Denmark: Gov't announces kosher slaughter ban

The president of Denmark’s Jewish community disputed a government minister’s claims that new regulations would outlaw all kosher slaughter in the country. 
Danish Jews took issue with the minister’s statements this week, however, because he cited the need to observe animals’ welfare, thus suggesting shechitah is cruel. He also cited the rareness of kosher slaughter, or shechitah, in Denmark as justification for a ban.
“The ministry has not banned other rarely practiced customs, so is there a focus on minorities?” Schwarz asked.
