Subway just through their loyal customers under the bus in favor of new Muslim customers! The Daily Mail broke the news after 185 UK and Ireland stores have stopped all ham and bacon, and all other meat will be prepared following halal guide lines.
Wonder what halal is, well halal is the Arabic word for “lawful” or “permitted”. It is a broad term covering what is allowed in the context of Islamic law but is often used in conjunction with the issue of how meat is dealt with. The opposite of halal is haram, meaning “forbidden”.
Traditional halal meat is killed by hand and must be blessed by the slaughterman. Islam has strict laws on the proper method of slaughtering an animal. One, called dhabihah, requires a swift, deep incision with a sharp knife on the neck that cuts the jugular vein. For meat to be considered halal the animal must be alive and healthy before it is killed, and all the blood must be drained from the body.
A Subway spokeswoman told MailOnline all halal meat served in the participating branches is from animals who were stunned prior to slaughter. She said: ‘The growing popularity of the Subway chain with the diverse multicultural population across the UK and Ireland means we have to balance the values of many religious communities with the overall aim of improving the health and welfare standards of animals.”
In the halal-only branches, ham and bacon has been substituted for turkey ham and rashers. Many animal charities condemn halal slaughter as being cruel to animals. Traditionally in halal abattoirs, the throats of the animals are cut while they are fully conscious – an act many campaigners say is inhumane and needlessly cruel.
SUBWAY SUBS AFFECTED BY RULES
Once again it seems that Muslim’s have no interest in assimilating into there new counties, as they continue their demands for us to change to their customs!
