Ritual slaughter was banned last year under pressure from animal rights groups who argue that it entails unnecessary suffering to animals which are not stunned before death. The lawmakers are to vote this week on a government draft law setting strict conditions for ritual slaughter.(AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski)
