This article (and the Kosher article) would probably benefit from a more thorough debunking of the claim that X certified foods go to support/are actually a tax paid to the evil Y. I might look into it if I have any free time in December. If anyone wants to talk it before then, be my guest.

A good way to prove that you are anti-Islam rather than anti-Muslim (or anti-Judaism rather than anti-Jew) is to avoid attacking dietary practices like halal (or kosher), which don't matter very much.[edit]

What a ridiculous and flippant claim. What is real - the suffering of an innocent creature What isn't real - a God who is somehow placated by the act that his followers put animals through pain before eating them This is a cruel practice, and it's completely divorced from Islam or Judaism or any other religion that requires it. I do not abide by the idea of cultural relativism, and nor should this site - fact is, this an objectively cruel practice that doesn't even have the "benefit" of a justification, it should not be allowed to continue. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 17:15, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

You can tell when someone is "anti-Muslim" if they attack a Muslim-owned abattoir for the way they kill their animals, but are perfectly fine eating non-Halal food prepared the same way. Especially if it's an abattoir that stuns its animals.-- 2A02:C7D:6056:EE00:60A9:86F9:7665:E5D6 (talk) 18:34, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Discrimination in Halal food Certification[edit]

According to Halal, only a Muslim should do slaughtering. This is employment discrimination against non-Muslims and it should be mentioned in the article. — Unsigned, by: Indianfreethinker / talk / contribs
