In the aforementioned scenario the Islamic viewpoint is and has always been that it is not permissible to stun an animal, as it is a cause of greater grief and pain for the animal and against the animal right's principles of Islam. Furthermore, if the animal were to die as a result of stunning then its consumption for a Muslim will also be haram (impermissible). Statistically speaking, it is highly unlikely for the animal to escape death , particularly the smaller species.

Thus, as a leading Islamic institute in Britain we support this cause of exemption for stunning headed be UK Halal Corporation on behalf of Muslims in Britain and hope it would be resolved in the preferred manner.
