Small and Medium-Scale Entrepreneurs Organisation of Malaysia (Ikhlas) wants the halal certification given to companies that were contributing to Israel revoked.
Ikhlas president Mohd Ridzuan Abdullah has urged the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) to do so, while a memorandum would also be submitted to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
He said the matter should be given serious attention and the support for Gaza and Palestine should be stronger.
“We understand that there are giant corporations operating in Malaysia which are channelling huge amounts of funds to Israel.
“Why should we give them halal certification? There’s no need. We urge Jakim to revoke it,” he said today.
Mohd Ridzuan also said that a parliamentary sitting should be held to discuss the existence of multi-national corporations controlled by the Jews and take necessary action against them.
“Even (International Trade and Industry Minister) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed admitted that there were multi-national corporations that were supplying our country’s products to Israel,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ikhlas will be distributing one million leaflets on the boycott of Israeli products throughout the country, including Sabah and Sarawak, from this Friday.
The campaign, according to Mohd Ridzuan, aims to encourage people to boycott selected products and assert pressure on restaurant operators that were using products by companies that channel funds to the Zionist regime.
