The EDL have spent the last couple of years trying to raise the awareness of the creeping Islamisation of Britain through Islamic. One of the principal vehicles for Islamisation is the pushing of halal foods onto an unsuspecting and unknowing British populace. A furore arose when it was revealed that much meat was being passed to the general public without their knowledge or consent. In the wake of these revelations, many supermarkets began to label meat as halal or non-halal.
Many chain restaurants are also passing off halal meat to the general public without really advertising the fact. Nando’s, for example, serve only halal chicken in their restaurants. For a couple of years Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has been trial-marketing halal foods in selected outlets. They claim on their website that this has been due to a huge demand for halal food.
Given that only halal foods can be served at these outlets, we are seeing Islamic shariah laws being imposed on the British public without their consent, without consulting them, and without their being informed. To identify the KFC outlets that are involved in the trial is difficult. One has to discover a small insignificant label. If one is not aware that the shop is selling or trialling the sale of halal meat to the public, one would be hard-pressed to find out, without asking directly.
KFC’s behaviour raises a number of very important issues which are hard to ignore once you understand the full significance of what is being done. KFC claim the following:
‘For some time, we have received requests to provide halal food in parts of the UK and as a result of this, we are running a halal trial within communities where we anticipate a strong demand for halal products.’
One of those communities is mine – in Hounslow West. This area does indeed have a Muslim community, but it is relatively small compared to the Sikh and Hindu communities, not to mention the Christian population in the same area. This is also the case in many of these so-called ‘areas of high demand’ for halal products. The issues for other religious communities are:
1. Sikhs cannot eat halal meat.
2. Christians cannot eat meat dedicated to a pagan god (Allah is not Jehovah).
3. Observant Jews must eat kosher, and not halal.
4. Non-religious people who hold animal welfare important do not want to eat the meat of animals that have been slaughtered cruelly.
Despite the claim that KFC consider animal welfare important, the assertion that all the chickens are stunned before slaughter is simple misdirection. The type of stunning used is minimal, and does not leave the animal fully unconscious. The animal is still sentient and able to feel the pain of its impending death.
No Muslim scholar would accept meat as being halal if the animal were fully unconscious at the moment of death. So KFC’s claim to hold animal welfare in high regard is pure nonsense.
It is also important point to note is that there is no choice given to non-Muslims about what food will be provided them at these restaurants. If you are a non-Muslim, you can have halal meat and only halal meat. This is because halal meat cannot be prepared in the same food-preparation area as non-halal foods stuffs. KFC are not willing to provide more than one food preparation area in any given restaurant, so we must eat halal foods, and only halal foods.
In these trial outlets there is no choice for the non-Muslim to have, say, bacon in his food, as can be found in other KFC outlets that are not being trial-marketing halal foods. The population of Muslims is generally much smaller than the non-Muslim population, so we have to ask: Why are we being pushed to have halal-only restaurants when we, the majority, are not Muslim?
In my own community in Hounslow West, there are several KFC style chicken food outlets that are halal-only and are obviously aimed only at Muslims. So why does corporate KFC want to try to capture a relatively minor market share, at the expense of annoying the majority by pushing halal foods on it.
Our masters in parliament do not want halal meat served in the restaurants in the palace of Westminster, so why should we? No one is saying Muslims cannot have halal foods, but they are well-provided by restaurants that cater to them, and sell foodstuffs that are almost identical.
It is time we stood up and boycotted all KFC restaurants until this madness is stopped. Kentucky Fried Chicken owners must be made to realise that we live in a country that is not Muslim-dominated, that in fact it is largely non-Muslim, and that these people do not want halal foods.
