Q. For how long is a man required to support his children?
A. The father has to maintain his children until they are able to support themselves. As far as daughters are concerned, he has to support them until they are married.
Q. Is it permissible to eat blue whale meat?
A. Blue whale and all sea animals besides fish are haraam in terms of the Hanafi Math-hab. Whales are mammals. They are not fish, hence are haraam.
“Same sex marriages” – What is the origin of this abomination? It has a history, and it is said that ‘history repeats itself’. Hadhrat Kalbi (rahmatullah alayh) narrated that the first being to commit homosexuality was shaitaan. This confirms that homosexuality is pure satanism.
Shaitaan appeared in the form of a handsome lad to the people of the earth. With his wiles and snares he lured them to himself. He convinced them to ‘marry’ him. Males ‘married’ him. This was the origin of ‘same sex marriages’ which the enlightened constitution of South Africa enshrines.
Allah Ta’ala then sent Nabi Lut (alayhis salaam) to admonish these slaves of shaitaan. When the calls of Nabi Lut (alayhis salaam) fell on deaf ears, the nation of Nabi Lut (alayhis salaam) was utterly destroyed by showers of stones from the heavens. Each stone had inscribed on it the name of the miscreant whom it had to strike. There were five towns which were destroyed. The largest was Sodom which had a population of 400,000. ‘History repeating itself’ is a historic principle which knows of no exceptions.
PROCESSED CARRION CHICKENS PUMPED WITH WATER – BEEF AND PORK USED TO HOLD THE WATER
(The Consumer Editor,
Chicken fillets ‘secretly pumped up with water’ to increase weight
Chicken served in restaurants, hospitals and schools is still being pumped up secretly with water and proteins to increase its size and weight, The Times has learnt.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has begun an inquiry into the preparation of 63,000 tons of poultry that were imported from the Netherlands in response to the discovery by trading standards officers. This will put new pressure on caterers to reveal whether the chicken on their menus is bloated with liquid and proteins.
It is not illegal to add water to chicken but under European Union rules consumers must be told if water has been added.
The Trading Standards Institute said that it was not prepared to let caterers mislead customers.
“Catering establishments have a legal obligation to give a description on a menu that should not be false or misleading,” David Pickering, a spokesman for the institute, said. “If someone is selling chicken with added water as chicken, that is a fraud because people are paying chicken prices for water and a product that does not taste any good. If the Dutch authorities and the EU decide not to take this seriously, we will have to look to do more enforcement in this country.”
An examination of frozen chicken fillets sold in the North of England found that some products imported from the Netherlands contained as much as 35 per cent water even though the meat content was described as 80 per cent. The suspected chicken was destined for the catering industry, and is believed to have been used in takeaway restaurants, care homes and canteens.
The practice of bulking up meat with liquid was exposed four years ago by the FSA. Consumers believed that they were buying pure chicken but most of the meat contained water. Some of the processing companies also used beef and pork proteins to hold in the water.
The EU agreed only that products should be labelled “chicken with water” and that packs should declare whether beef or pork protein had been added. Consumers of catering trade produce, however, never get to see these labels and menus rarely declare if chicken has added water.
Manufacturers have also been criticised for adding hydrolysed chicken protein, which is extracted from parts of the bird not used for food, such as skin, bone, and feathers.
The FSA is discussing whether to step up inspection of chicken products at ports and to order a wider survey of chicken on sale to the catering trade…
Chris Huhne, the Liberal Democrats’ spokesman on food, is to raise questions in Parliament about the sale of “plastic chicken”.
Sue Davies, of Which, the consumer organisation, was shocked to learn that “plastic chicken” was still in circulation. “This is deliberately misleading consumers and needs to be sorted out and stopped. People will be rightly disgusted to think what they are being served up when they think it is chicken.”
THESE ARE THE HARAAM, DISEASED, ROTTEN, CANCER-PRODUCING PLASTIC CHICKENS CERTIFIED ‘HALAAL’ BY SHAITAAN’S HALAALIZING OUTFITS.
Q. Are Candyland marshmallows which contain Pakistani gelatine halaal? There is a SANHA halaal logo on the wrapper.
A. The Candyland marsmallows are not halaal. Pakistan gelatine is not halaal. It was reliably established that when animals are slaughtered in municipal abattoirs in Pakistan, the slaughterers who are extremely irreligious, do not recite Bismillaah. In addition, Pakistan imports gelatine and other ingredients from kuffaar countries.
Pakistan has become notorious for carrion and diseased foods. Besides gelatine, several other ingredients listed on the wrapper are not halaal. Artificial colours and artificial flavours are generally derived from alcoholic concentrates. Tartrazine is a poison. It causes serious illness in the long term, and no one will know what was the original cause of the disease. The physical, moral and spiritual states of impurity of Pakistan are so terrible, that it will be appropriate to rename the country Napaakistan (the Impure Land).
Almost all sweets and chocolates contain haraam and doubtful ingredients. It is best to abstain. Never be misled by ‘halaal’ logos’ appearing on the wrappers. These halaalizing outfits are so unscrupulous that they halaalize carrion just for the sake of the money. It is difficult to believe that they are Muslim. They are rotten to the core – more rotten than the rotten, diseased carrion chickens they halaalize.

78 percent of Pakistani children with polio were given polio vaccines

(NaturalNews) In the last year, as Pakistan has lost favor with the US and UNICEF, polio virus has paralyzed increasing numbers of Pakistani youth, casting doubt on the good intentions of those who fight polio. To make matters worse, most of the new cases have occurred in children already vaccinated. Is the US attempting to fight Pakistan by tainting inoculation doses?
The medical data suggests that the vaccine has changed in its efficacy against the disease. Last year, there were 136 cases of infected youth, and 107 of these had been administered multiple polio vaccinations. These figures are the largest the Polio Global Eradication Initiative has seen since 2006, despite heavy treatment in the most affected areas, South Punjab and the Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA).
Even the more peaceful provinces have suffered. As reported by the Pakistan Daily times, there were 10 cases of polio in Sindh province in the first four months of the year. The article morbidly notes each of the cases, citing the children’s names and the number of vaccinations they had received before the onset of polio virus: “Mohammad Asif, aged 40 months with all his limbs affected… was administered oral anti polio vaccine (OPV) four times… The three and a half years old Ameera… had one of her arms and legs paralyzed… Ameera was first of the confirmed cases of polio during the current year.”
As one might imagine, Pakistani citizens are beginning to suspect foul play. Dr. Mazhar Khamisani, a manager of the health department in Sindh has noted that he has seen Pakistani parents begin to refuse treatment and do so on repeated occasions. And how could we, when confronted with the facts, ask them to do otherwise?
The type of polio vaccine administered may be a significant cause of the problem. There are two main types of polio vaccine, Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV) and Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV). The first of these uses dead cells of poliomyelitis. IPV was developed by Jonas Salk before being disseminated throughout the US in the 1950s, to quell the outbreak that was then infecting roughly 22,000 American children each year. Within 20 years, polio was all but forgotten in America.
However, The Polio Global Eradication Initiative chooses to use the second type, Oral Polio Vaccine. OPV was developed by Albert Sabin and runs the virus through a number of animals in order to weaken the strain rather than kill it. The weakened strain is then injected into children, whose immune systems are strong enough to defeat the infection. It is easy to see how treatment could backfire, in cases when the strain has not been weakened enough for human contact.
Despite the fact that it was not widely disseminated in the US, possibly because of the dangers associated with its use, OPV is the vaccine of choice in countries like Pakistan because, soon after vaccination, weakened virus can be found in children’s fecal matter. Immunity can then spread to communal water sources and increase immunity for greater portions of the population. So even if parents refuse OPV treatment, their children may still receive it indirectly through the drinking water.
Historically, there have been cases of outbreak when a weakened strain becomes strong enough to infect rather than immunize. In these cases, OPV is typically replaced by IPV because it is no longer considered safe. But OPV is still the vaccine of choice in Pakistan, even as it continues to prove its potency to the Polio Global Eradication Initiative. Why?
One explanation is that researchers have not collected enough data yet to say with certainty whether the vaccine is causing the outbreak. But how much longer will this go on?
It is equally plausible that the vaccine is not being handled properly. If the requisite temperature is not maintained, the vaccine can be rendered completely ineffectual. In remote areas, where power can be disrupted for hours and even days, the OPV treatments may have exceeded their temperature requirements and consequently lost their usefulness from temperature fluctuations. But surely, medical practitioners would know if their vaccine had potentially been compromised.
Unfortunately, both of these possibilities point to some kind of negligence. Either the doctors administering treatment are aware that their vaccine may not have the capacity to immunize their patients, or the people in charge are disseminating harmful vaccinations, then playing the victim to the ‘inconclusiveness of the data’ when it is clear that something has gone awry.
The Polio Global Eradication Initiative receives the majority of its funding through UNICEF and the US, both of which are beginning to look at Pakistan as an enemy, rather than a friend. Are political relations trickling down to the medical practitioners who are supposedly fighting a disease, not a country?
