The controversy over a customer cancelling an order on Zomato because of the delivery person’s religion has sparked a debate about the ‘halal’ and ‘jhatka’ methods of slaughter online. Zomato faced criticism from some users regarding why they used halal, Jain and kosher tags for some restaurants despite claiming ‘food has no religion’.  The company decided to clear the air saying it’s a classification added by the restaurant and not the aggregator. As the debate escalated, many on social media wondered what the difference was between ‘halal’ and ‘jhatka’ meat.

During the row, which had people divided over lauding the company and threatening to uninstall the app, one Twitter user asked what the difference between the two was:

In halal and kosher ways of killing an animal for food consumption, a small prayer is supposed to be said before the killing of the animal.

In the halal form of slaughter, animals are killed with a cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe. The animal is left till the blood drains out completely. In the jhatka method, the animal is killed instantaneously, such as by a single stroke of a sword or axe to sever the head.

While this serious explanation might be a little hard to comprehend for some, people found hilarious examples to explain the difference between both forms of slaughter. Listing various examples, Indian Twitterati concluded that in both forms of slaughter, death is the final outcome – just that one is instant, while other seems prolonged.

Sample these:

Meanwhile, the person who triggered the row on the Zomato delivery person has vanished from Twitter. The Jabalpur Police has decided to serve a notice under Section 106/117 of CrPC, a provision that will require him to sign a bond to keep the peace.
