If a vegan complains that their widely used product is misrepresented and complains with other vegan associations about the product, do we say that it’s wrong and stupid for them to complain because there are other serious crimes like murder elsewhere?
No, right? Similarly to a Jew who complains of a misrepresented kosher meat. You cannot say to the Jew why are you complaining since there are so many Jews who commit worse heinous crime like murder rape and torture in other parts of the world. It’s an absurd argument isn’t it?
Now this style of “comparison argument” always happen whenever Muslims complain about an issue. But this seldom happen to any other groups. So a Muslim has no valid claim on a misrepresentation of halal food unless he or she condemns every other crimes ke? This is a false logic. In fact this kind of argument is racist and bigoted. It is made with a malicious intent to belittle a valid claim by Muslims. We should tell them off that they are racists and bigots.
Ps: I have no issue if one wants to condemn certain NGOs that posit an extreme position of “changing their blood”. But it is wrong to belittle and deny Muslims in general of their right to complain about haram food (which they themselves directly eat) until the Muslims complain about all other serious crimes. This is ridiculous.
PS: this issue may be moot now in view of MOH’s clarification, but the statements criticizing Muslims sensitivities are still coming in. It’s just too many of late that needs to be replied.
