County council to stop supplying non-stunned halal meat to schools

Jul 12th, 2018

Sorry, we're having problems with our video player at the moment, but are working to fix it as soon as we can Halal meat which has not been stunned prior to slaughter will no longer be supplied to Lancashire's schools by the county council. The decision was taken by the authority's cabinet - nine months after the proposal faced a legal challenge. The plan was put on hold after the Lancashire Council of Mosques (LCM) threatened action over the way in which a public consultation was carried out. The organisation's chief executive, Abdul Qureshi, described the latest move as "undemocratic and discriminatory". Leader of the Conservative-run authority, Coun Geoff Driver, told his cabinet before the unanimous vote: "We are not ordering schools not to provide meat from animals that weren't stunned before they were slaughtered. We are saying that we are not prepared for the county council to do that - which is perfectly within our rights." A fresh consultation earlier this year received more than 8,500 responses, two thirds of which "strongly disagreed" with the policy. 90 percent of respondents identifying themselves as Muslim were against the idea. The LCM supplied a template suggesting how residents could respond - and around 1,300 people are thought to have used that method. During a debate on the proposal at Thursday's cabinet meeting, Labour opposition leader, Azhar Ali, said: "The animal welfare issue, which is important to all of us, is being used as a tool to make a particular decision today." Referring to an ill-tempered debate at full council last October, County Coun Ali added: "Certain elements of our society revelled in that debate and the manner in which the discussions took place." But several cabinet members spoke in favour of the most recent proposal, which also has implications for Kosher food within the Jewish community. County Coun Keith Iddon, Member for Highways and Transport, told the meeting: "I'm from a farming community and the welfare [of animals] is of the utmost importance. The last thing I want to see is an animal slaughtered in that way [without being stunned]." Lancashire County Council had previously considered the issue back in 2013, sparking a boycott of some school meals by the LCM. A task group subsequently recommended maintaining an option for both stunned and unstunned halal meat. Responding to the latest decision, Adbul Qureshi accused County Coun Driver's focus on animal welfare of being too narrow. "He has a particular issue with the way an animal's life ends," Mr Qureshi said. "He is arguing about 15 seconds, but he's not arguing about the entire life of the animal." The LCM said it was considering its next steps, but has not ruled out the possibility of restarting the process of judicial review which it began last year. Speaking after the meeting, County Coun Driver said he would be talking to the LCM "to try to persuade them that it wouldn't be in anybody's interests to start boycotting school meals." Individual schools are free to source their own food from any supplier which meets the necessary standards. County Cllr Ali, also speaking after the vote, said: "That is why I was against the decision last year - the choice was always with the schools." Lancashire County Council currently supplies stunned and unstunned Halal meat to 27 schools, serving around 12,000 children. What is 'Halal'? 'Halal' is an Arabic word meaning "permissible". In relation to food, it refers to permitted meat which has been slaughtered in accordance with the principles of the Qur'an. That includes a requirement that animals must be alive at the point of slaughter; that only a Muslim man using an adequate knife can carry out the slaughter; and that no animal must witness or hear another being killed. But there is no single definition of what constitutes Halal. The Qur'ran does not expressly forbid stunning, but several different Halal accreditation agencies exist - each with differing interpretations.


For many Muslim grocery shoppers, a shifting definition of 'halal'

Jul 31st, 2018

For Muslims, halal food follows certain rules proscribed by Islamic law. It usually pertains to ritual slaughter and abstention from certain items like pork, blood and alcohol. But the interpretation of Islamic food traditions has often varied by time and place. In fact, food that was once prohibited, like caviar for Shiite Muslims, has since become accepted as halal. While conducting research for our book, "Halal Food: A History," we found that more and more Muslims are looking at ethical and health considerations while determining whether something is halal. Of course, ethical and healthy eating now occupies a significant niche within Western food culture, and many of these Muslims are based in North America and Europe. But increasingly - and like some Christians and Jews - they're pointing to religious texts to support their choices. Should 'halal' also mean healthy? The word "halal" means permissible. It refers to the actions, behaviors and foods that are allowed according to the traditional Muslim juristic interpretations of the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad's sayings and deeds. Many of these interpretations also define halal as "tayyib." They are inspired by Quranic verses such as 2:172, which instructs believers to "eat from tayyib (foods) which We have provided for you." According to religious traditions, tayyib is a word that can have a range of meanings, from tasty to fragrent to pleasant. In food matters, it is often translated as "wholesome" or "good." But for some Muslims today, tayyib carries a specific connotation: It refers to halal food that is nutritious, healthy, clean and ethically sourced. Regarding fruits and vegetables, it could indicate organic, pesticide-free or non-GMO. Read more: What are halal foods? The "tayyib-halal" ethos is also relevant for meat. Like many shoppers around the world, Muslims are taking into account the origins of the meat they're buying. Did it come from a factory farm? How were the animals treated? What were they fed? Were they given hormones and antibiotics? The market responds In the United States, Muslims can buy their halal meat from supermarkets or specialized grocers and butchers, depending on its availability and various definitions of halal. The halal meat sector in large part relies on industrially produced, non-free range meat. For this reason, some Muslims are calling for a tayyib-halal approach to meat sourcing - one that not only adheres to the details of ritual slaughter but also relies on animals that are healthy and haven't been mistreated, caged or abused. For example, Norwich Meadows in upstate New York objects to industrial farming practices. It's also one of the major suppliers to a boutique halal butcher in downtown Manhattan called Honest Chops, which sells organic, free-range, antibiotic-free halal meat to New York customers. At least one American food manufacturer has adapted to the evolving expectations of Muslim consumers. Saffron Road makes frozen foods that are low in fat and high in protein and fiber. It also uses hormone- and antibiotic-free beef and lamb, wild-caught fish and humanely raised chicken. And all of its packaging includes multiple labels proudly announcing that the food is halal and an explanation of the company's halal ethics on the back of the box. The concern for animal welfare has also influenced certification practices in the halal meat industry. In many Western countries, Muslim organizations - often for a fee - will inspect foods, production facilities and packaging techniques, before certifying products as halal-compliant. One of United States' major halal certifiers, the Chicago-based Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America, has developed a flexible certification system. On the one hand, there is meat that satisfies "basic criteria for halal slaughter." But it also has a separate certification for meat that was harvested in slaughterhouses compliant with animal welfare guidelines - and is therefore more consistent with a tayyib-halal ethos. For proponents of the tayyib-halal approach, the halal status of meat sourced from animals not treated humanely, in life or death, is suspect. An air of exclusivity? Then there are the small number of Muslim activists who support the principles of PETA and other animal rights movements. To them, tayyib means a vegan lifestyle. They argue that for a believing Muslim, the ultimate good and humane approach to animals means abstaining from subjugating, exploiting and killing them. Islamic teachings, these vegan Muslims maintain, show deep concern for animal well-being. Thus - the logic follows - the interpretation of animal welfare in Islam should be to avoid killing them. Some Muslims, however, are resisting the tayyib-halal ethos. They argue that meat was among the Prophet Muhammad's most preferred foods and the Quranic command to "eat from the good things" certainly encompasses animal protein. For others, the emphasis on environmentally friendly, ethically raised and expensively produced foodstuffs will make it more costly to purchase halal foods. They'll point out that the tayyib-halal approach is too complicated, burdensome and exclusive - and goes against the religion's core egalitarian teachings. It also adds too many demands on the generally well-understood and agreed upon halal legal principles, which - in the broadest interpretations - simply call for the abstention of a limited number of food items. To these Muslims, the simpler, more traditional approach to food is the better one. Whether or not to take into account the food's nutritional value and how it was grown or raised is a personal decision, not a religious question.

Prepare Halal Meat

Aug 2nd, 2018

#Purchase meat that is labeled "halal". Since halal meat has to be slaughtered in a specific way to follow Islamic law, certified halal butchers mark the meat with the word halal or a symbol that means halal. The symbol can be the Arabic word for halal, or the halal logo.http://www.ifanca.org/HFSK/Halal%20Kitchen%20In-Service%20Guide%20for%20Foodservice%20Operators.pdf

The Real-Life Walk of Shame that Inspired that 'Game of Thrones' Scene - "Jane Shore was one of King Edward IV's many mistresses. After his death in 1483 (and the suspicious death of his son, Edward V), Edward's brother ascended to the throne as King Richard III. Richard wasn't as charmed by Shore as his brother had been, and charged her and two others with conspiring against him.

Wall Street Journal columnist Jeff Yang claimed in a blog post that he when he first saw Avenue Q he thought it was a work of "satirical brilliance." But when revisiting the show in 2013, Yang claimed that he was disturbed by "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist."

Can it be the case that, because of certain racial or religious characteristics, one person's statement of facts is another person's demonstration of prejudice?... In Germany friends and readers describe to me how they are learning anew how to read their daily newspapers. When the news says that 'A person was killed by another person' for instance, and no names or other identifying characteristics are given, people guess - correctly - that the culprit is probably of migrant background. For the time-being serious crimes are still reported, but the decision has been taken that the public should not really be informed about them. Of course if you were to report them, or mull on them on social media then you would now risk losing that platform. So the media isn't much use. And social media isn't either." Britain's flawed definition of extremism is storing up trouble | Coffee House - "the allegation that saying that 'Allah is gay' is 'a threat to fundamental British values' is seriously stretching things... Ahmed Hassan was convicted at the Old Bailey of placing a bomb on a packed rush-hour train last September. The device left at Parsons Green, London, failed to detonate. But various interesting details emerged at his trial. One was confirmation that Hassan should never have been in the UK in the first place. He had travelled to Calais illegally and there spent time in the illegal 'Jungle' camp - that place whose occupants Lily Allen and Juliet Stevenson forever tell us we must take in if we are not to be deemed bigots... Instead of getting Hassan out of the country ASAP, the UK continued to do everything it could for him, including finding him a school place and placing him with a foster family to whom they forgot to mention the Isis stuff... The British state currently has to find a reason to explain why saying 'Allah is gay' is a fundamental assault on British values, but admitting to being a trained member of Isis is not. It has to explain why approaching the borders legally can lead to expulsion but breaking into the country illegally cannot. Of course what this is is the enforcement of what one might call 'Rowley-ism', after the Metropolitan Police's former assistant commissioner Mark Rowley. It was he who last month embedded the idea that the UK faces an equally balanced challenge: Islamist extremism on the one side, far-right extremism on the other. In order to sustain this equation it appears that for the time-being one must draw a moral equivalence between Muslims who blow things up and non-Muslims who do not, but have mean views. And an equivalence between Muslims who call for murder and non-Muslims who do not" 'Affirmative Consent' Will Make Rape Laws Worse - "this is what happens when you combine two principles designed to make it easier to prosecute sexual assault: affirmative consent and "enlarged definition of criminal sexual contact that would include the touching of any body part, clothed or unclothed, with sexual gratification in mind." The result is that "if Person B neither invites nor rebukes a sexual advance, then anything that happens afterward is illegal." Defenders of the thinking behind this proposal might say no prosecutor is going to bring such a silly case, but that's the opposite of comforting. Who would pass a law intended to be unenforced in almost every case? It's eerily totalitarian: a sort of blanket mandate convenient for targeting undesirables and threatening suspects... I'm struggling to know how a man (or a woman) could ever be fully sure that they were not breaking the law. Even affirmative consent can, after all, presumably be withdrawn at any time -- without a clear "no," under the prevailing thinking about affirmative consent. I'm reminded of a joke about a hypochondriac going to the doctor because he's worried about a silent heart attack, which is to say, a heart attack with no symptoms. The doctor runs a bunch of tests and says: "You're fine, sir. I did all the tests, and you haven't had a silent heart attack." The patient looks at him and says: "Yeah, but what about now? I still have no symptoms." If silence does not signal consent, does it signal consent has been revoked? You see the mess this approach creates... In the 1970s and 1980s, a lot of people were walking around this country with a constant background terror of being assaulted, and a lot of people decided that the way to solve that problem was to make a lot of men, mostly poor and black or Hispanic, feel in constant terror of the justice system, by expanding the laws on the books so that prosecutors and judges had a lot more power to put people in jail for long periods. The advocates thought that this form of terror was better, and more manageable, but in fact, it is worse, because it weakens the vital principles of equal justice and leaves the victims of the system with no recourse at all. You can call a cop to catch a criminal, but who do you call to protect you from the prosecutor? And from the legislators who handed the prosecutor such power?"

The growth of halal food across these countries is mainly attributed to rapidly increasing meat products consuming population. To cite an example, in 2011, in Russia, 65,000 tons of halal meat was produced. Increasing efforts by organizations to raise awareness with respect to the market growth of halal industry through events and trade fairs is also expected to contribute towards market growth of halal foods in the near future. Establishment of halal food standard in china will further propel the halal food market across the Asia pacific region over the forecast period. The global halal food market is impacted due to low purchasing power of Muslim population, especially those belonging to countries including, Sub-Saharan countries and Asia countries such as Indonesia, India, and Pakistan. The market for halal food is also impacted due to unavailability of any specific halal standards and the lack of unified regulation across the MEA.

For many Muslim grocery shoppers, a shifting definition of 'halal' | WTOP

Jul 31st, 2018

(The Conversation is an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts.) Febe Armanios, Middlebury College and Boğaç Ergene, University of Vermont (THE CONVERSATION) For Muslims, halal food follows certain rules proscribed by Islamic law. It usually pertains to ritual slaughter and abstention from certain items like pork, blood and alcohol. But the interpretation of Islamic food traditions has often varied by time and place. In fact, food that was once prohibited, like caviar for Shiite Muslims, has since become accepted as halal. While conducting research for our book, "Halal Food: A History," we found that more and more Muslims are looking at ethical and health considerations while determining whether something is halal. Of course, ethical and healthy eating now occupies a significant niche within Western food culture, and many of these Muslims are based in North America and Europe. But increasingly - and like some Christians and Jews - they're pointing to religious texts to support their choices. Should 'halal' also mean healthy? The word "halal" means permissible. It refers to the actions, behaviors and foods that are allowed according to the traditional Muslim juristic interpretations of the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad's sayings and deeds. Many of these interpretations also define halal as "tayyib." They are inspired by Quranic verses such as 2:172, which instructs believers to "eat from tayyib (foods) which We have provided for you." According to religious traditions, tayyib is a word that can have a range of meanings, from tasty to fragrent to pleasant. In food matters, it is often translated as "wholesome" or "good." But for some Muslims today, tayyib carries a specific connotation: It refers to halal food that is nutritious, healthy, clean and ethically sourced. Regarding fruits and vegetables, it could indicate organic, pesticide-free or non-GMO. The "tayyib-halal" ethos is also relevant for meat. Like many shoppers around the world, Muslims are taking into account the origins of the meat they're buying. Did it come from a factory farm? How were the animals treated? What were they fed? Were they given hormones and antibiotics? The market responds In the United States, Muslims can buy their halal meat from supermarkets or specialized grocers and butchers, depending on its availability and various definitions of halal. The halal meat sector in large part relies on industrially produced, non-free range meat. For this reason, some Muslims are calling for a tayyib-halal approach to meat sourcing - one that not only adheres to the details of ritual slaughter but also relies on animals that are healthy and haven't been mistreated, caged or abused. For example, Norwich Meadows in upstate New York objects to industrial farming practices. It's also one of the major suppliers to a boutique halal butcher in downtown Manhattan called Honest Chops, which sells organic, free-range, antibiotic-free halal meat to New York customers. At least one American food manufacturer has adapted to the evolving expectations of Muslim consumers. Saffron Road makes frozen foods that are low in fat and high in protein and fiber. It also uses hormone- and antibiotic-free beef and lamb, wild-caught fish and humanely raised chicken. And all of its packaging includes multiple labels proudly announcing that the food is halal and an explanation of the company's halal ethics on the back of the box. The concern for animal welfare has also influenced certification practices in the halal meat industry. In many Western countries, Muslim organizations - often for a fee - will inspect foods, production facilities and packaging techniques, before certifying products as halal-compliant. One of United States' major halal certifiers, the Chicago-based Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America, has developed a flexible certification system. On the one hand, there is meat that satisfies "basic criteria for halal slaughter." But it also has a separate certification for meat that was harvested in slaughterhouses compliant with animal welfare guidelines - and is therefore more consistent with a tayyib-halal ethos. For proponents of the tayyib-halal approach, the halal status of meat sourced from animals not treated humanely, in life or death, is suspect. An air of exclusivity? Then there are the small number of Muslim activists who support the principles of PETA and other animal rights movements. To them, tayyib means a vegan lifestyle. They argue that for a believing Muslim, the ultimate good and humane approach to animals means abstaining from subjugating, exploiting and killing them. Islamic teachings, these vegan Muslims maintain, show deep concern for animal well-being. Thus - the logic follows - the interpretation of animal welfare in Islam should be to avoid killing them. Some Muslims, however, are resisting the tayyib-halal ethos. They argue that meat was among the Prophet Muhammad's most preferred foods and the Quranic command to "eat from the good things" certainly encompasses animal protein. For others, the emphasis on environmentally friendly, ethically raised and expensively produced foodstuffs will make it more costly to purchase halal foods. They'll point out that the tayyib-halal approach is too complicated, burdensome and exclusive - and goes against the religion's core egalitarian teachings. It also adds too many demands on the generally well-understood and agreed upon halal legal principles, which - in the broadest interpretations - simply call for the abstention of a limited number of food items. To these Muslims, the simpler, more traditional approach to food is the better one. Whether or not to take into account the food's nutritional value and how it was grown or raised is a personal decision, not a religious question.
