FAKE News at the NZ Herald about Halal activist Syeda Fouzia.

Syeda Fouzia says there aren’t enough Halal fast food options in New Zealand.

In a blatant example of Fake news, the NZ Herald has reported the racial abuse of Kiwi Muslim activist Syeda Fouzia Tuesday’s face of the day.?The evidence the article provides of racial abuse is non-existent. The NZ Herald article is straight out of the Muslim activist handbook.

Syeda Fouzia who is from the UK is following the exact same pattern used by activists there to get fast food producers to submit to the Sharia. It is the same pattern used in America, France and Canada.The first step is to get the media to run a story where the nice Muslim lady explains how it would be so easy to make KFC Halal and how it wouldn’t inconvenience non-Muslims at all.

This, of course, is a total fabrication as in the UK and America and elsewhere once a fast food operator goes Halal bacon products are taken off the menu even if initially the meat is cooked and prepared separately.

A diner was left fuming after a KFC restaurant took his favourite meal off the menu because it breached their new halal regulations.

Alan Phillips was told he would have to travel five miles to another branch if he wanted the Big Daddy, a chicken burger, topped with bacon, cheese and salad.

The branch, in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is one of 86 KFC restaurants which is running trials of a scheme where they sell nothing other than halal meat.


Kiwi activist Syeda Fouzia would be well aware of that fact as the above quote is from an article published back in 2010 in the UK. The goal, of course, is to get the non-Muslim host country to accept the small step of providing Halal food in some of its restaurants. To get compliance it is important to assure the population that it won’t affect them at all to make this concession for a tiny percentage of the population. In fact, it will be a very progressive and tolerant thing to do showing that they believe in diversity. At least, that is how the first step is sold to the Kafir population.

Step two is the second article only days later which is a victimhood tale of how the poor Muslim campaigner has been ” abused” by racist Kiwis who do not want the Sharia gaining a toehold inside their community.

Once again I have to question whether or not the MSM actually understand the meaning of the words racial abuse. The racial abuse examples provided by the article are as follows:

  1. Fouzia revealed she has been told to “go back to your own country”, and another person said New Zealand runs the risk of being placed under “Sharia law”.
  2. David Wardly – one of the strongest critics of the online campaign – said halal certification was a strategy for Muslims to “ram their religion” down Kiwis’ throats.
  3. Other critics have told Fouzia and those in support of the campaign to “go home”.
  4. “We fit in with your rules in your countries, you fit in with the rules and ways of New Zealand. Your choice, go home or adjust,” one person wrote on social media.
  5. “Don’t like how things are done in NZ and our culture then don’t come here,” a woman commented.
  6. “‘I think it is so rude to go to another country and expect them to change their way of doing things to fit your beliefs and what you have in your country.”

However, Fouzia told Fairfax she was unfazed by the racial abuse and criticism.

What racist abuse? Telling someone to go back to their country is not racist abuse. If she wants Halal food then the best place for it is a Muslim country. Despite none of the quotes containing actual racial abuse the article described the comments as “racist and abusive.” Maybe I need stronger reading glasses but I can’t see any abuse in those comments can you?

Once again the second article pushed the false narrative that Halal KFC would not be a problem.

[…] Auckland Muslim Syeda Fouzia, who helped start the campaign “We Want Halal KFCs Back In New Zealand”, believes delivering halal food “is not that difficult”.

Not difficult for who exactly? I can assure Syeda Fouzia that turning certain KFC’s bacon free will not go down well in South Auckland or indeed anywhere in New Zealand where Muslims are still in the minority.

“We knew some people won’t like the idea of halal KFC. To the haters I just want to say ‘bless you and bless your family’,” she said.

It is all part of the activist narrative to label anyone who disagrees with their aims haters and racists. None of the comments quoted in the article reveals hate or racism. It is Fake news and the NZ Herald are playing the role of patsies in this activist’s strategy to lobby KFC.

“We are not asking for the whole supply chain to change, just certain [halal] days in certain branches would be fine.”

That’s right, slowly, slowly catchee monkey. One small step at a time.

President of Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand, Hazim Arafeh, explained that New Zealand’s halal practices were in line with the Animal Welfare Code.

“In Islam an animal must not suffer or be sacrificed in front of other animals,” he told Fairfax.

That is more fake news. Under Islamic law, animals are slaughtered with cruelty. The only reason that doesn’t happen in New Zealand is our animal welfare laws insist that the animal is stunned unconscious before its throat is cut.

“Halal certification is not about bringing Sharia law in to New Zealand, it exists because New Zealand wants to export to Muslim countries.”

Well, that is certainly the line that New Zealand has been sold and none of our politicians want to think too hard about motives when there is all that lucrative Muslim export money to be gained.

Despite public support for the move, KFC has no plans to include halal options at its chains.

A spokesperson for the brand said they had explored it in 2001 and were not looking to make the move permanent.

“We appreciate their request, however the issues relating to us being able to certify halal product for customers remain,” a KFC spokesperson said.

“We have no plans to re-introduce halal in New Zealand.”

No plans yet. Watch this space as the articles and the lobbying continue.
