Uttar Pradesh Implements Ban on Halal-Certified Products

In a recent development, the state of Uttar Pradesh has enforced a ban on Halal-certified products, citing concerns for public health and safety. The government, led by Yogi Adityanath, issued an order on November 18th, prohibiting the storage, production, distribution, and sale of Halal-certified food, medicine, and cosmetics. Exceptions are made for food items designated for export, which will still undergo the Halal certification process.

This decision follows a case filed against certain organisations, accusing them of exploiting religious beliefs for financial gain and noting an increase in fake certifications. The government contends that items like soap, oil, and toothpaste do not require certification, deeming the ban essential to prevent confusion.

Alleging deliberate criminal conspiracies, the state argues that falsified Halal certifications compromise social integrity and violate public trust. Some companies are accused of accumulating profits for potentially nefarious purposes.

Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind Halal Trust, a targeted organisation, vehemently denies these allegations, asserting compliance with all regulations and expressing intent to counter misinformation legally. They insist on following the rule that all Halal certification companies must be registered with the Council of India.
