WE have laws against cruelty to animals killed for food.

All such livestock must be stunned prior to slaughter.

How then can it be that some people are allowed to kill without stunning?

Did we make another law just to enable these people to satisfy their so called religious beliefs.

I find it hard to believe that any god would wish his creations to die in such a cruel manner and am puzzled at how it can be allowed in the first place.

It seems to be just to appease certain sections of our population who are largely foreign.

I am sure I am not alone in believing that when you go to a different country you should adopt the laws of that land.
