Kiwis reject halal racket; NZ Herald journaille promptly calls them “racist”

‘Ramming Islam down Kiwi throats’: KFC halal campaigner “racially abused”

A halal racket promoting hijabee claims she’s a victim of her own racket, because the infidels reject it:

A woman who is campaigning for KFC to introduce halal meat has copped a raft of racist and abusive comments.

Auckland Muslim Syeda Fouzia, who helped start the campaign “We Want Halal KFCs Back In New Zealand”, believes delivering halal food “is not that difficult”.

However, her views have met a backlash after she received a barrage of hate mail.

Fouzia revealed she has been told to “go back to your own country”, and another person said New Zealand runs the risk of being placed under “Sharia law”.

Islam is not a race. STOP promoting the Islamic agenda by conflating Islam with race and thereby labelling opponents of the Islamic expansion project as “racists”. This is not about skin colour!

David Wardly – one of the strongest critics of the online campaign – said halal certification was a strategy for Muslims to “ram their religion” down Kiwis’ throats.

“We fit in with your rules in your countries, you fit in with the rules and ways of New Zealand. Your choice, go home or adjust,” one person wrote on social media.

“Don’t like how things are done in NZ and our culture then don’t come here,” a woman commented.

“‘I think it is so rude to go to another country and expect them to change their way of doing things to fit your beliefs and what you have in your country.”

However, Fouzia told Fairfax she was unfazed by the racial abuse and criticism.

“We knew some people won’t like the idea of halal KFC. To the haters I just want to say ‘bless you and bless your family’,” she said.

“We are not asking for the whole supply chain to change, just certain [halal] days in certain branches would be fine.”

President of Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand, Hazim Arafeh, explained that New Zealand’s halal practices were in line with the Animal Welfare Code.

“In Islam an animal must not suffer or be sacrificed in front of other animals,” he told Fairfax.

“Halal certification is not about bringing Sharia law in to New Zealand, it exists because New Zealand wants to export to Muslim countries.”

Despite public support for the move, KFC has no plans to include halal options at its chains.

A spokesperson for the brand said they had explored it in 2001 and were not looking to make the move permanent.

“We appreciate their request, however the issues relating to us being able to certify halal product for customers remain,” a KFC spokesperson said.

“We have no plans to re-introduce halal in New Zealand.”

  1. No matter how often it is repeated, Islam is not a race so those against Islam are not being racist. Being racist seems to be less acceptable than being a murderer or rapist. If you are a Muslim, murder and rape are just cultural expressions that need to be tolerated by the infidel victims.

  2. Thanks so much for writing this up sheik. As I understand it , the female NZ KFC manager has no intentions of introducing a halal option. Good for her. Many muslims in NZ are fat enough anyway without eating KFC.
