A A A

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) today proposed that the Government should issue halal certification under mechanism that is acceptable to all stakeholders.

Addressing a news conference in Colombo, the ACJU said the Government could model the process in line with what was presently being adopted by the Thailand and Singapore Governments. (H.F)

    In Sri Lanka we have Public Heath Inspectors who inspect the quality of food that is served to the public. This do not need any other mechanism to check the quality. If All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama want special food for their people, they can run special shops.

    pathma Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:29 PM

    why gov. involve this odd matter for a small community ? and how they were eating things from the olden days ?let them eat as they were.
    government has more important things than halal >>>>

    m jifry Wednesday, 27 February 2013 05:59 PM

    under the cloud of Halaal govt has increased the price of Fuel.Expect some OTHER prices too to go up before the cloud moves away...........!

    Corera Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:31 PM

    I think the ACJU is avoiding another bloody war in this country, which i salute.

    Justice seeker Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:36 PM

    Mangala,
    Grow up. Get out of your narrow box. Think broad like the Buddhist of Thailand do. Think economics like the Thais do. With such narrow minded people like you this country will be always in the economic doldrums and will go down to hell. If that is what you and your ilk are dragging this country to, God save the nation.

    armrizwan Wednesday, 27 February 2013 12:45 AM

    ACJU............. halal is some thing very precious and very pure. Pls do not give this to corrupted hands of the government.

    zeylanicus Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:35 PM

    If you don't want halal products, don't buy them. Buy non-halal products instead.

    If the producers/manufacturers don't give non-halal products, ask them to do so.

    gonga Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:42 PM

    Why ACJU asking to charge all expenses from business party? ACJU must pay all expenses to the government. Because of they ask halal service. Every one has to pay if they seek for a particular service.

    Ebraham Wednesday, 27 February 2013 11:28 AM

    Why don't you suggest India, America or Tamil Diaspora for this purpose? Because they too know about Sri Lanka as well.... isn't it??

    semage Tuesday, 26 February 2013 01:32 PM

    Good suggestion. Instead of minority taking a commission from everyone, give it to the Gov like a tax to fairly distribute to all.

    mnsmart Wednesday, 27 February 2013 02:39 AM

    what will be the credibility of the certificate if issued by a gov institution.

    Good Work by ACJU, now its government responsibility to provide Halal food for their Muslim citizen.

    Anver Tuesday, 26 February 2013 01:37 PM

    Well done. The ball is in the government's court.

    Faris Wednesday, 27 February 2013 05:58 AM

    If governemnt make it compulsory like ISO / SLS what will happen.

    Patriot Wednesday, 27 February 2013 08:44 AM

    waseem Wednesday, 27 February 2013 12:00 AM

    Good idea! Everyone wins - No need to worry about fund being used else where. Export market for manufacturers are not affected. Go for it as long as Sri Lanka wins!

    Who will sign the certificate? Mervin and Mithripala

    Mangala Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:04 PM

    We have SLS. THAT IS ENOUGH. I think people are sick of hearing this halal case. It is very clear we are not asking halal.And do not try to impose it on us. Keep your halal with you or anywhere you want, BUT NOT IN SRILANKA.

    sham Wednesday, 27 February 2013 06:24 AM

    why our people are fighting for Halal certificate???
    it is simple, muslims will use the things with the halal certificate...
    others can use the things which are without ceritificate...

    Fusion Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:08 PM

    Yup, this would be the right thing. Thailand is a Theravada country and Singapore is predominately Mahayana. So why not SLS have a halal certification? SLS should also have certifications for Vegetarian, Vegan, Non-alcoholic foods as well as health foods with less fat & sugar.

    Z Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:14 PM

    You nailed it ACJU!! Let's see the true colours of the GOSL now!!

    good move.

    Minisath Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:46 PM

    Would this serve the purpose? The government is anyway notorious with corrupted politicos and officials. Nobody would trust the process. It is a great injustice to the Halal users.
    What does the BBS achieve by this? May be fulfilling its envy thoughts, and of course producing and developing hatred.

    frank hilary Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:47 PM

    Good move by ACJU. Since halal is a requirement by muslims and cannot be done away with, Govt. should step in and provide the facility to those concerned.

    Makanjula Wednesday, 27 February 2013 09:34 AM

    Shall we ask Israel to help us sort out? They know better than us ?

    seeyai Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:09 PM

    Muslims does not need Halal products certified by SL government.

    sham Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:17 PM

    It is clearly notifird that the requirement initiated by companies not by ACJU, companies need such cdrtificate to market their product in islakic countries.... please let us live in peace dont preach hatred.....enough is enough.....

    dod Tuesday, 26 February 2013 12:00 AM

    Very good move by ACJU. I appreciate ur intelligent n peaceful decision.
