See how easy it is to play that "my God is better than your God" game? The real question is....how do you know? Since you don't, why do you take it upon yourself to judge another Man's beliefs? Is that what Jesus would do?
There are long-standing provisions in our law which, subject to specific requirements, permit the slaughter of animals without stunning to meet Jewish and Muslim religious requirements. Whilst the Government would prefer that all animals were stunned before slaughter, it recognises the needs of certain communities and accepts the importance which they attach to the right to slaughter animals for food in accordance with their beliefs. Religious slaughter must be carried out only in approved red meat slaughterhouses or, in the case of poultry, in approved or other officially regulated slaughterhouses (see guidance about religious slaughter for the Muslim community). We attend regular meetings with representatives of the Muslim community to address any areas of ongoing concern. These meetings are chaired by the Food Standards Agency. We also hold occasional meetings with Jewish organisations.
7 U.S.C.A. § 1902. Humane methods
No method of slaughtering or handling in connection with slaughtering shall be deemed to comply with the public policy of the United States unless it is humane. Either of the following two methods of slaughtering and handling are hereby found to be humane:
(a) in the case of cattle, calves, horses, mules, sheep, swine, and other livestock, all animals are rendered insensible to pain by a single blow or gunshot or an electrical, chemical or other means that is rapid and effective, before being shackled, hoisted, thrown, cast, or cut; or
(b) by slaughtering in accordance with the ritual requirements of the Jewish faith or any other religious faith that prescribes a method of slaughter whereby the animal suffers loss of consciousness by anemia of the brain caused by the simultaneous and instantaneous severance of the carotid arteries with a sharp instrument and handling in connection with such slaughtering.

Well he has a point - there have been recent instances where Halal meat is not clearly labelled.
As to the regulations - I admit I stand corrected - despite the fact the same site states UK meat slaughter should be carried out humanely - religious exemptions do exist.
To be honest - this is just another example of exceptions made for other religions - not just Islam but Jewish as well - that contravene the legal standing that affects the rest of the population.
There also can be no denying it is a barbaric process that along with things like stoning - belong in centuries gone by.
Animals should be treated as humanely as possible, stunned and slaughtered - not allowed to bleed to death in agonising pain in the name of "religion"

Just stopping the massive immigration and ensuring laws of the country are actually followed and enforced even in already existing isolationist muslim ghettos, in reality, not just on paper, would be enough. No apartheid, racist laws or discrimination is needed, noone is asking for that, you are making a strawman.
Stopping the huge immigration is all what people want.
2. Slaughter in the form of ritual cut
After the bloodletting cut loss of reaction (loss of consciousness) occurred with high probability within 10 seconds. A clear reaction to the cut could not be detected in any animal. For 7 animals a zero EEG was recorded no later than after 23 seconds. Cramps occurred in the animals regularly only after the brain currents had stopped.
After the bloodletting cut loss of reaction (loss of consciousness) occurred after 10 seconds the latest. A clear reaction to the cut could not be detected in any animal. The zero line was recorded no later than 14 seconds after the cut. Cramps only occurred after the zero line had been detected and were much shorter than after captive bolt stunning.
The slaughter in the form of ritual cut is, if carried out properly, painless in sheep and calves according to the EEG recordings and the missing defensive actions.
