Dutch Jews and Muslims join forces
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.
