Article 9 Human Rights Act. regarding Freedom of Conscience – should give us the right to religious and secular freedom,
i.e. to not be forced to participate in religious rites.
Dedicating this meat to a god violates this right: hence there is forced participation in another’s religion without consent.
Also Jews, Sikhs & Christians are specifically instructed not to eat this meat, so where is their religious freedom?
