Eat LAYS Chips; Halal & Haram !!! I SAY LAY IT DOWN N TAKE IT OUT LAYS



Today I came across an interesting TV advertisement, showing singer turned religious guy, Junaid Jamshed. I did not believe, a multinational brand is selling CHIPS through JJ. Later I discovered that some of the people propagated that Lays are made in PIG Fat…whatever.

The advertisement reminded me about the story of Mongols, when Mongols were about to invade Iraq, the Iraqis were debating weather a CROW is Halal or Haram!!! (Halal (حلال, ḥalāl, Halaal) is an Arabic term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. It is the opposite of haraam)

Just look at MNCs advertisement, Lays is trying to convince the Pakistani society to buy Lays because its Halal and look at the Indian society they show their culture, music, dance in their creative yet captivating advertisements.

These advertisements tell volumes about each society.

I fear days may come, when LUX would be showing a girl wearing Hijab and convincing users that its HALAL and Pig Tallow has not been used in the process.

I remember during my daily interactions with various business entrepreneurs, most of the trading community or SME sector guys are deeply into religion (on surface) and most of them find modern banking, HARAM. Oh that reminds me various HALAL banking products are being launched all across Pakistan.

These same religious minded entrepreneurs evade taxes, lies, overcharge, black marketing, hoarding and all sort of un Islamic business means are used to maximize wealth. On the other hand they claim that material world is short and one should be caring and thinking about life hereafter.

One should also teach the hypocrite society that lying, tax evasion, hypocrisy, back biting, overcharging, black marketing etc all are HARAM.

World is moving faster unlike us busy in sorting out Halal and Haram.

Lays tried to counter ONE RUMOR and took all the FUN OUTTA JUNK FOOD MUNCHIES! I SAY LAY IT DOWN N TAKE IT OUT LAYS

yes indeed all above acts are not allowed , basically every religion deep down has one basic cause of interest and Islam mainly focuses on TAQWa that is to be always fearing from God and being on guard to protect emaan.
if junaid jamshed an ex singer comes in an ad to convince viewers against a slander campaign set against lays pakistan whats the harm in it....
