HMC Safeguards Consumers from incorrect Qurbanis
November 2011

Alhamdulillah by the Grace of the Almighty, HMC overlooked the highest levels of HMC certified Qurbanis on record this Eid.  Nadeem Adam, HMC Operations Manager said, “there has been an increase of over 47% from last year.  People are turning to HMC’s unique and comprehensive inspection based system to meet their important religious obligations with assurance”.

This safeguard means that Qurbanis are done after Eid Prayers, uniquely identified and sent to waiting consumers in the knowledge that checks were made on their behalf.

HMC issued important guidance produced by Scholars to all Abattoirs for the fulfilment of Qurbani this year. It stipulated the shariah laws that must be adhered to along with unique inking and markings under the full inspection of an independent HMC Inspector present on site during the production.

Cattle Rejected

A herd of cattle destined for Qurbani was rejected by HMC inspectors just prior to slaughter at one of the plants as the age of the animals were under two years and not permissible for Qurbani.  This shows the importance of independent monitoring said regional manager Asif, “we were asked to approve the slaughter of animals that did not meet the Shariah criteria. If the HMC inspector was not present, although this animal may have been slaughtered by a Muslim and it may have been non-stunned, this meat would have undoubtedly passed off as Qurbani assured meat when it clearly was not”.

HMC was the only certifying body that independently monitored all its Qurbanis and had its personnel present during slaughter.

May Allah accept all our sacrifices and help us to be sincere in our efforts to help the community. HMC requests all readers to continue to support HMC and we are grateful to our inspectors who worked during the three days of Eid so that the Qurbani requirements for our communities could be met.
