Chinese vaccine declared as halal in Indonesia
Indonesian Ulama Council, Indonesia’s top Islamic body, said last week that the Kovid-19 vaccine is halal and compatible with Muslims’ use. Let us tell you that after the news of the use of gelatin of pork (pork) in the coronavirus vaccine, there is a debate in many Muslim countries around the world.
Why there is a ruckus in the Muslim countries on the vaccine?
Pork gelatin is commonly used in vaccines, and this has led to a growing concern among Muslims about vaccination. The use of products made from pork is considered forbidden under Islamic law. According to the report, gelatin made from pork bone, fat, or leather is used to protect a vaccine for a long time. Muslims suspect that vaccine-making companies have also used it in their products.
