Ron Gray draws our attention to the practice of preparing halal food – meat, in this case – by Muslim butchers. In and of itself, this practice is perfectly okay, but circumstances around the practice has recently led to a murder in Tanzania. Shariah law forbids any non-Muslim butcher from preparing meat, even if that meat is being prepared for only non-Muslims. Will Muslims in Tanzania – and maybe even Canada – be able to force this religious constraint into general law?
