SC refrains UP Govt from taking coercive action against Halal & Jamiat office bearers

SC refrains UP Govt from taking coercive action against Halal & Jamiat office bearers

New Delhi, Feb 12 (UNI) The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Uttar Pradesh Government not to take any coercive action against Halal India and Jamiat Ulama-e-Maharashtra office bearers in the Halal Products Ban case till further orders.

A Bench of Justice BR Gavai and Justice Sandeep Mehta granted interim protection to the petitioners and directed the UP Government not to take coercive action against Halal India and Jamiat Ulama-e-Maharashtra office bearers.

Earlier, such protection was granted to the Jamiat chief Mahmood Madani and other office-bearers of the trust from any coercive action.
The Court agreed to hear the writ petition filed under Article 32 of the Constitution by Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind Halal Trust. In the meanwhile it has directed the government not to take any coercive action against the parties.
Last year in November, the State of Uttar Pradesh banned the production, storage, distribution, and sale of halal-certified products in the state. It however, exempted exports from the embargo. Halal certification is a guarantee that the product is permissible by Islamic law and is unadulterated, meaning no Haram product is used.

The petitioners contend that the ban violates citizens' fundamental rights and undermines established certification processes, arguing that it is a misconceived action causing chaos for retailers and affecting legitimate trade practices.
The petition was filed by Advocate on Record Mr. Ejaz Maqbool on behalf of Tamil Nadu-based company Halal India Private Limited through its Managing Director Mohamed Jinna and Director Mujakkirullch and Jamiat Ulama-e-Maharashtra office bearers.
