ISIL declares meat products coming from Turkey ‘haram’
ISTANBULThe Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has said meat products in Turkey are “haram,” in an online magazine published by the terrorist organization.
The cutting process of the meat products coming from Turkey became controversial primarily because of suspicions on the moral eligibility of the butcher, ISIL said in a so-called “Fatwa on Meat Products Coming From Turkey” in the first issue of Konstantiniyye, an online Turkish magazine propagandizing on the behalf of ISIL.
“There are reservations about the processing of meat products coming from Turkey. Firstly, it remains unclear whether the one doing this job is morally eligible for cutting meat. Secondly, most people in Turkey are apostates. These are reasons why we call meat products coming from Turkey ‘haram,’” ISIL said when asked on the fatwa, citing haram, an Arabic term used for anything forbidden in Islamic law.
