The halal racket — growing to include everything. Companies must pay the jizya to Islamic companies to certify their products are halal. Like I said – a growing racket. Power and money. And now Panasonic and Sharp have fallen into the abyss.
Halal certifications: for products.
Panasonic and Sharp plants go Sharia-compliant to produce products that meet halal standards
The principle is always and everywhere the same: in Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to Islamic sensibilities. And in non-Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to Islamic sensibilities.

Though certification screeners found no problems with Panasonic’s home appliance parts at its plant in Hikone, Shiga Prefecture, they asked the company to review certain manufacturing procedures.
To conform to standards considered halal, “workers must remove their wristwatches because (according to Islamic law) they could be regarded as unpure,” a Panasonic representative said.
This is done to ensure any traces of pork or alcohol that workers may have come in contact with outside the plant are not transferred to products being manufactured.
Panasonic introduced a halal production line at its Hikone plant and carefully examined the ingredients of gloves and brushes to confirm they were not derived from pork products.
The company also replaced the plant’s cleaning tools and asked staff to wash their hands seven times a day to abide by Islamic law, using a halal cleaning agent….
