Kahrut is the kindest form of slaughter A very sharp knife is used to cut the jugular vain and the animal bleeds to death very quickly When you stun an animal it feels pain and sometimes you have to stun then 2-3 times. Kashrut there is no pain from the stunning they are in pain for a matter of seconds. There are very strict laws with Kashrut if the blade of the knife has the slightest nick then the animal will be considered non kosher. Rules like this are for to cause the animal as little pain as possible. Its not only ultra orthodox jews who worry about kashrut, many ordinary generally secular jews still see Kashrut as important and will only eat kosher food. I used to go out with a woman she went to the synagogue just a few times a year on the main religious days like Yom Kippur, she did not keep Shabbat but she did keep kosher Minarets are not religious they were built to call muslims to prayer before the days of watches & alarm clocks they are not in themselves holy places
