Protest about UNLABELLED Halal like this gentleman did when he found out that they were serving it up at his local school (this is happening at many schools now, since Janan Meats (MD of Janan is Navid Syed - also on the Halal Steering Committee set up by EBLEX) won the contracts for supplying hospitals, prisons & schools with halal meat!!!
Re: Halal only meat served at a public north London primary school
We are requesting your much required help
It has come to our knowledge that the school which our 3 young children attend have been serving halal meat as part of their school meals without the knowledge of parents. We recently were given a form requesting if our children would like to have Christmas dinner. We opted for the traditional Christmas dinner and when we submitted this form to the school office, we by chance mentioned halal, and we were told that Christmas dinner – turkey will be halal. We explained that we are SIKHS and so halal consumption is FORBIDDEN, to which the response was that our children would have to have the vegetarian alternative. Therefore we have started a petition. The petition simply requests that SCHOOLS MUST GIVE ADVANCE NOTICE OF THEIR SCHOOL MEALS POLICY AND THAT IF HALAL MEAT IS PROVIDED, SO SHOULD NON HALAL MEAT. This is not only because Sikhs are forbidden to eat halal on religious grounds but many non-Sikhs do not wish their children to consume halal meat.Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/islam/21309-why-not-halal-meat.htmlReference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=21309
Please sign our petition
We will inform all Sikh Gurdwaras in the UK and also world wide.
