I find this thread fascinating. I have partaken in many threads of a similar ilk on facebook and find that they get inflammatory way before this one got to this stage.
The reasons that people have given on other threads (facebook) is that
- the costs are passed onto the consumers
- if we buy halal certified foods we are funding organisations which are funding terrorism
Once you break it down, it doesn't seem as rational.
If you are worried about costs being passed onto the consumer - the don't buy the product -buy a similar product which doesn't have the halal certification.
Then again - I really believe that corporations which are gaining halal certification aren't doing it out of the goodness of their hearts (I think they are doing it to maintain or gain a part of the market - which means there will be no extra cost to passed onto the consumer as it's in their own "best interest")
Point 2 - Funding of terrorist organisations is against the law in Australia - therefore if there was any substance to the claims that paying for a halal certification funded any terrorist organisation then the company benefitting would be persecuted and we haven't seen that happen in Australia (yes, that has been proven in Canada (and I think in USA), but without any substantial proof here - it's all hear say.)
Any of the talk regarding boycotting of halal certified products on other forums I am a party of have been regarding people being worried about the two reasons I've listed above and have barely mentioned about the slaughter of animals

ETA: I'm in the process of doing further investigation and have uncovered some additional 'reasons' of the halal boycott. I have been given some more information but I need to analyse it further before I will post.

I know it's OT from halal.... but what is the basis for separating dairy and meat in kosher?
26-10-2014 11:05 #184
Because the Torah says so - In exodus G-d says not to cook a goat in its mothers milk - this is then taken to mean not to mix meat and dairy
Some say because it was more hygienic not to back in the day and currently it's been found that meat and dairy together do not digest well but when I asked my sisters rabbi why the strict kosher rules he said because G-d wants you to think of him and your religion daily by adhering to rules that must be used daily ( and we all eat food daily ) not just on special occasions or holidays
I'm not sure why Muslims are not as strict or the Christians for that matter as they both acknowledge exodus and deuteronomy ?
