Respected Mufti, As Salaamualaikum,
Mufti AK Hoosen of Channel Islam International and Urself of Radio Islam, have both said ‘abstain’ in relation to all commercial meat and Rainbow produced under the Anti-Islamic conditions in vogue at the commercial processing facilities.
Mufit EMH Salejee, Amir of Jamiat KZN has also stated that its ‘doubtful’ and better to abstain.
Mufti Siraj Desai said that although he is not happy with certain aspects he still maintains ‘only rainbow hammersdale as halaal’.. and will not confirm or reject the halaal status of the other rainbow plants.
SANHA, who hold you in a high regard, have up to now totally failed to address the concerns and are content to cry victim, and this is only making the situation more confusing.
We have additional affidavits, this morning i received another 2, that makes 10,
1. Tasmiyah is being omitted on many birds
2. Dead birds are slaughtered due to their inability to properly determine and remove from the line.
3. The scalder boils at different points in the day, and some birds fall into the scalder and are only removed at the end of the shift, the water is also not changed more than once daily.
these are apart from the cruelty to animals, whos rights are guaranteed by Islam and also additional to the fact that these birds are pumped with chemicals that make them unhealthy for humans.
considering all of these facts mentioned, is it not time to again take another step up in applying pressure to SANHA etc to change the system.
many Ulama i’ve spoken too, say that sanha is run like a gang of mafia and that is why they fear speaking out.
so many Ulama have tried and failed or are fearful of speaking out, what does the average Muslim do in this instance?
please stand up on the side of Haqq and make a clear and firm announcement to the Ummah about this ‘bloody mess’ which sanha are happily compounding with their deflection and denials.
1 slaughterer told me today that even if they (sanha ) try to bribe him into changing his statement, he will not as it is a matter of Haqq and very serious Shari importance!
