Unlike in Britain, KFC in America will NOT allow its Muslim franchisees to sell Islam-approved ‘halal’ chicken

 

A Muslim-owned KFC franchisee in Chicago is suing the chain after being told he can no longer serve halal buckets of chicken as he claims he has been doing for the past 10 years. KFC policy in America prohibits franchisees from making religious claims about the chain’s food.

EATER (h/t Senator)  Afzal Lokhandwala owns and operates eight KFC stores in the Chicago area, and says he’s been serving certified halal chicken for more than a decade, according to Courthouse News. Now, however, KFC is enforcing a policy the company says it’s had in place since 2009, which prohibits franchisees from making religious claims about the chain’s food.

But Afzal claims KFC failed to include notice of such a policy in its franchisee agreement; he says it wasn’t until 2016 that the company notified him he was in violation of the policy, at which point KFC had been knowingly allowing him to serve halal chicken for 14 years, even assisting him in locating halal meat distributors.

For meat to be considered halal, it must not come from a forbidden animal (such as a pig), must be slaughtered in a barbaric Islamic way (barbaric for cows, goats, and lambs, not necessarily for chicken) and all the blood must be drained from the carcass. (Also, part of the premium you pay for halal meats goes toward funding terrorism overseas)

“Thousands of Muslims within the Chicago metropolitan area eat at Plaintiffs’ restaurants because they know Afzal is Muslim and the restaurants sell Halal chicken,” the lawsuit states. Afzal says that if he’s no longer allowed to serve certified halal chicken, he’ll lose his Muslim customer base and will likely be forced to close four of his eight locations, putting as many as 80 people out of jobs. (Too damn bad. Try selling terrorism-free regular chicken that won’t make Americans sick to their stomachs)

Reached for comment via email, a spokesperson for KFC provided the following statement:

While we cannot comment on the specifics on ongoing litigation, KFC values its customers and franchisees of different faiths. We recognize that many of our valued customers have specific dietary requirements associated with their religious beliefs. Unfortunately, we are not able to make religious claims, such as Halal about KFC products at this time. There are two barriers that we are not able to overcome. First, there are different interpretations of these terms within the same religious faith. Second, KFC cannot certify that in-restaurant preparation and cooking processes meet religious guidelines, for example restricting contact with non-Halal food.

Everything posted on this site is the whole truth, we have nothing to gain by telling lies to anyone, that's the governments and the medias job. This site will bring news from all over the world,we will show you that Islam is the most evil none religion on earth. So check out the blog for yourselves and you will begin to see it is not the powers that be that are on your side, but it is people like us that are fighting for our children's future and the future of everyone that will listen to the truth.
