Question Mark over 'Halaal' chicken served at Nando's in the UK?

Asalaamu Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,

If you are a regular at any Halaal Nando's outlet in the UK, please have a look at the following post;

There seems to be confusion over whether the 'Halaal' chicken is actually Halaal or not. I'm not suggesting its Haraam but it's best to do your own research before purchasing Halaal meat if you are able as there is no doubt that the Halaal meat trade in the UK is big business, and if you are in any doubts, its best to stay away from it.

Asalaamu'alaikum Brother and Sisters, 

After a recent meeting with HMC (halal monitoring committee) I can confirm that the chicken served by "Halal" nando outlets still is NOT HALAL. HMC personally inspected the slaughterhouse of Freemans and came up with this conclusion. My point of contact is Haroon Rashid. 
Their chickens are all electrocuted, the power is that much that some of the brains explode and so do nerve endings. They don't do ziba as the chickens flap around too much and it leads to their wings getting damaged. 
This is definitely not halal and not the way that Allah says to treat these animals. An extract taken from the guardian (astaghfirullah) website on the issue of fast-food taking the case of Freeman's who is the supplier of Nando's. "Newent sits in folds of lush countryside at the far western reach of the Cotswolds... hidden from view, is Freemans of Newent. 
Clifford Freeman and his cousin own this poultry abattoir. It is the largest halal plant in Britain, employing more than 250 people, slaughtering 300,000 chickens a week, and after considerable persuasion and hesitation Freeman has agreed to show me how it is done. 
The birds are collected from farms at night, transported to the site in the early hours of the morning, and kept in darkness until they are ready to be killed. Workers hang them upside down by their feet in shackles, suspended from a conveyor belt, or 'line', which then dangles them through an electrified bath. Their heads are submerged, and a high-frequency current in the water stuns them. The line keeps moving, taking the birds on to the slaughter area, where three men are standing ready to cut their throats".

The Guidance of the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) regarding that which has doubtful origins;

It was narrated by An-Nu'man bin Bashir (radhi Allahu anhu) that, "I heard Allah's Apostle (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) saying, 'Both legal and illegal things are evident but in between them there are doubtful (suspicious) things and most of the people have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from these suspicious things saves his religion and his honor. And whoever indulges in these suspicious things is like a shepherd who grazes (his animals) near the Hima (private pasture) of someone else and at any moment he is liable to get in it. (O people!) Beware! Every king has a Hima and the Hima of Allah on the earth is His illegal (forbidden) things. Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart.""
Sahih Al Bukhari  Volume 1, Book 2, Number 49
