The long-running battle between the need to go halal or stay non-halal has always been a big issue in some countries.
It is one that sparks debate in Singapore too, at times, and the Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS) recent statement that Subway restaurants were interested in serving Halal food sparked a debate on Twitter.
“Please Don’t Go Halal” for Subway said the brand should stay non-halal because there are not enough non-halal fast food restaurants in Singapore and proceeded on saying: ‘I want my pork’.
The user also said that those who want Subway to remain non-Halal should start a “Please Don’t Go Halal” petition, said WFTV today.
Another netizen then responded by saying that there are many non-halal restaurants in Singapore and Muslims aren’t complaining, while when it’s vice versa when it comes to Halal restaurants?
