On August 5 (only last month), the scientists produced cultured meat in a lab in the Netherlands and prepared a burger and served it in a press meat in London. The man who produced this lab-grown meat is Prof. Mark Post. He had taken a few stem cells from a cow and grew them into strips of muscles to be used for a burger by chef Richard McGeown. It was tasted by food critics Hanni Ruetzler, a food researcher from Future Foods. It is being called test-tube meat, or In-vitro meat or victimless meat. This flesh has never been part of a living animal. But how would we treat it from the Islamic point of view, is still not certain. Do not rush to conclusion. We need to study the issue very deeply.
