Delhi civic bodies to propose eateries displaying boards informing if they serve ‘Jhatka or Halal’ meat

The North and South Delhi Municipal Corporations are set to come up with a proposal that makes it mandatory for all restaurants under their jurisdiction to display specifying whether they are serving halal or ‘jhatka’ meat, reported Hindustan Times.

This comes a week after the East Delhi Municipal Corporation passed a similar resolution to notify restaurants to display the kind of meat they are serving to their customer.

The office bearers of both NDMC and SDMC said they will hold meetings with the health department and bring a proposal in the standing committee and house meeting for final approval. Reportedly, the resolution is being passed to protect the sentiments of the Hindu and Sikh Community who do not consume Halal meat.

Speaking to the media North Delhi Municipal Corporation Mayor Adesh Gupta said they received a letter from the Delhi BJP national secretary RP Singh recently, demanding to bring a proposal to make it mandatory to display boards mentioning the kind of meat served. “There are Sikh residents who do not eat halal meat. The decision has been taken to ensure that their religious sentiments are not hurt”, the Mayor said.

The East Delhi Municipal Corporation had passed a resolution on August 30th, declaring that it is mandatory for all east Delhi restaurants to display whether they serve ‘jhatka’ or halal meat.

South Corporation mayor Narendra Chawla, supported the proposal, “If the shops selling raw meat display such boards, then why can’t restaurants serving non-vegetarian dishes do the same? The consumer has the right to know what they are eating”. However, AAP leader Anil Lakra said that this was just another political stunt to win the confidence of some communities.
