Also people that moan about Halal meat but ignore other meats slaughtered in similar ways that also annoys me
Apparently, between 84 & 90% of halal meat in the UK, IS slaughtered the same way, as non-halal meat. i.e.the animal is stunned first & supposedly isn't conscious when killed. This does, however, leave a significant minority of animals which are killed without being stunned first, at one of a reported 12 slaughterhouses in the UK which still perform the more traditional practice, endorsed by Islamic scholars, of keeping the animal conscious when its throat is cut.
Of course, if one is vegan or vegetarian, both ways are awful.
As a meat eater I have a right to dislike the methods used to produce 'true' halal meat. One way is clearly more humane, than the other.
Despite those figures above, there is clearly no way for anyone to know, which meat is halal or 'halal'.
It would be nice to be able to choose, which one prefers.
As regarding a restaurant not serving pork when it used to, why is a religion that I don't follow, dictating what is on a menu?
That is religious discrimination.
I can't have bacon in KFC, 'because god wouldn't like it'.
