The Halal is a Muslim traditional way of killing Animal and in this process, A Muslim slaughterer comes to the specific shop or the food processing company and kills the animal as per the Muslim system of slaughtering.
What is this Halal:
In Halal, a Muslim Slaughterer slits the throat of an animal and chants the Thasmia and Shahadha which comes under Karma. These are the Arabic hymns.
Can anyone follow this system?
Only Muslims who are certified by the Muslim authorities or mullahs should follow this Halal method. Other than Muslims are not allowed to do Halal to the animal. This method is followed by certified Halal India’s slaughterers only. The certified slaughterers charge a certain amount for only killing the animal in this method. The companies are also charged by Halal India directly or indirectly.
Jews follow this similar method which is called as Khosher meat.
Why is this not compulsory?
As per the new rules of APEDA (Agricultural and Processed food export Development Authority), there is no need to export red meat by slaughtering by Halal-certified people. The slaughterer without Halal certification also can slaughter within in one jab. This method is called Jhatka in North India.
Why is this decision taken by the government?
To have some meat, the restaurants, hotels, and food export companies follow the halal method, which needs to pay some to them.
Why the government is so specific about these small charges?
As per research about Halal meat, globally it did 4.54 trillion Dollars of Business in 2017 only. Business People are major contributors. If the Halal meat is not required for the export, they could have saved millions of dollars to Business People. Oriental countries: Vietnam Singapore Thailand and Japan and Sri Laka etc. do not require Halal meet. Only when the clients are from the Muslim community, the Halal meet should be provided.
This small step could save millions to Small Medium and large companies.
