KUALA LUMPUR, March 6 (Bernama) — The Selangor Islamic Council (MAIS) decision banning halal logos issued by private companies is correct and to ensure that they adhere to Islamic law.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom said this was because the issuance of halal logos by the companies had raised doubts among Muslims.

“Companies that did not follow procedures fixed by the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) and state islamic councils will encourage others to do the same,” he said at the 5th convocation of Kolej Islam Antarabangsa, Gombak near here Saturday.

Jamil was commenting on the Mais decision to ban halal logos issued by six companies to restaurants, cafes, hotels and food courts in Selangor.

The six companies are Bahtera Lagenda Sdn Bhd, Islamic Food and Research Council (IFRC), SAS-H Consultancy, Perak Religious Officers Association, Halal Food Council S.E.A and IFANCA International.
