Dutch Jews and Muslims join forces

13th September 2011, Comments 0 comments

Dutch Jews and Muslims have joined forces in their fight against a bill banning ritual slaughter.

The Lower House of parliament has already approved the bill, which will be debated in the Senate on Tuesday.

The initiative for the Jewish-Muslim platform was taken by Ibrahim Wijbinga, chair of the umbrella organisation of Islamic undertakers, and Rabbi Lody van der Kamp.

The Jewish-Islamic platform wants to defend shared religious values and promote dialogue between Judaism and Islam.
