An Instagram user has shared a picture of chili sauce from Burger King, which indicates that its halal certification is from India.
The Halal certification for the Burger King sauce comes from the Halal Committee of Jamiat Ulama-E-Maharashtra which is a state unit of Jamiat Ulama-E-Hind (link: http://www.halalcommittee-jum.org/).
Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind is an organisation which has been fighting for freedom and justice of India’s Muslim population since 1919. It offers legal aid to Muslims accused in terror cases across the country.
Jamiat Ulema-e-Maharashtra’s head of the Law CellGulzar Azmi, explained why it provided such aid saying: “It has come to notice that several times innocent Muslim youth are arrested by police in the name of investigations and national security. It is a serious issue.”
The organisation also offers educational aid to students regardless of religion. Jamiat enjoys international recognition as the only National Body from India authorized to do Halal Certification of Indian Products.
