Muslim slaughter

Muslim slaughter

Muhammadan ritual in which animals are slaughtered while conscious. Has much in common with the jewish slaughter method. The objective is to obtain an instant painless death, after food and water have been provided, and the slaughter does not take place in the sight of other animals. Death is achieved by drawing a very sharp knife across the throat and cutting both carotid arteries and both jugular veins with one stroke. Called also the Halal or Al-Dhabh method. See also slaughter.
