#BoycottMcDonalds trends after company says “all our restaurants have Halal certificates”

The halal and jhatka meat row has now seemed to hit McDonalds India now. The company is receiving backlash on Twitter over the debate of halal and jhatka meat being served in Indian restaurants.

Recently, a Twitter user asked McDonalds India whether restaurants in India have a halal certificate.

The company replied to the query saying that all their restaurants in India have a halal certificate and that the meat they use is of the highest quality.

Their reply got instant criticism from Twitter for serving halal meat and declaring it in its restaurant. Soon after hashtag BoycottMcDonalds started trending online; with people calling out McDonald’s for serving halal meat in a non-Muslim majority country.

Here’s how they reacted

For the uninitiated, Halal meat is associated with Islamic dietary laws, and meat processed and prepared according to the requirements. Jhatka, on the other hand, is the meat from an animal killed instantaneously and is in accordance with the animal slaughter kind followed in Hinduism and Sikhism.
