Make sure there is no water dripping from the meat, warns authorities

  • The slaughter process of cows in some parts of Karachi goes beyond tying their legs and slitting their throats.

    In Orangi, New Karachi, before the cow is skinned and cut into pieces to be sold to retailers, a water pipe is expertly fixed to one of the veins in the carcass. An electric motor pumps water into the meat, which swells and thus becomes ‘prettier’.

    “This is what we have come to call pressure meat,” said Syed Shujaat Hussain, the New Karachi assistant commissioner. “The practice is so common that we don’t even know how much of such meat is actually sold in the market.”

  • Is this meat better then " Halal Gadha"?
