KFC Refuses To Be Bullied After Muslim Group Just Demanded They Change Famous Recipe To Meet Absurd Islamic Demands

By Frontlines Newsaccess_time3 weeks ago
Kentucky Fried Chicken is a highly successful chain restaurant. They have been around for decades. And they won’t be leaving. But the legal dispute they are caught up in is threatening that. More importantly, it is over some of the most absurd nonsense that will make your stomach turn.



A group of Muslim believers is campaigning for Kentucky Fried Chicken to shut down their businesses if they do not serve halal food. It is a movement that is gaining a lot of support in New Zealand all thanks to a Facebook and social media campaign. They have gained over 2,000 likes in a little over a month and their support continues to grow.

The US Herald reported,

“The movement is being led by Syeda Fouzia, who said the process of delivering halal food ‘is not that difficult.’ ‘We’ve had some criticism, but having halal certification will only mean more people will be able to eat at KFC. It won’t affect non-Muslims,’ UK-born Ms. Fouzia told reporters.

However what seems to be missing in all of this is KFC’s iconic branding within the fast food industry and whether it might actually affect its business model around the world, in that the entire concept of KFC is its branding persona of it’s carefully guarded “top-secret” original recipe which includes a blend of 11 herbs and spices.

However, Ms. Fouzia has gained a lot of support online asking why the simple transition can’t be made to include “halal KFC?” “Just like to point out KFC is a multi-national fast food corporation, it has about as much cultural bearing on New Zealander’s way of life as Tacobell,” one person said.

But not everyone was having it from the bully Muslims:

Fortunately, KFC has no intention of caving in to the demands of these pushy Muslims. ‘We appreciate their request, however, the issues relating to us being able to certify halal product for customers remain,’ said a KFC a spokesperson. ‘We have no plans to re-introduce halal in New Zealand.’ Well, there you have it. Nice job KFC!”
Good for KFC

I think KFC sucks a donkey's butt nowadays. That does not give the Muslim imbeciles any right to demand that businesses have to conform to their view.

Anybody know what in the hell happened to the "Original Recipe" Kentucky Fried Chicken was well known for?

That goofy headline tho.

I'm going with a nonbiased source.

https://i.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local...rve-halal-food

Sounds like they just want to be able to eat at KFC in New Zealand. Halal certified KFCs and other chains already exist in other countries.



No need for the phony outrage.

Most animals are alive before they die.

So you believe that religious beliefs should dictate how businesses are run? Or just the religion of Islam?

There, there.

Easy. Don't eat where you don't like the food preparation. Those weenies need a life. Better yet, get a KFC franchise and fix the food your way.

Phony outrage my ass.

I don't think animal abuse is fine. I'm shocked you do

What is halal meat?


Halal is Arabic for permissible. Halal food is that which adheres to Islamic law, as defined in the Koran.

The Islamic form of slaughtering animals or poultry, dhabiha, involves killing through a cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe.

UK slaughterhouses must be completely halal compliant
Animals must be alive and healthy at the time of slaughter and all blood is drained from the carcass. During the process, a Muslim will recite a dedication, know as tasmiya or shahada.

There is debate about elements of halal, such as whether stunning is allowed.

Stunning cannot be used to kill an animal, according to the Halal Food Authority (HFA), a non-profit organisation that monitors adherence to halal principles. But it can be used if the animal survives and is then killed by halal methods, the HFA adds.

How widespread is stunning?
The RSPCA says slaughter without pre-stunning causes "unnecessary suffering".

Stunning of livestock
Introduced in England in 1929 with mechanically operated stunner device
Mandatory in EU since 1979, but exemptions can be granted for religious slaughter
Method enables abattoirs to process animals more quickly
Mis-stuns involving captive bolt occur "relatively frequently", European Food Safety Authority report says - leaving animal conscious and in pain
Animals can also regain consciousness
UK Food Standards Agency figures from 2011 suggest 84% of cattle, 81% of sheep and 88% of chickens slaughtered for halal meat were stunned before they died.

Supermarkets selling halal products say they stun all animals before they are slaughtered. Tesco says the only difference between the halal meat it sells and other meat is that it was blessed as it was killed.

Stunning of livestock has been mandatory in the the EU since 1979, although member states can grant exemptions for religious slaughter.

Some countries, including Denmark, have opted to ban non-stunning slaughter altogether. The UK government says it has no intention of banning religious slaughter.

Is it different from kosher meat?
Kosher food complies with Jewish dietary law (kashrut), again governing what can and cannot be eaten by those practising the faith.

There are similarities in the method of slaughter in that both require use of a surgically sharp knife and specially-trained slaughtermen.

Jewish law strictly forbids the use of stunning and meats are not blessed in the same way.

Unlike for halal, kashrut does not require God's name to be said before every slaughter after an initial blessing.

Kashrut forbids the consumption of certain parts of the carcass, including the sciatic nerve and particular fats.

Halal also forbids consumption of some carcass parts including the testicles and bladder.

What are the rules on labeling?
Currently, there is no requirement for halal or kosher meat to be specifically labelled.
