So will the Islamic Medical Association not be willing to advise that humans ought to be stunned before their beheading?

Abdul Majid Katme, of the Islamic Medical Association, said: “Prophets Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad — peace be upon them — all practised and advocated the divine direct method of animal slaughter.”

“The final Prophet Muhammad — peace be upon him — in one of his sayings (hadith) emphasised the maximum bleeding out in our direct dhabh [animal slaughter].

“Blood is absolutely forbidden to consume in any way in the Koran.” 

It is incumbent upon the Muslim comunity, to be unequivocal, especially at a time such as this, about what is right and wrong.

If Islamic individuals and organisations can pronounce on issues relating to Halal meat then even more so, should they on matters relating to the treatment of human beings.
