That means Allah's (God's) name must be pronounced during slaughter, the instrument used must be very sharp to ensure humane slaughter (the animal must be slit at the throat), the animal must not be unconscious, and it must be hung upside down and allowed to bleed dry.

Okay...that's a bit over the top there. Try the salad.

Arshad said that more than 50 restaurants served halal meat in Hong Kong. The meat is checked as being halal-certified in the country from which it is imported by Arshad and his staff.

Waaa!  McDonald's won't pay me millions to serve the meat I import!

It's only halal if the butcher suicide bombs the cow while it is riding the bus to school or work

After you're finished your gay-free meal subsidizing idiocy by eating at Papa Johns and Chik-fil-A, then you can rush over to McDonalds, KFC and Pizza Hut and get some Sharia-free grub too not subsidize that kind of idiocy because the article doesn't mean what subby thinks it means.
 
2013-09-22 07:20:39 AM
Wait, when was Papa Johns being homophobic? I remember there being a huge stink about the CEO coming out against Obamacare but nothing related to gay marriage. Is Subby confused or referring to something I missed?

I always knew it was nutrition free, so I guess the sharia free is a bonus of sorts

This. A sharp knife to cut the throat isn't humane if the animal's aware it is dying. Let Chigurh handle the captive bolt pistol; it doesn't destroy the part of the brain that keeps the heart pumping.

In Hong Kong. I guarantee the Middle Eastern versions of these restaurants are halal. (Or at least as halal as the American versions' meat is meat.)

Nooooooope nope nope nope! I'm done hearing about companies and their owners/CEOs/some mission statement on crap that doesn't even remotely realte to their field. Don't care! Nope!

"The government has been trying to promote Islamic investment here, so the move would be beneficial to tourism in Hong Kong and our financial market," Tse said. "It's also a chance to attract tourists from Muslim countries to Hong Kong. We're showing that we are catering for them."

If the lack of Halal junk food is turning them off of investing or holidaying there, fark em.

Pretty much.

It's about the market. If you open in Israel, I imagine you might consider serving kosher product if you want to sell.

If a huge portion of your customers want halal product - you sell them what they want to buy.

Love the Hebrew Nantional too. Best make at home dog. Nieman ranch isn't bad either. But really pricey.

I do believe i remember some imam saying a while back that Kosher meat is acceptable as a substitute when Halal is unavailable, but i can't find the source of this. Anyone else remembers this?
 
2013-09-22 07:42:56 AM
This is must bequite the conundrum for some.
At least it bodes well for the area's pro-gay halal mom and pop diners and the butchers who supply them.

i think Kosher does what halal does and adds some things. so it's like double approved by god.

Ensuring humane slaughter is the real obstacle, more than not wanting to pander to Muslims, I'd bet.

I remember a while back when a muslim owned and operated a mcdonalds here in Florida, six month later he closed down. What this village idiot fails to realize is unless you are in an entire muslim community, its not a wise decision to go against the demographic and just serve what you feel people should eat. On a funny note, a homeless guy found a stash of money and returned it to the owner a few years back, the owner of the money offered him a trailer for free (and free rent for a year) to help him get back on his feet, the man also got $25,000 to start his own business so he went out and bought a falling down car wash and turned it into a restaurant that sells just chicken and waffles.

At noon don't think you will get in and out, there's a line backed up waiting for food the business is going that strong.

/oh and Hong Kong does not have an overwhelming muslim population, so good luck trying to get those restaurants to change their business practice about demographics.

He doesn't import the meat, he checks the halal certification as mufti, in much the same way that kosher certifications are overseen by rabbies.

Halal meat would probably be too expensive for the market. I mean, they could probably make it work, but why bother if the profit margin isn't extreme?

Goddammit, now I'm hungry for Chik-fil-A and it's farking Sunday. Liquor stores don't open until 11:00, no  Chik-fil-A. Farking Sabbath.

Same here. Not to mention the fact that half the animal goes to waste. Halal and Kosher have always seemed very wasteful to me.

Unless the neighborhood is overwhelmly Islamic or Jewish halal/kosher sounds like to much trouble to bother. Plus we couldn't serve cheeseburgers or breakfast.
