    19 imported food items deemed ‘Haram’ – The Express Tribune

    A government official presented on Monday a list of 19 imported items containing ‘Haram’ ingredients being sold in the country to a National Assembly committee.

    Science and Technology Additional Secretary Muhammad Ejaz Mian brought forward the recommendation of the Pakistan Halal Authority, which regulates trade, imports and exports to prevent Haram products from being sold in the country.

    The official upheld the ministry has no authority to prevent the sale of these items.

    Here is a list of the 19 items termed ‘Haram’:

    1) Three brands of Skittles (UK)

    2) Bubblicious (UK)

    3) Chupa Bubble (Holland)

    4) Pascual Yogikids (Spain)

    5) Knorr Chicken Soup (France)

    6) Pasta Chicken Broccoli (USA)

    7) Slima Soup (UK)

    8) Picnic Chicken (USA)

    9) Cup A Soup (UK)

    10) Tulip Chicken (Denmark)

    11) Jell-O (US)

    12) Rice Chicken Broccoli (USA)

    13) Pasta Creamy Chicken (US)

    14) Heinz Dinner Chicken (England)

    15) Pop Tarts (USA)

    16) Two brands of Chicken Tonight (Holland)

    The items have been termed ‘Haram’ as they contain wines, gelatin and E120 (animal-based food colour) ingredients. While other items that may contain chicken which allegedly has not been slaughtered as per Islamic regulations have added to this list because of their ‘doubtful’ ingredients. Some other items which could not be ascertained as Halal or Haram have also been placed on the list.

    A draft of the bill seeking a mandate to prevent the sale of the food items has also been submitted to the cabinet and Council of Common Interests for approval. Once accepted, the items will not be sold in the country.

    I'm surprised that these items were cleared for import in the first place. Common man has no or little knowledge of what E-120 or gelatine is made off. If it's sold in the local super market, one assumes that it is halal.

    Grass is not haraam no matter what its source. It is a good green Islamic colour and it helps Pakistan build atomic bombs

    it comes from the same country, which was debating about mangoes (whether it is haram or halal). the best argument was it is haram because it is not mentioned in quran:rofl:

    I wonder when they behead people, do they do it the hallal way, i.e. Dhabīḥah?

    'Slaughter' is, in Islamic law, the prescribed method of ritual slaughter of all animals excluding locusts, fish, and most sea-life. This method of slaughtering animals consists of a swift, deep incision with a sharp knife on the throat, cutting the jugular veins and carotid arteries of both sides but leaving the spinal cord intact.

    The precise details of the slaughtering method arise from Islamic tradition educated by Muhammad, himself. It is used to comply with the conditions stated in the Qur'an:

    Forbidden for you are carrion, and blood, and flesh of swine, and that which has been slaughtered while proclaiming the name of any other than God, and one killed by strangling, and one killed with blunt weapons, and one which died by falling, and that which was gored by the horns of some animal, and one eaten by a wild beast, except those whom you slaughter; and that which is slaughtered at the altar and that which is distributed by the throwing of arrows [for an omen]; this is an act of sin.

    —al-Māʼidah 5:3

    Homosexuality is banned in Islam

    But Pakistanis dote on Beef.

    Cattle are known to have homosexual affinity.

    Anyone checks if it is a homosexual cow that is being eaten in Pakistan? Is that beef 'hallal'?
