Imposing Animal Cruelty

Mosque leaders are slamming a politician for "imposing" animal welfare on Muslim children:

LANCASHIRE Council of Mosques chairman Salim Mulla has criticised former county leader Geoff Driver for imposing his animal welfare views on the Muslim community.

He spoke out after the Tory urged the giant authority to pre-stun all animals killed for meat in school meals. [...]

Coun Mulla, Mayor of Blackburn, said pre-stunned meat was not considered Halal by some Muslims.

He said: "This is Coun Driver's view on animal welfare and I respect that.

"However he should not impose that view on Muslim families whose children go to Lancashire county council schools."

But it's perfectly acceptable to impose animal cruelty on the non-Muslim majority.

(Hat Tip: TROP)
