The fact that Halal butchers are immune from the law against slaughtering animals without pre stunning them, is blatantly wrong. It is unacceptable, that in a civilised society, innocent animals can be tortured to death in this way. Therefore, we the undersigned demand that the vulgar and cruel practise of Halal Slaughter be banned in the United Kingdom.

Letter to
Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs The Rt Hon Elizabeth Truss MP
The fact that Halal butchers are immune from the law against slaughtering animals without pre stunning them, is blatantly wrong. It is unacceptable, that in a civilised society, innocent animals can be tortured to death in this way. Therefore, we the undersigned demand that the vulgar and cruel practice of Halal Slaughter be banned in the United Kingdom. Also we know that halal meat is being sold in our shops without any indication that it is halal. This is also very wrong, as our consumer rights are being ignored.
