A Truck Full of Smelly Heads.

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/11/Heads01-thumb.jpg
Spotted this a few days back, it smelled like hell and it made me loose my appetite and the thought that brains out of one of these heads might end up on my platter when I order Brain Masala at some restaurant give me creeps and now I never ever want to eat Brain Masala.

P.s. My cousin thinks, there is beef under these heads and I don’t want to believe him.

    Jamash: First point is that meat in our houses are washed with such care that I am sure that even the minutest germs are killed. Looks like you havent been to Kamela yet :). Infact I am more than certain none of you is aware of what Kamela is lol.

    Anyways meat is distributed like this. Like it it or not. I would still prefer this meat over ‘imported packaged meat’ which comes from 1000s of miles away *like in the West*. Atleast that meat in the picture is fresh and is will definately be washed in your house.

    Still no satisfied, eat chicken :)

    Goes to speak volumes about the state of food hygiene in the country. I think we need to start demanding more hygenically prepared meat to get investors to take it up as a buisness idea.

    btw, @ IllusionFS: washing up doesnt kill any germs. Germs can only be killed if the meat is thoroughly cooked up to a certain temperature while preparing food.

    We in Pakistan over cook meat ( thats what all the bhoonna is about),then in case of curries it is cooked for over an hour, it is only the medium and rare type of cooking as in case of BBQs and steaks where the blood is still oozing out which carries germs, once the blood part is taken care of less chances of disease…one reason for the halal meat is also to get rid of the blood which the goras so lovingly prefer in their steaks…calling it moist and juicy….
    so have as much brain masala as you want and its not the germs but the cholestrol, you should worry about!

    @IllusionFS: when is the last time you went to a kamela? if ever. The Kamelas, wholesale markets like empress market or ranchore line have everything but hygiene. I am sure if you see how the animals are slaughtered and meat is processed, you will stop eating it.

    Kashif, that was exactly my point. That you were whining about this, wait till you goto Kamela. lol

    I dont think i could ever do what those two guys are doing in that picture, one is sitting on top of all that meat and the other is taking a nap :O man doesnt the smell iritate them? speaking of meat after watching an episode of ‘George ka Pakistan’ where George goes to buy meat and see’s them cutting meat while holding the knives in their toes and sitting next to an open gutter…not that is really unhygienic. Thank god we have nothing like that in our area.

    Umer Zaman,

    I stand by my claim that in case of halal meat the blood from the sacrificed animal is drained out as it is high in uric acid and thus reason for many disease.( now proved scientifically)In human beings it is excreted as a waste product and in fact 98%of the body’s uric acid is extracted from the blood by the kidneys and removed through urination.

    Blood anyways is not halal and the juicy medium or rare steaks which taste so great do have the blood content…one of the reasons steaks in Pakistan and some muslim countries are not as great and famous as their European or american counterparts.

    In case of halal meat the wielder of the knife, whilst taking the name of the ‘Almighty’, makes an incision through the jugular veins, leaving all other veins and organs intact, this causes the death of the animal by a total loss of blood from the body, rather than an injury to any vital organ.

    If the organs, example the heart, the liver, or the brain crippled or damaged, the animal could die immediately and its blood would congeal in its veins and would eventually permeate the flesh. This implies that the animal flesh would be permeated and contaminated with uric acid and therefore very poisonous; only today did our dieticians realize such a thing.

    If I am wrong, I Will have appreciate it if you could correct me on this issue!!
