In its November 30, 2012 issue, Urdu daily Rojnama Rashtriya Samachar reported that Poland has banner the killing of animals the Islamic way. The report said that a Polisg court had ruled that bleeding animals while they are still conscious with the intention to kill them is against Polish laws. Poland is the second country to ban Halal meat. Previously, Sweden had done so.
In Poland, before slaughtering, animals are made unconscious with electric shocks. Islamic tradition however, does not allow animals to be made unconscious before killing them.
