The ques­tion of Ha­lal foods

The Church of England - - Letters - John M Hart­ley, Chip­pen­ham

Sir, It is not ac­cept­able for uniden­ti­fied ha­lal prod­ucts to be sold in shops and restaurants as ap­par­ently con­doned by the Bish­ops of Liver­pool and of West York­shire in the ar­ti­cle ‘Ha­lal meat de­fended’, (16 May).

We need to recog­nise the fact that Is­lam seeks to con­trol the lives, not just of Mus­lims, but also of the rest of us whom the Ko­ran dis­parag­ingly refers to as ‘in­fi­dels’. It is Is­lamic Sharia law that states that all should ob­serve Ha­lal prin­ci­ples and Chris­tians should not be pre­pared to al­low Is­lam to put this par­tic­u­lar ‘tick in the box’ in its re­lent­less pur­suit of global Is­lami­sa­tion.
