Baru baru ni Malaysia dikejutkan isu coklat Cadbury dicemari DNA babi. Well, for me it was negligence by the manufacturer and authorities and to be blamed was the manufacturer in particular. The manufacturer seems insensitive about the HALAL issue to Muslims. I believed they are aware but just being ignorance as long as they could make good money. While in the other hand the authorities has less integration amongst the respective Jabatan. For example how can MOH which did the lab research or lab test on the chocolate aware on the existence of the non HALAL ingredients while on the other hand, JAKIM who responsible on the issuance of HALAL certification said otherwise. It was really confusing. Does the HALAL certification issued before the lab test was done or was it due to undeclared ingredient on reproduction of certified HALAL product?. The question is how does the monitoring and inspection was done over the certified HALAL product upon reproduction?. I believed the respective jabatans should have a clear guidelines and processes to monitor the HALAL certification , for example periodic inspection at the factory by the respective jabatans e.g MOH and JAKIM. The application of ISO practice may resolve the issue as by practicing ISO everyone involve with the issuance of the certification are required to follow the integrated processes.
Another issue that catched my attention was where some people who claimed they are religious were insensitive about how to keep good image of a real Muslims when they throw their opinion like they have never read books or never learn from the religious teacher. They thought others have no brain to think or they just want to show how shallow are their knowledge about Islam. I wish to call upon all our Muslims brothers and sisters to think before you say something. it may your personal opinion but it may reflects and affects to the whole community.
Islam is a beautiful way of life, full of positive action, energy and spirits. But human with all negativities has destroyed the beauty of Islam.
Did you realize how chocolate has brought different perspective of Muslims to the eyes of the world?
