Some time ago I read an article on Grist that caught my eye because it mentioned the words halal and slaughterhouse. I read on to know what they would get into in article and what sort of bias it would have, if any. Much to my surprise, it was quite informative and let Imran Uddin, owner of Madani Halal slaughterhouse, do the talking and explaining about how meat is processed to adhere to halal standards.
I particularly liked the video within the article showcasing Madani Halal in Queens, New York because it reminded me of my first few years eating halal meat–and my first real encounters with halal butchers of live poultry. It’s a totally different experience from shopping for meats at a run-of-the-mill grocery store, and those who own and run these types of places and serve top quality halal meats are providing a huge service to the communities in which they reside.
