AIA is pleased that stunning is now considered to be acceptable for Halal meat by some butchers and religious leaders in Turkey and that the suffering of some animals will therefore be reduced. We are very grateful to the animal rights campaigners in Turkey who demonstrated that stunning is acceptable in Islamic law and we hope that many others will follow their example.

AIA believes in a peaceful, vegan world where we respect all animals and treat them with love and compassion. We honour the Creation by treating all its creatures with love and kindness. However, we acknowledge and are very grateful for the work being done here to reduce the suffering of animals.
