Halal Training

The Barnabas Fund report that “the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC), which is also the Australian halal authority and the country’s leading Muslim body, has called for the establishment of a halal training centre. It says that a new taxpayer-funded halal training centre – costing a “couple of million dollars” – would prepare refugees for jobs slaughtering animals in rural areas. If the proposal is accepted, the ongoing attempts by Muslim organisations to develop halal compliance in Australia would receive a major boost.”

Meanwhile the Dutch government has passed a bill banning the slaughter of livestock without stunning. For full story: http://www.barnabasfund.org/Campaign-updates/Export-crisis-prompts-calls-for-halal-training-centre-in-Australia.html
