McDonald’s India admits to discriminating against non-Muslims, buys only Halal meat for its restaurants

The Halal-Jhatka debate had come to the fore during the Zomato controversy. The food aggregator was accused of hypocrisy for claiming 'food has no religion' but going out of their way to satisfy their Muslim customers' demand for Halal food.

The global fast-food chain network, McDonald’s, has admitted to discriminating against non-Muslims as part of their business model in India. All their restaurants are Halal certified. As we have reported earlier, Halal is the Islamic method of slaughter which cannot be carried out by non-Muslims.

Halal can only be performed by a Muslim man. Thus, non-Muslims are automatically denied employment at a Halal meat firm. Guidelines by Halal certification authorities make it clear that non-Muslim employees cannot be employed in any part of the slaughtering process. Even the labelling of the meat can be done by Muslims only. Animals slaughtered by Non-Muslims will not be Halal.

The Halal-Jhatka debate had come to the fore during the Zomato controversy. The food aggregator was accused of hypocrisy for claiming ‘food has no religion’ but going out of their way to satisfy their Muslim customers’ demand for Halal food. It was finally forced to take cognizance of the Halal-Jhatka debate and conceded after immense public pressure that they will add a Jhatka tag on their app if customers demand it.

Thus, it appears that for all their talk of social justice and ‘Woke Activism’, multinational corporations like McDonald’s do not hesitate to indulge in institutional discrimination on the basis of religion to increase their profit margin. Halal is a discriminatory practice by its very nature.
