From many years several activists in several countries have risen up against “Halal”. Be it Australia or America or India, all the countries face a common problem from this. Several reports have shown how it is a huge racket which is funding a huge terrorist black market.

Halal is not just about meat!

To tell you in plain and simple terms, halal means “done the Islamic way”. There is a popular misconception that it is just about food. That’s absolutely wrong. Anything in the world can be “certified” to be done the Islamic way (except pork, alcohol, churches and temples of course!) . Be it roads, or mosques, or drinks, or food, or for that matter any damn thing, Muslim clerics take a huge cut and certify that the said product has been manufactured. made as prescribed under Islam. It is the direct opposite of haram – which means something against Islam. In a nutshell, halal is as per Islam and haram is against Islam.

So what is the problem with it?

It has several disadvantages. The first and the obvious one being that all the money a business pays towards a halal certification goes down the pockets of radical Muslims. Several researchers have traced how the money paid for halal certifications actually end up in pockets of terrorists in Saudi and Iraq.

The second main issue with it is that it destroys that domestic economy. With the introduction of these Islamic methods businessmen are tending toward them and abandoning traditional and indigenous ways to do something. For example, with the introduction of halal meat, all the traditional meat cutters lost their business.

Boycott it, for yourself and your country

In several instances, scientists have proved that the “halal way to do something” is not the best way. One must take a call whether it is the way to go when alternatives exist. We must think about the indigenous traders who want to continue our traditional methods rather than buy only from rich businessmen who want to appease a few.

So, haven’t we Hindus done the same to many Hindu dharmic process and ecosystem from using gillette to shave to whole lot of things like our textiles, art, cooks, cobblers and not only spoile the economy but also our pristine environment. Secondly, in using UK, USA and EU goods and services, the profits carted away has been used to fund simply sitting and monthly eating muslim refugees in those countries who enjoy better living standards than an family earning one crore per annum in India and there is extra money left with those countries from the profits from India to be used to fund Pigisthan to destroy India.

  2. Please provide more factual data to support the loss endured by the local cuisine against Halal. ANy article can be written telling the opposite without any verifiable factual data.

  3. We don’t need halal or the certification that demand a payment to use that sticker however some major companies have cadburies example have a sticker on there products they do wrong paying you don’t have a kosher sticker for Jews or for christians so stop this demand from islam it could be start to claim every one has to conform to there way simple answer do not allow it to happen government should make laws to stop I have lost count to how many Islamic organization’s are being paid from taxpayers cash ? to run segregated schools when in Rome do as the Romans do lets start to get our polices in the right order

  4. This is a news to me
    My idea was Halal is related to meat only when the animal is killed by cutting the wind pipe and allowed to die under pain of suffocation.This is just opposite to Gillotine .

    • In Australia, moslems have FORCED halal certification of almost everything, including; cat food, womens sanitary items, toothpaste, plastic wrap, toilet paper, kitty litter, fertiliser, water, milk, eggs, fruit and veges, and MANY MANY more, including VEGEMITE and PORK!!!

    • not at all.Halal certification is applied to ginance- banks hardeare rental cars health and skin vare medication clothing shoes groceries rtc etc

  5. When I lived in Ontario, I used to buy it hearing that it was Jewish kosher, only
    recently I have heard differently
