Some profits from Halal Certification in Australia go to fund Mosques, Islamic schools & even overseas to anti-Western forces. I'm not OK with this, are you? The documentary explains very clearly the place of Sharia law in all this, how Halal food is used to fund its advance and why that should deeply concern us.
Questions arising include:
- Why are the general public required to fund Halal certification?
- The many Certification organisations and the huge fees they can charge;
- What of those religious groups such as Sikhs, who are not permitted to eat Halal?
- Many Halal products are poorly labelled, even unlabelled - don't Sikhs have the same religious rights as Muslims regarding their food? Why then are such products not clearly labelled?
- Why are people accused of racism for raising any objections?
I wonder if we have similar issues in New Zealand? Well again, if it's happening in Aussie is it impossible to think that it might happen here? If I remember correctly all our Chicken and nearly all our Lamb, due to our trade ties with Iran going back decades, is Halal. How is the Certification handled in NZ and where does any money made from it end up? Is there any corruption involved? Has anyone ever investigated any of this?
Maybe it's time we started asking a few reasonable questions. This is most definitely not a case where it is "none of our business".
Personally too I think of the suffering the animal undergoes when dying. The NZ Deerstalkers Association has been warned by some leading animal rights activists & Vets that the common practise of finishing off a shot animal by cutting its throat may be soon considered animal cruelty. If that's the case then isn't Halal slaughter, where the animal is not permitted to be stunned before death, also an act of animal cruelty?
Don't miss this. Really, it's very important.
Halal Certification - the unpalatable facts
Q Society of Australia Inc and HalalChoices present this new documentary exposing the unregulated mess that is the Halal Certification industry in Australia. The members and volunteers of QSA have been at the forefront of informing Australians about halal certification schemes for many years. In return they have been vilified, threatened, attacked and sued. This documentary goes behind the scenes and shows the activists, the politicians and the consumers, who are impacted by these devious schemes.
