Big fuss going around on having halal meat labelled because a lot people don't want to eat it. One of the restaurants that uses Halal meat without labelling is Pizza Express. The irony is that it's not even halal. Stunning prior to slaughter (which is how most of the animals are killed for halal purposes) is prohibited and not allowed by majority of the scholars.
However, I do think that halal meat should be labelled for those who don't want to eat it, but I have a few issues with this whole debate that is going on. Why is halal meat only being targeted, why not Kosher (which is exactly the same method). In addition, only vegan and vegetarians have the right to complain here since killing animals for meat is cruel whether you slaughter it or stun the meat. And what evidence is there that stunning is less cruel.
This is all just a ploy by these multinationals to cut their costs since halal is apparently cheaper.
