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?

UK – HALAL MEAT IS ILLEGAL & has been since 1995
http://halalfocus.net/uk-scottish-government-admit-halal-meat-is-illegal

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!

Research where your Meat & Poultry was sourced from before you buy.

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!

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.

EU ALERT: Horse & Pig Burgers raise fears for halal products across Europe

 

Horse meat in burgers ‘could be health risk’

Beefburgers containing horse meat could have been made from “diseased or injured animals” and be unsafe to eat, environmental health experts say.

Muslim websites are expressing fears of a HALAL Clampdown in Europe after PIG & HORSE MEAT is discovered in Beefburgers across the UK and Ireland.

The BeHalal website point out…

“As well as detecting the presence of horse and pig DNA in some burgers, it also tested 31 beef meal products such as cottage pie, beef curry pie and lasagne. Some 21 were found to have pig DNA but no traces of horse DNA were found. Traces of horse DNA were detected in batches of raw ingredients, including some from the Netherlands and Spain. Our industry sources have advised us that ABP, which owns two of the businesses named by the FSAI, Silvercrest Foods and Dalepak Hambleton and is one of the leading beef producers and exporters in Europe. And Liffey Meats Ltd who own the halal world cuisine trademark. Both companies produce halal product lines at the same sites. Often companies producing meat products also pack for other brands and however, it is not clear at this stage if halal lines are affected or how extensive this problem may be for the halal industry. This is not the first time the halal industry maybe affected and continues to face fraud… This calls for better self-regulation by halal certification organisations and importantly for them to have competent staff, effective systems and checks to protect against an industry fraught by higher levels of fraud to address this issue.”

ABP & Liffey Meats Ltd are leading European beef producers with halal product lines. Liffey Meats Ltd own the halal world cuisine trademark.

Following the ‘shock discovery’ of horse meat in burgers, the Food Standards Agency has issued an assurance that the burgers ARE safe to eat.
How can they say that?
Considering that no-one knew that the horse meat was in the burgers, there is no way those horses’ passports can have been checked to ensure they were in fact destined for the food chain!
Horse Passports have 2 ‘declarations’ in them: one stating they are NOT intended for slaughter for human consumption, and one stating they ARE intended for slaughter for human consumption.
If the first Declaration is signed by the owner, the horse may be given any amount and types of drugs and medication prohibited for use in animals destined for the human food chain, such as certain anti-biotics, anti-histamines and steroidal drugs. Also, horses should not enter the human food chain within 28 days of being treated for internal parasites.
Without knowing the status of these horses’ passports, I just don’t see how anyone can issue any assurances that that horse meat is indeed safe to eat…
BOYCOTT HALAL! You know it makes sense!

We UK Consumers appeal to those in power to authorise the writing of a suitable policy that will make Labelling ALL Religiously Slaughtered meat a Legal Requirement by Law, so that we all know what we are buying & eating in plain English. We UK Consumers want ALL Ritually Slaughtered Meat & Bi-Products LABELLED with a simple ‘RS’ no matter how it is stunned or what its source is. ‘RS’ can also stand for ‘Religious Standard’ and could therefore be used on ALL Products that come under any Religious Standard.

This 'RS' Label signifies a Religious Standard and/or Ritually Slaughtered meat is involved in manufacture &/or distribution of this product.

 ‘RS’ Label 

Anywhere & anything associated with Ritual Slaughter or a Religious Standard needs labelling ‘RS’ so we fully understand what we are choosing to buy or eat.

The UK needs Consumer confidence to be restored and this will only happen when there is more transparency in Labelling of ‘RS’ food, goods & services.

We also fully support the EU Parliament’s move to Label ALL meat that has been obtained by Slaughter without stunning in the Food Information Regulation (FIR).

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…

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. It is important for all our partners to support us on our journey to ensure the provision of genuine Halal.” http://www.halalmc.net/news_events/news.html Scroll Down Page To See 7th article entitled… 24th October 2011 – HMC ACQUIRES VAT REGISTRATION   ILLEGAL BUSINESS PRACTICE!

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.

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…

Two Causes For Concern Regarding Morrisons

TWO CAUSES FOR CONCERN REGARDING  MORRISONS

1. MORRISONS have instructed their Meat Departments NOT put Meat Codes on Lamb or Pork or Chicken or Turkey… in fact only their Beef now displays the EU Meat Code.

WHY are Morrisons leaving the Meat Codes off of most of their  packaged meat??? 

TODAY I have been told by the Food Standards Authority (FSA) that this breaks the EU Regulations,

which state that ALL Packaged Meat MUST carry the EU Meat Code & Country of Slaughter.

 

If anyone doubts this, or if you just want to have your say to Simon Tudor, who is the person at the FSA who is responsible for halal, but admits very little… Tel: 0207 276 8339.

 

Here is an example of how Morrisons puts the EU Meat Code on their Beef (ONLY)

 

 

2. This morning I have found out from one of our Members that some MORRISONS Branches are selling LAMB Meat Code 6057

This 6057 Meat Code means that the meat is from Randall Parker Foods, Andover

… A HALAL CERTIFIED SLAUGHTERHOUSE & CUTTING PLANT!

 

WHY are Morrisons selling meat from a Halal Slaughterhouse & a Halal Cutting Plant???

 

Proof:
 RANDALL PARKER FOODS clearly say on their website…

All our Halal lamb products are guaranteed to have been produced and processed in accordance with Islamic rites as well as our own high animal welfare standards. We are approved by the Halal Food Authority and we have been producing Halal products for many years. We are an established and reliable producer of Halal lamb for both the home and international markets.
Our processing is carried out by dedicated and fully qualified Halal slaughtermen with supervision by our own welfare team and UK Government veterinarians.
We implement strict codes of practice and policies to protect both animal welfare and the Halal standard.
We acknowledge the application of Islamic rules and principles may differ between communities and we will be happy to discuss the opportunities we have to meet your requirements.
It is vital to us that our Muslim consumers can buy and enjoy with total peace of mind.

RING MORRISONS HQ & COMPLAIN – 0845 6116111

Careful who you give you details to – I have crossed paths with Muslims there in the past -notably Madge Farid who was most rude. Also the Customer Care Manager, Claire Thornton told me that Daniel Armstrong is a Manager, but today I found out from Mohammad that he is not – he is actually working under Claire!

WHY cant Morrisons’ Staff be straight with me when I ring?

I aim to put all this in writing to…

Wm Morrison Supermarkets PLC, 
Chief Executive: Mr Dalton Philips,
Hilmore House,
BRADFORD,

Tel:  01274 261000,    0845 611 6111,
Email: dalton.philips@morrisonsplc.co.uk

ALSO Ring Your Local Branch and Tell Meat Dept. these two things…

All meat should show Meat Codes & to watch out for rogue packets of meat that are wrapped differently from usual -especially Meat Code No.6057

Find your Local Morrisons Branch Tel.No. by adding your postcode to their Store Finder here:

You may also want to complain to DEFRA about the overproduction of halal meat as I did today. Tel: 08459 335577

I spoke to Geoff Webdale who’s been responsible for Animal Welfare in England since 2007

I told him that some of my Members are Farmers, who have changed abattoirs, because they couldn’t bear to see their cattle literally climbing the walls with their heads half hanging off.

Geoff cold-heartedly said,
“Well that shouldn’t be happening – they should have been tethered to hold them still!”

That just about sums the situation up really –

Does anyone care enough in Britain to stop this outdated 7th Century barbarity in our 21st Century abattoirs?

I thought Morrisons cared… until today.

The Care Team Manager, Claire Thornton gave me the distinct impression that she is fed up with hearing from me (I last rang just before Easter).

I told her that not labelling any meat properly with Meat Codes was against the EU Regulations, but she said Morrisons would not have made that move without checking it thoroughly first.

I also reported that we know they are selling unlabelled halal lamb in some stores.  Claire said –

“We do not sell any halal meat, other than New Zealand Lamb, which is clearly labelled halal.”

I replied saying –
“No… what you are probably selling is the cheap cast off halal lamb, that has failed the halal inspection, by having a blemish… or maybe there was a spillage… so it is rejected and called haram; …but has still been faced to Mecca, dedicated to Allah & Ritually Slaughtered – probably without stunning – certainly without adequate stunning.
Claire made no comment.
I asked Claire to ring me back when she finds out about the need for proper labelling.
Claire refused to ring me back, but promised to send me an email within 4 working days.

 

When I rang back in the afternoon to tell them that Meat Codes on all Packaged Meat was not an option, Claire Thornton was unavailable to speak to me, but I was reminded that she would email me.

I have had a soft spot for Morrisons in the past, as they are the only supermarket that say they refuse to sell halal… but this is the umpteenth time I have found them out.
So I hope you will all remind Claire Thornton that we are all checking the Meat Codes at Morrisons in the hope that we find meat from one of their own traditional abattoirs, for example:

2092            Farmers Boy            Bradford,        West Yorkshire

I spent five hours in all on the phone and finished off at 4:30pm by ringing TRADING STANDARDS, as advised by my MP and by DEFRA and by the FSA.

TRADING STANDARDS Tel: 0845 40405 (where I ring most days to give an update on more products that I am finding that are Certified Halal, but not labelled as such.)

Today it was MORRISONS and NATURE VALLEY that I brought to the attention of TRADING STANDARDS.

I heard this morning on BBC News that Nature Valley – which has a tiny Halal Certification mark on the back… are now to be the Official Cereal Bars of the 2012 Olympics!

 

WHY is there no mention in the advertising that the bars are certified halal by the Halal Food Authority?

 

 

WHY CHOOSE A HALAL PRODUCT?   Oh Yes… I seem to remember this news item published in January 2010…

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

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

 

QUOTE from a Muslim Website:

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.

Would Muslim certification bodies be justified denying certification to these companies?

 

Uphold British Traditions and Judeo-Christian Values!

IMPORTANT: Qur’an says Muslims are allowed to eat non-halal food!

 

IMPORTANT: If there is no halal available then a Muslim is allowed to eat non-halal food.

Islam has laws regarding which foods can and cannot be eaten and also on the proper method of slaughtering an animal for consumption, known as dhabihah.
However if there is no other food available then a Muslim is allowed to eat non-halal food.

Surah 2:173 states:
If one is forced because there is no other choice, neither craving nor transgressing, there is no sin on him.

Teach Yourself Islam by Ruqaiyyah Maqsood2

SOURCE: World faiths: Teach yourself Islam by Ruqaiyyah Maqsood.
ISBN 0-340-60901-X. Page 204
Surah 2:173 states:
If one is forced because there is no other choice, neither craving nor transgressing, there is no sin in him.
So it seems that when muslims are in non-Islamic countries it’s OK for them to eat non-halal food… the only requirement according to Sharia Law is to pray before when consuming non-halal foods. There is absolutely no need for halal meat in Non-Islamic countries like ours.

ALSO…

Surah 5:5 states:

“This day are things good and pure made lawful to you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them.”
http://corpus.quran.com/wordbyword.jsp?chapter=5&verse=5

 
SO… WHY THE NEED FOR HALAL MEAT IN NON-ISLAMIC COUNTRIES?
I wonder why Muslims are demanding halal meat slaughtered in the Muslim way.
We have been told by Halal Authorities that Ritual Slaughter is a requirement of their religion.
But it seems this is clearly taqiyya they have been lying to us (again) in order to promote Islam.

ACCORDING TO SURAH 5:5 THE MEAT OF ANIMALS SLAUGHTERED BY CHRISTIANS OR JEWS IS ALREADY HALAL. 

 

You can find this point made at pages 74-5 of:

Book: Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Sharia Law

http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Day-Trojan-Horse-Immigration/dp/0979492955

The book is co-authored by Sam Solomon, a sharia jurist who left Islam.
It states:
“meat slaughtered by Jews and Christians is lawful for a Muslim”

The book makes use of the following translation (See First & Second & Third Comment)

Surah 5:5
“Made lawful to you this day are At Tayyibaat [all kinds of Halaal (lawful) foods, which Allaah has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits)]. The food (slaughtered cattle, eatable animals) of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them. (Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before your time when you have given their due Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), desiring chastity (i.e. taking them in legal wedlock) not committing illegal sexual intercourse, nor taking them as girlfriends”. (See Second & Third Comment)
http://islamqa.com/en/ref/21380

Here is another translation
[5.5] This day (all) the good things are allowed to you; and the food of those who have been given the Book is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them; and the chaste from among the believing women and the chaste from among those who have been given the Book before you (are lawful for you); when you have given them their dowries, taking (them) in marriage, not fornicating nor taking them for paramours in secret; and whoever denies faith, his work indeed is of no account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers. (Also see First & Next Comment)

So why this insistence on slaughtering animals in the hellish Muslim way?

And why are western governments allowing this totally unnecessary cruel slaughter to continue?

Everyone Should Watch This Video!

There are no images of Halal Slaughter the HORROR is the covert way that Halal is taking over our Food Chain in our country.

 

Halal meat is becoming an intrinsic part of your national diet whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not.

Islam WILL be controlling our Western political and social systems if we allow halal meat to continue.

We Must Protest!

It is completely unacceptable to use outdated 7th Century halal Ritual Slaughter methods in the 21st Century.

Let us write to those in power in Non-Islamic Countries and insist that we uphold our own traditions, norms and values.

Do it now!

Point out that this halal demand is a recent event.

The halal industry appears to have put all the emphasis on the idea that ‘halal’ is the issue, when the issue is actually whatever is haram should be rejected.

There is no mandate in the Qur’an to issue certificates as proof that something is halal.

Halal Certificates are a new invention – they are Bidd’ah – worse than sins!

The Qur’an clearly says that certain foods, such as pork and alcohol, are haram and must be avoided.

Anything that a Muslim considers is uncertain – mushboo – should be rejected too.

The halal industry are now involved in a HUGE Money Making Racket, as these self-appointed halal authorities endorse products and services as being halal.

Different Islamic factions have differing ideas about what is halal.

These Halal Authorities are charging huge amounts of money to companies for their Halal Certificates – this is extortion – and completely unnecessary.

There is no agreed Global Halal Standard – there is no agreed ‘authentic’ halal.

In conclusion, the demand for ‘halal’ in Non-islamic countries is a recent phenomena.

Muslims were never asked to appoint Halal Authorities to tell them what ‘halal’ is

Individuals are just required to reject what they think is ‘haram’ – and then pray over what they eat.

The Qur’an says this is a matter of personal judgement and each person should decide for themselves to reject the ‘haram’.

Muslims are actually required to know what is ‘haram’, not halal.

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

HMC LIQUIDATION

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…
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. It is important for all our partners to support us on our journey to ensure the provision of genuine Halal.”

ILLEGAL BUSINESS PRACTICE! HMC LIQUIDATION (UK)

UK: Halal Monitoring Committee Limited goes into liquidation, but is trading as HMC (UK) as it continues its work to supply Genuine Halal
The HMC – a so-called ‘respectable’ Halal Certification Board…
On the background of the story that many muslim businesses are illegally claiming CHARITY STATUS to get out of paying TAX &  VAT,  we have already seen two more halal abattoirs close in Wales this month…
Now the HMC is trying to wriggle out of paying its debts by going into Liquidation & opening for business in a new name HMC (UK) Ltd.!
QUOTE:  Halal Monitoring Committee Limited is in the process of being dissolved allowing them to be debt free and to continue their work they have set up as HMC (UK)!
NB.  SEE COMMENTS BELOW THIS ARTICLE This disreputable move has angered many people!

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.

Point de Bascule: Halal slaughter, Hamas monetary gain

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.”


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