Rules of Slaughter

If a Kafir slaughters after reciting Bismillah is it allowed to eat?

الاستفتاء

What do the respected Mufthis say about this? If a Kafir slaughters after reciting Bismillah is it allowed to eat? If no then why is the slaughtering of Ahl e Kithab Halal? Please reply with authentic references. Jazakumullah.
Esteemed Mufthis and learned Ulemas! Are there any Ahadees mentioning the virtues of Jihad e Hind?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

If the said Kafir is from among the Jews or Christians and he slaughters after reciting Bismillah then his slaughtered animal will be undoubtedly permissible and Halal whereas except for Muslims and Ahl e Kithab, the pure Sharia has prohibited eating from animals slaughtered by any Mushrik (one who attributes partners to Allah) or Murthad (Apostate). Hence it is necessary to avoid eating such food. Yes. Virtues of Jihad e Hind is manifested through the following many Narrations. Hadhrath Thowban Radhiyallahu Anhu narrates that Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam said "Two groups from my Ummath are such; that Allah Tha'ala has saved them from the fire of Hell. One of them is the group which will do Jihad in Hind and the other one is the group that will be with Hadhrath Isa bin Maryam Alaihimas Salam."
