The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, is considering implementing strict restrictions on the sale of halal-certified products.

The government is contemplating a statewide ban on the sale of these products due to recent incidents involving forged certificates provided to retailers.

A government official stated that there is a likelihood of imposing a ban on the sale of such items.

This decision follows a case registered by the Lucknow police against several organizations, including Halal India Private Limited, Jamiat Ullema Hind Halal Trust, Halal Council of India, and Jamiat Ullema, for exploiting religious sentiments and issuing fake halal certificates.
