CATHAY CINEMAS NO LONGER SERVE HALAL CERTIFIED SNACKS FROM 1 APRIL 2015

I am disgusted to find out that Cathay Cinema is not longer going to be Halal certified from 1 April 2015. This is outrageous! How can Cathay sukasuka just stop being Halal when they have it for so many years? Now Muslims customers can no longer buy Cathay cinema popcorn, hotdogs, nachos. Since you don't provide Halal food, will you also not allow us to bring our own snacks inside the cinema? Like that how now?

DEFENCE MINISTER: MALAYS ARE ALREADY SERVING AS SAILORS IN THE NAVY

Responding to a question on a perceived bias against Malays in the SAF and why they have been excluded from the Navy until now, Dr Ng said it was a "practical issue" of having halal-certified kitchens onboard ships. "(This is) because in a confined space, it is hard to have a halal kitchen. If you spend months out at sea, it is difficult." But provisions have been made for Malay Muslims who are willing to serve, said Dr Ng. "So we made and found some accommodation and started to have Malays in the navy as well, if the person is willing."

FRENCH COURT OVERTURNS RULING ORDERING HALAL FOOD IN JAIL

A French court on Tuesday cancelled a November ruling ordering a prison to provide halal meals for Muslim prisoners, in the latest legal battle over an issue that has caused controversy in the secular republic. The issue of halal meat is a controversial topic in the country and has been used as a political football. The leader of the far-right National Front party Marine Le Pen launched a fierce row before the last presidential polls in 2012 by claiming that all meat distributed in the Paris region was halal, or slaughtered according to Islamic law, and that non-Muslim consumers were being misled.

SUPERMARKET APOLOGISES AFTER MUSLIM CASHIER REFUSED TO HANDLE CUSTOMER’S HAM & WINE

A Muslim cashier at a Tesco store refused to serve a customer buying ham and wine because he said it was Ramadan. The till operator told Julie Cottle he would not touch the items as they are considered forbidden by Islam and said she should use the self- service tills instead. When Miss Cottle, 43, from Neasden, north-west London, complained to the manager, he backed the worker’s right to refuse to serve her because it was the holy month of Ramadan and he was fasting. But Tesco has now apologised for Monday’s incident and said the worker had been ‘spoken to’.

It has come to our attention of some accusations that we process halal and non-halal meats in the same machines.
