ITALIAN appeals court overturns ruling that fined two Muslims for inhumanely slaughtering fully-conscous goat
Two Muslim savages, fined €4,600 for barbarically halal-slaughtering a fully conscious goat in the street, have had an animal cruelty conviction overturned by a leftist court in Italy on
faith religious death cult grounds.
The Local (h/t Maria J) The pair, Romanian Muslim travelers living in a camp in Val Bisagno, Genoa, were reported to the police in 2014 after publicly slaughtering a young goat by cutting its throat and then hanging it upside down, while it was still conscious, La Stampa reported.
The animal was killed during the Islamic celebration of Eid al-Adha, an annual celebration during which an animal is sacrificed to commemorate the prophet Abraham, who according to scripture was asked to murder his own son, Isaac, at God’s command. But when he was about to do so, an angel appeared and told him to stop. (Something Muslims never do when it comes to cutting throats, animal or human)
The religious act was reported to police by a local animal rights association, which described the public scene as ‘bloodcurdling’ as the unstunned animal was forced to go through the ordeal while conscious. The two men were then convicted of animal cruelty and fined €4,600.
But their sentence was overturned by an appeals court in Genoa last week as the act was carried out as part of a religious festival. In overturning the conviction, judge Mauro Amisano wrote that animal cruelty charges “presume the lack of any valid motive which renders the cruelty abject and futile.”
Amisano added that the sacrifice had a valid motive as it was part of a religious festival and had been carried out according to longstanding barbaric tradition. “As part of a religious practice which always causes animals undue suffering, one can assume the men did not expose the animal to any additional suffering,” he added.
“It cannot be considered illegal because it is a practice which is permitted by the freedom of religious expression” (regardless of how cruel and inhumane it is).
