Say It Like You Eat It: Nasim

“We kill a chicken for consuming, so we have to pray to make it halal – to all mighty God. We are killing this chicken for eating, not murdering it – so, we kill, and then we eat. To kill people, innocent people, oh my God, our God never says this. We are not responsible for killing anybody. This is the practice of being a Muslim: give the message, the good message, but always be humble, and not aggressive. This market is my home, it’s my bread and butter, and if I don’t work here, then I don’t have money. I have 3 kids and a wife, at least I have a job to do everyday. Bottom line is, as long as you’re happy, that’s all eh. If you’re happy, never mind if you do hard job or any kind of job, if you’re happy that’s all. I choose to come here, I’m happy, it’s good for me and my kids.”

[Nasim, Fiji, told on 9 May in Suva, Fiji]
