    I ate at Nando's not so long ago. As I was leaving a saw a certificate on the wall saying that all of it's meat is Halal.

    I sure as hell won't be going back.

    Animals are prepared for halal products by having their throats slit while conscious.


    Nice :mad:

    Now to make meat halal or permissible, an animal or poultry has to be slaughtered in a ritual way known as Zibah. To make it readily comprehended halal is somewhat like Jewish kosher and, Zibah is with some exception similar to Shechita. The Qur`an gives following underlined injunctions in chapter al-Maida 5:3 that
    Zibah require animals to be alive and healthy at the time of slaughter, since carrion is forbidden and, jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe have to be severed by a razor sharp knife by a single swipe, to incur as less a pain as possible. Here the only difference is that a rabbi will read what is required by his faith and, a Muslim will recite tasmiya or shahada, which fulfils the requirement of dedication. The question of how to overcome the issue of recitation of shahada on individual bird whence we now have poultry being slaughtered at a rate of six to nine thousand per hour, has already been addressed. A Muslim is commanded to commence all his deeds in the name of Allah.

    Halal is a term for food which is classes as permissible for Islamic religion.

    The way that the animal is slaughtered is inhumane.

    Ok but not being funny, but animals are killed anyway to make food...as cruel & sad as it is...but we still eat it or we choose to anyhow...so what does it matter? Its still chicken and i love it

    Of course it matters. LOL (Did you really just say that?)

    If we decide to eat an animal is our duty to ensure that animal has lived the best life possible and has died without suffering unnecessarily.

    Anything to do with religion is a load of poppycock. These poor animals are slaughtered in such a way which should be illegal. And all to make the meat taste better. Selfish if you ask me.

    That is true I suppose.

    But sorry nothing is going to stop me enjoying Nando's.

    While i agree how these animals are slaughtered is cruel, i can't say its going to stop me eating Nando's.

    And another thing, how do we know these animals (not made by halal way) havent suffered anyway? We may as well all stop eating meat if that's the case. But that's my way of thinking.

    I wasn't thinking, nor did I say, that she couldn't say what she wanted.

    I was just a little set back that on a animal lovers forum, someone would come out with that.
