This is an idea for a letter to send to your MP or to a supermarket on the issue of halal meat:
Addresses for supermarket bosses may be found HERE, and MPs are HERE
Also see the supermarket addresses at the very bottom below!

If sending by post, put your address at the top.
Begin your letter:

Dear ,

I object to the practice of putting meat slaughtered with an Islamic declaration or 'Shahada' onto supermarket shelves with no label stating that it has been ritually-slaughtered.

I am aware that this meat is stunned before slaughter and satisfies current animal welfare regulations, so I do not, in your reply, need to be reassured on that point.

It is the Islamic declaration or 'Shahada' to which I take exception.  I do not wish unknowingly to eat meat which has been dedicated, whether stunned or not, to Allah.

Therefore I ask you to confirm that you will take steps either to remove all fresh and frozen halal meat from supermarket supply chains or to honestly and transparently label it as 'ritually slaughtered' or 'halal', whether stunned or not.

Yours sincerely,

Then sign and print your name
