Muslims in China fed pork

World Bulletin / News Desk

Police in Xi’an, the capital of China’s Shaanxi province, have seized more than 20 thousand kilograms of pork being sold off as halal beef products. The pork had been treated with chemicals such as paraffin wax and industrial salts to make it look like beef.

Taiwan's Want China Times reported that the factory sold between up to 2,000 kg to local markets. A police statement revealed that the factory processed the pork at night and sold it as beef the next day.

This news has infuriated many Muslims in the region who bought the meat believing it was halal. Islam forbids Muslims from eating pork and other non-halal food.

Scandals like this are not at all uncommon in China. Earlier this year the Medical Daily said that 904 people were arrested for "meat-related offences".

According to China's public security ministry. more than 22 meat products were found to have E. coli levels that "seriously exceeded standards".

All carnivorous animals by nature are forbidden hence we don't eat dogs cats birds of prey and others. Pig is a carnivore! A scavenger! Same as hyena's and wild dogs. Though today it's forced to eat non meat products to make it cheaper to produce and turn it to a vegeterian never the less the carnivorous genes in the DNA remain. By nature meat eaters eat vegetarian animals.
