Halal processed food taking over our supermarkets...

Recommended Posts

This is a personal belief of mine and not meant to cause offence, but if it does...well go read another thread!!!

I have been shopping at Tesco for a number of years here in Thailand, and over the past few months have noticed more and more products having the "Halal" logo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halal). When I say more and more products, what I mean is so F***ing many!!!!

Halal...foods that are permissible for Muslims to eat or drink under Islamic Shariʻah.

I am a meat lover and respect the humane way animals are slaughtered in the west (https://www.gov.uk/farm-animal-welfare-at-slaughter), and I am not sure how many of you know the way animals are slaughtered under the Halal process (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAQJ-FZo1cA) WARNING...THIS IS DISTRESSING TO WATCH...

My question, why is Tesco and other supermarkets selling the majority of their products under Halal? is Thailand a Muslim country now?!?!.....why am I being forced to buy foods, drinks etc that are processed in a way I do not agree with and is only relevant for Muslims?!!!

An extract which is disturbing..... According to Islamic law, sex is permissible and limited to between those who are married, between a man and his female wife and between a man and a female captive in wars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halal)

I dont expect you all to agree with my view, and I know some will be thinking just shop somewhere else... the trouble is most supermarkets are selling Halal products which makes it difficult to find products that are not Halal....

If you don't agree with it, shop elsewhere.

That is quite horrific that video btw.

But it's good to see some care about how the animal dies before they eat it.

Before I get stuck in about any meat dish. I think I can honestly say, I don't think I have ever questioned how it was killed.

Halal is one of the most humane processes in the killing of animals. One video shows nothing of the overall picture.

And which planet are you living on where this practice is humane ?

I'd be more worried about the Monsanto etc lobbying against food containing GM products being labelled as such.

Most products are halal by default, pretty much any plant based item.. so if you want to avoid halal you will need to stick to a pork based diet. The halal stamp is everywhere including junk foods.

Actually Muslims kill most of the food animals in Thailand because Buddhists won't do it. Therefore I suppose most animals are dispatched in a Halal or Semi-Halal fashion including pork.

Tesco exports huge amounts of food daily from Thailand to other countries and having a Halal sticker on it makes good biz. A sticker goes a looooong way!
