‘Don’t let the Muslims force their barbaric ways on us’ – advises anti-Halal leaflet in Harrow.
This is a leaflet that has been distributed by an unnamed group outside a school in Harrow, protesting against the decision to serve Islamic-approved Halal meat ONLY in schools.
“Did you know that your school is going to supply Muslim Halal meat for school dinners not just for Muslims but for all children. You don’t know this because your Head Teacher Katrina Mildner the Chair of Governors Ted Sturdy and Harrow Council chose not to tell you because you are of no importance. They are putting the Muslims beliefs before yours, the reason is they have no respect for you or your children or your beliefs.
English meat is slaughtered humanely so the animal doesn’t not suffer unlike the Halal method. The Bird or Animal has verses read from the Karan as part of the preparation before they slit it’s throat and let it bleed to death. This can take up to 370 seconds for a Calf to die. All the blood then has to be drained out. It is cruel and inhumane by our Western standards. Don’t let the Muslims force their barbaric ways on us, let’s stick to our principles and our way of life or we will lose them forever. This is our England.
You can tell the school you don’t want your child eating Halal. You can complain to the council. Or you can get other mothers and fathers to sign a petition and send this in.” LINK
The controversial technique involves unstunned animals bleeding to death after having their throats cut. Campaigners say the method is barbaric and should be banned.
But all high schools in the London borough of Harrow have been told to provide only halal meat on menus. Already two of the borough’s 52 primary schools have chosen halal-only menus. There are fears the other 50 will follow this autumn.
The ruling has sparked huge protests among parents who say they were not consulted. Angry opponents say it is blatantly pandering to Muslims by trampling over the feelings of other faiths. Daily Star
