Stunned meat

Salaam wr

I wanted to know whether stunned meet is classed as halal. In particular I wanted to know whether it is halal to eat at Nandos who are certified by Freemans as halal. They say they stun their meat at high voltage to ensure it does not die but is unconscious and have been approved by the Islamic Council of jurisprudence. I know scholars are divided on the opinion however have heard many are now accepting stunned meat. What would be your advice?
