Flemish Minister Calls for Ritual Slaughter Ban in Belgium

FSWC Reports:

From ynetnews.com:

The European Jewish Association (EJA) has voiced its concern over plans to implement a total ban on the practice of Jewish ritual slaughter in Belgium, insisting the move is a violation of freedom of religion. 

Rabbi Menachem Margolin, the EJA's general director, spoke out Monday after Flemish Minister for Animal Welfare Ben Weyts told Belgian television he would actively pursue a total ban on the practice of animal slaughter without pre-stunning. If successful, the move could be implemented by 2015.
