A woman named Smt Thushara opened first ever non-Halal restaurant in Kerala's Ernakulam district. Outside her restaurant, she placed a poster on which 'No Halal' is written.
In a video, Smt Thushara revealed that many Muslims have taken offence to her idea of running a non-halal restaurant since the opening. "Muslims keep saying that it is not correct. Whenever Hindus start any business, Muslims try to intervene", Smt Thushara said.
Muslim men can only perform halal. Thus, non-Muslims are automatically denied employment at a Halal firm. Guidelines are available at the official website of a certification authority of Halal in India, which makes it clear that non-Muslim employees cannot be employed in any part of the slaughtering process.
