New Delhi: The senior mufti of the Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat in Bareilly has issued a fatwa, or an Islamic edict, against popular food outlet Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), terming it a ‘sin’ to eat there.
The senior mufti Salim Noori said that the chicken served in KFC outlets is not halaal and is not according to Islamic law. The KFC outlets do not process the meat in front of eyes of Muslims, therefore it is haraam in Islam.
“The halal certificates displayed at these stores have no relevance as they do not give details about the procedure that they follow to process the meat,” Noori said.
The mufti alleged that the KFC stores do not process or cook the meat in an Islamic way which makes it haram and is against the Shariyat law.
