Bradford Council

Block planning for Meat Processing Plant next to Bradford sikh temple

    1. Petition by

      Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara, Bradford

Sikhs are strict vegetarians and killing living beings is against the beliefs of Sikhs. Should this go ahead, it would cause significant emotional distress to the large local Sikh community due to the animal carcasses being delivered and stored next door to a holy place of worship. The smell from the dead animals would be highly offensive and seriously impact the ability of Sikhs to worship at the temple.

 

On Tuesday 13 August 2013 Bradford Council approved the planning application by Pakeezah Supermarket to open a meat processing plant directly behind Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara (Sikh Temple), off Leeds Road, Bradford. This petition has now closed, but the battle goes on with a new petition with even greater community wide support. Please follow the below link and support us one more time:

      This application has been approved by a panel of pakistani judges who dont have no feelings for other faiths or religions. You type of people bring conflict to your doorsteps. What goes around comes around. You get abit of power in the council and you abuse it by approving applications like this. Its a disgrace, but i guess this is normal to you guys, as like i said you dont give a toss about other religions. if somebody threw abit of bacon at you then it would a big disgrace to your religion and such a big fuss would be made that it would of been advertised around the world in seconds. THINK ABOUT OTHERS YOU IMMATURE DILDO'S.....

      ENOUGH SAID....................

      Having a meat processing plant next to a religious building in which one of the core beliefs of that religion is not eating meat is insensitive and distressful.

      Sikhs are strict vegetarians. It is inconsiderate and down right disrespectful that the council is allowing a meat processing plant to be built next to a place of worship.

      Because being a sikh, it is considered inhumaine to kill another live being - putting such a factory next to our gurdwara is wholey inappropriate
