Respected Mufti Elias , As salaamu alaikum.
Please be more specific in your stance on the chickens,
Please clarify if by Makrooh you mean Makrooh Tahrimi Regarding the process that you witnessed.
As you used extremely strong terms to criticize the slaughtering system in your letter to SANHA and in subsequent related Q&A where you brand the scalder etc Makrooh, Only Makrooh Tahrimi will fit your description?
SANHA are in denial, whilst many Ulama from around the country are silent, even those that were present with you, i have tried several times to get any report / ststement from many of them but they simply do not reply, even Jamiat KZN are unable to negotiate access to Rainbow from SANHA, in light of this please kindly inform the Ummah via your website etc that Rainbow should be avoided.
SANHA hold you in a high regard an this matter is in crisis, is it not possible that you intervene so that SANHA sorts out the ‘bloody mess’ as you described and transforms the system in accordance with SHARIAH, even Rainbow themselves are willing to comply with Halaal requirements but SANHA have sold us out in acceptance of the current set-up , by making excuses to justify the various Haraam instead of getting a Shariah system in place.
