Union Minister Giriraj Singh Urges Bihar CM to Ban Sale of Halal-Certified Products

Union Rural Development Minister Giriraj Singh has called upon Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to prohibit the sale of “halal certified” products, terming it a “jihad” aimed at the “Islamisation of businesses.”

Singh, who represents Bihar’s Begusarai Lok Sabha seat, shared a copy of a letter he wrote to Kumar, urging him to follow the example set by the Yogi Adityanath government in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh, which recently banned the sale of halal-certified products.

In a video statement, Singh stated, “The sale of halal-certified products is akin to the Jizya tax that was imposed on non-Muslims in the medieval era. Previous governments of the Congress and its allies have put up with this because of vote bank concerns and politics of appeasement.” He further alleged that the unregulated sale of halal products poses a threat to Sanatan Dharma.

Singh argued, “Halal certification involves consecration in the name of the Quran, just like consecration through mantras in Hindu tradition. Unbridled sale of Halal products will pave the way for Sharia rule.” He accused the so-called “tukde tukde” gang of enabling the widespread availability of such products in Bihar.

Responding to Singh’s assertions, JD(U) chief spokesperson Neeraj Kumar accused the BJP of hypocrisy, particularly regarding beef consumption.

“The BJP claims to be the biggest custodian of Sanatan Dharma. Yet its own leaders in states like Uttar Pradesh are known to be the biggest exporters of beef. Such is their hypocrisy,” stated Kumar.
