WHAT DO THE EUROPEAN UNION WANT TO DO?
Halal is an Islamic term and it belongs only to Muslims!
CEN (European Committee for Standardization) has set about a project on Halal Standards for food products’ packages in Europe and International markets. This is unacceptable.
Islam has been sent to Prophet Muhammed (p.b.h) and it is the last religion. Islam is based on Quran-al Karim and Prophet (p.b.h) sunnah.
Allah (swt) has protected this last religion for the past 1400 years, and will definitely continue to maintain it.
Halal is a pure Islamic term and only belongs to Muslims. Halal isn’t just a technical issue which Europeans can make up standards, formula and regulations as much as they wish. Muslims have responsibilities to Allah (swt). Allah has already set up all necessary rules and regulations clearly.
We are concerned by what Europeans are doing about Halal Standards and Certification. As Muslims, we are not going to allow non-Muslims to interfere in our religion.
CEN has to stop working on Halal standards. Muslims already know what they can consume or not. We don’t need to learn our religion from non-Muslims. In the afterlife, we will account for what he have done and obeying the EU norms and rules for Halal will not save us.
In 2013, Poland passed a bill in its parliament about ban of ritual Muslim and Jewish slaughter of animals. This means Poland do not respect the rights of people who would like to live his religion. And the same Poland is a member of CEN! How come the CEN will be able to prepare a Halal standard where its members even don’t care about beliefs and values of people?
Some European based private and official bodies are also said to contribute for the development of so-called “European Halal Standards”. It is not possible to have European, Asian or African standards separately. Islam is a world religion granted by Allah and thus it is open to all people. Ethnicity, region, race or any other factor cannot be a factor for discrimination. Muslims are the members of one single body : the Ummah. So there can be only a Halal Standard that will embrace the Ummah worldwide and this Standard can only be handled by Muslims.
Muslims and non-Muslims have to understand that the New World Order will only rise on Halal and Tayyib!
