They have accused KFC of duping customers by serving non-Halal chicken or ‘Jhatka’ chicken using fake Halal certificates.

Reports suggest that in an independent investigation carried out by Bhopal based journalist Anam Ibrahim, he had asked a KFC outlet in DB Mall, Bhopal about the chicken being Halal or not. In response he was shown a photocopy of a halal certificate issued by Mufti Anwar Khan of Mumbai to Venky’s Company.

On enquiring with Venky’s company, they informed him clearly that their tie-up with KFC has ended three years ago. When contacted, Mufti Anwar Khan in Mumbai told that he had given halal certificate to Venky’s Company of Chennai which slaughters 1000 chicken in Pune daily.

On further enquiry Ibrahim claimed that the company is procuring non-halal chicken from Godrej Company in Mumbai.

Halal is Arabic for permissible. Halal food is that which adheres to Islamic law, as defined in the Koran. The Islamic form of slaughtering animals involves killing through a cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe. Following the cut all blood is drained from the carcass. During the process, a Muslim will recite a dedication, known as tasmiya or shahada.

However, a KFC spokesperson denied the charges vehemently, saying, “KFC holds the highest respect for the law of the land and complies with all government rules and regulations. These accusations are baseless and seem to be driven with malicious intent to harm our brand.”

“We serve chicken sourced from reputed Indian suppliers like Venky’s and Godrej. We are always willing to provide consumers any clarifications they may require on the food served in our restaurants. We will be approaching the authorities to investigate this false propaganda and take appropriate action against those spreading misinformation,” the spokesperson said.
