    There was no halal or kosher slaughtering, according to your definition, in Denmark in the past 20 years.  

    The new law just codified exisiting practice.  The religious communities here moved on years ago.

    Khalil Jaffar, an imam at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Copenhagen, told Al Jazeera on Tuesday that Danish Islamic leaders had issued a religious decree several years ago saying that animals stunned before slaughter were considered halal in Denmark

    Vahr appeared to back this up, also telling Ynet: "I have noticed that the President of the Jewish Community is quoted ... as saying that kosher slaughter is still legal in Denmark.

    "That is correct: the new regulation will not ban the slaughter of animals after stunning with non-penetrative captive bolt pistols. For the Jewish community in Denmark the new regulation will not introduce any change compared to present practices."
