The Halal Law

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Muslims are making many political strides to mold our piece of America into a halal experience as much as possible. A few states such as Texas and Illinois have passed halal laws which make it illegal to sell, process, or prepare for consumption (restaurants) food as halal without it being certified as being halal by a meeting a preset of criteria. Illinois has had the law on the books for five years but has not enforced it. Not because the legislature is unwilling, but main because among other things, Muslims can't agree on a standardization of halal. Irony Ha. We get a law that caters specific to us, but our own divisiveness renders it inert.
