Their Excellencies,

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Members of the World Muslim Consumers’ Organization (WMCO) are Muslim consumers from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Malaysia, Japan, USA, UK, France, Denmark, Kuwait, Palestine, India… It is also an umbrella organization affiliated with ASIDCOM (The France National Muslim Consumers Organization), APOCE (Algeria), Behalal.org (UK), Ikeethalal (Netherlands), ASEVE Foundation (Belgium), NewsHalal.com (Japan) and SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Maldives, Bhutan) that work to protect the Rights of Muslim consumers to meet their religious needs and requirements within the global market.

Unfortunately, we are continuing to see the rise of a strong and determined Islamophobic movement against Indian Muslims in India, which has even led to death (more than 28 Muslims, recently). A petition was launched on change.org to call for the protection of the religious minorities, specifically Muslims and Christians, and Dalits in India. Also, the Indian members of WMCO confirmed to us these bad situations. To summaries them, the petition states that:


Human rights violations which target religious minorities, specifically Muslims and Christians, and Dalits are occurring on a vast and horrific scale in India today.” “… Hindu supremacist gangs with links to the ruling party, or in some parts of India directly set up by the state, are the chief perpetrators of these abuses which are occurring unchecked.


Many examples of the types of violations are terrorism in nature, on the basis of religious extremism. In fact, Hindus terrorist groups argue their actions against Indian Muslims for the consumption of beef meat or the transportation of cows for slaughter. Yet, this excuse is not only against Human Rights but absolutely hypocritical because India is the biggest exporter of halal beef meat to Muslim countries and the main abattoirs of beef production are owned by Hindus.


Muslim consumers in OIC Muslim countries are not aware that they are funding the Indian meat and leather industries, whilst approximately 200 million Muslims in India are terrified and banned from rearing, transporting, slaughtering and consuming beef in their own country. We seek your understanding of this situation in order to help in the protection of Religious Minorities’ Rights in India, by labelling the origin of the Indian meat so that the Muslim consumers can buy meat in full knowledge of the facts. Also, we call you to engage negotiation with the Indian authorities, in order to obtain warranties of protection for Muslims in India. It is needed to promptly urge India to take just and through measures to protect Human Rights and religious freedom of Muslims in India and bring to justice all of those who are killing, raping and torturing Muslims. Of course, in this context, the call for a ban of Indian meat import into the OIC countries remains an efficient tool to safeguard our brothers and sisters in India. Finally, inviting Indian Muslims and victims’ families to speak at the OIC meetings to brief about the situation would be a strong Human gesture.
