I have posted before about Halal certification and how it is a money making scam that benefits Islam. Imagine being able to profit from simply giving authorisation for a Halal symbol to be put on thousands of products ranging from food to toilet paper, from cat food to shampoo and all at little or no cost to yourself. The Halal symbol serves no purpose except to let the consumer know that the product contains no pork and is permissible to eat or drink if you are a Muslim. Shockingly Halal symbols can be found on thousands of items that are not food or drink and that therefore do not need a warning symbol.
To put it into perspective imagine that there was a Peanut Free symbol that started off only being put on drinkable or edible products.Now imagine that the Ideology of Peanut Free people lobbied to be able to form organisations to certify products as peanut free with their own special symbol despite the fact that the list of ingredients on the products already provide that information. Now imagine that they then extend this symbol to be included on products like toilet paper, shampoo and cat food, products that have never ever had anything to do with peanuts and make millions of dollars by doing so.
In Australia a boycott of Halal labelled products by consumers has motivated some companies to shun Halal certification. Some are even promoting their products as “non-halal certified.”In response some Certification organisations have started naming and shaming the companies who choose to not be Halal certified as well as threatening trade bans.
