and believes that those systems should also be science based and could be promoted by certified and cohesive labels; calls on the Commission to build on its communication COM(2009)0584 by producing a study, if appropriate accompanied by legislative proposals, on EU-wide labelling schemes for meat and dairy products, aimed at informing consumers about the farming methods used, and their impact on the welfare of animals, to achieve the maximum effective and consistent transparency and communication to consumers;

European Parliament resolution of 4 July 2012 on the European Union Strategy for the Protection and Welfare of Animals 2012–2015 (2012/2043(INI))

We need to look into this more deeply as there may be other relevant clauses that we need to highlight that are more obscure at the moment.

UK PRINT OUT & DISTRIBUTE Unstunned Halal is supposed to be for Muslims ONLY

RITUAL SLAUGHTER Abattage Rituel FRANCE

HALAL RITUAL SLAUGHTER IN FRANCE
Abattage Rituel
Halal meat is not clearly labelled there is no transparency, so customers do not know the livestock was ritually slaughtered.
100 % of animals in some areas of France are now killed in this disgraceful way, yet Muslims represent only 7% of the population.
The reason for this it is cheaper not to stun and with the rise of halal slaughter a dangerous precedent is being set…

Customers are Misled into buying Halal
The situation is getting increasingly worse
Outdated 7th Century Halal Slaughter increasing


Customers Misled into buying Halal

Halal products & services are not clearly labelled there is no transparency, so customers  unwittingly buy halal and do not know the livestock endured ritual slaughter.
Customers have been deliberately deceived since Bruno Mayor and Hortefeux, the former Minister of Agriculture and interior minister, opposed the labelling of meat & defeated the proposal adopted by the European Parliament in April 2011 which called for individual countries to ensure a traceability through labeling which states the conditions of slaughter.

~
La différence, soit la plus grosse partie des viandes issues de ce type d’abattage, se retrouve dans le circuit classique à l’insu des consommateurs volontairement trompés puisque Bruno Le Maire et Brice Hortefeux, lorsqu’ils étaient respectivement ministre de l’Agriculture et ministre de l’Intérieur, se sont opposés à l’étiquetage des viandes et ont mis en échec la proposition adoptée par le Parlement européen, en avril 2011, d’une traçabilité passant par un étiquetage précisant les conditions d’abattage des animaux.

The situation is getting increasingly worse
– There is an increasingly growing vast over-production of halal meat in France –
– Halal production is increasing despite public demonstrations to stop new abattoirs –
– Farmers are pressurised into halal production –

Outdated 7th Century Halal Slaughter increasing
In its report of scientific expertise on animal pain (2009), INRA indicates that slaughtered cattle can take up to 14 minutes before losing consciousness …
14 minutes of extreme agony and suffering!
