Fish&Chips is not only multicultural but it is also multi-faith, as these delightful students of a Perth Islamic college showed at Kailis in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour today.

They’re just normal kids in school uniform enjoying one of the delights all kids love to eat.

If only Pauline Hanson had realised she was selling halal food when she had her Fish&Chips shop.

    I disagree with this Roel, as any fish and chip shop selling pawns, squid, crab, octopus, this isn’t going to be halal necessarily
    Even shark is questionable as its feeds on anything even rubbish
    Then there is the old Aussie favourite, dim sum which has pork, popular in Fish & Chips shops in those days.
    Of course there was the chiko roll, (non halal meat) which featured the Chiko Chicks, ads and posters where they were sold.

    Preparing and cooking these items would certainly contaminate any work space far to much to call it Halal for all the other dishes

    Not exactly sharia

    Then of course there is the cooking medium which has been popular in this era and many still do use it, tallow which is rendered beef fat.

    So allowing that the french fries are not coated in any flavor enhancements they may or not be halal, the oil even some vegetable base are given beef or pork flavoring.

    I agree its multicultural but multi faith, it leaves out Muslims, Jews, most Buddhists, Hindus and even some vegetarians for example cant eat potatoes??

    Its hard enough in restaurants to get something that is nut free, this issue is a little more complex.

    Roel, you are spot on pointing out food like Fisn’n’Chips qualifies as being Halal for people who follow the Islamic faith, like so many other foods we all enjoy, BUT you clearly miss the point, people in the main object to the extortionate fees that companies pay for Halal Certification that serves no purpose with regards to content or health issues yet is passed on to all consumers.

    Pauline Hanson is a poor example as you know she represents a minority, though still larger in this country than those who follow Islam.

    Yes I do too Carl. Did not want to zoom in on any of the kids though, but it looked cute.
