Have we let it go too far?
Much has been said and much has been discussed regarding the halaal food trade in South Africa. Although the halaal food trade is gradually becoming a growing concern for many South Africans, it has been in this country for many years. The Muslim Judicial Council claims to be “in the field of Halaal certification for over 50 years and was the first such authority in all Africa” (MJC 2012). In other words, it has been over fifty years that South Africans have been consuming halaal products.
