The Muslim Judicial Council [MJC], Afro-Middle East Centre [AMEC] and the Egyptian Community of South Africa [ECOSA] thus invites the community to a series of programs where a senior delegation of the Muslim Brotherhood will provide information on the impact the military coup has had on the current social and political climate. The delegation led by the Secretary General Mahmoud Hussein who is accompanied by Yehia Hamed, Minister of Investments, Egyptian Government under President Morsi, Ehab Sheha, Founder of Al-Asala Party and Sr Sumaya Mahmood will discuss circumstances surrounding the July 2013 coup and what the possible future of Egypt might look like.

Assalaamu alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh

 

The M.J.C. Halaal Trust received several calls and emails from concerned Muslims regarding the label displaying on the “Grabouw Boerewors” Sausage found at the Halaal Butchery at Checkers Supermarket Kenilworth Centre.  The MJC Halaal Trust wishes to inform the   Muslim public that with regards to the enquiry about the  unfortunate  mislabelling of a Halaal Sausage at Checkers Supermarket based at Kenilworth Centre, the product is most definitely Halaal and there is no component of non-halaal in this sausage marketed as "Grabouw Boerewors".We have deep understanding for the concerns expressed by Muslim consumers with Checkers regarding the Halaal status of the "Grabouw Boerewors" label displaying the presence of pork ingredient (27%) on the Halaal certified Sausages. The problem is due to staff members mistakenly  using the wrong non-halaal label on the Halaal Sausage product.We have raised the concerns  with Checkers  based at Kenilworth Centre and as a result of the complaints, the Regional Manager  met with and consulted with our representative and a procedure was put in place as to permanently remedy this occurring problem. We have in addition  instructed our in-house monitors to be more  vigilant as to ensure that such a problem does not occur again.We trust that this information provide some insight and clarity  on this matter.

Jazaakallah
