Halal Sanitised: Health and Science in a Globalised Religious Market
Nøgleord: halal, London, Malays, Islam
ResuméThis article examines the sanitisation of halal in the modern scientific world, that is, how Malays in London understand and practise halal as part of modern discourses of meat/stunning, health, nutrition, purity, food scares, science and excess. From being an Islamic injunction in the Koran and the Sunna, halal both evokes and is evoked by a whole range of discourses. In other words, this article captures how halal sits uneasily in and between a plethora of powerful scientific, religious and political discourses that often overlap.
