OFF TOPIC BUT.......
My uncle once was given a cat to look after whilst his neighbour went away on holiday.
My uncle fed the cat with halal meat left overs and also fresh cuttings of meat.
When the neighbour returned he was give the cat back. The cat owner was confused as the cat wouldn't eat any thing and he thought the cat was sick. He asked my uncle what he was feeding the cat. So he told him that he fed him halal meat only. So the cat owner tried to give the cat halal meat and the cat ate very well. He was suprised but couldn't believe the cat was able to tell, so he gave the cat haram meat. The cat refused to eat it, and when halal meat was given, it ate again.
THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS WAS
In the past we as Muslims used to go to a place and look at the individual and the environment and make a judgement call.
Now, we look for the label.
HMC need a STICK!
I Agree with all the points so far by every one. Please dont get me wrong.
But......At the end of the day, The Label is calling the activities HALAL TOO
I guess no one has spoken to non muslims who say "I DIDNT KNOW YOUR RELIGION ALLOWED THIS THAT AND THE OTHER" You ask them why they have that opinion and its because of the experiance from a 100% Halal food joint, where the experiance was Islamic.
Yes we are to blame for going in, but why call it Halal, when only the ingredints are!
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
