CIWFs graphic film of the appalling conditions in Bassatin slaughterhouse in Cairo shocked the delegates. Many pointed out that Islamic law prohibits many of the abuses shown cattle being beaten to the floor, dying animals bleeding out on top of each other and in full view of live animals and knives being shown to the cattle before their throats were cut. A second film, viewed later in the day, showed cattle having their tendons cut to bring them to the floor to be slaughtered clearly against Islamic teaching which prohibits injuring animals before slaughter
 
Do not watch the movie.
