Politics India Chinese vaccine cannot be given to Muslims: Sunni ulema

As India awaits Covid-19 vaccine, Sunni Muslim scholars from Mumbai’s Raza Academy said that Chinese vaccine containing pork gelatin is “haram” for Muslims. The decision was taken after some media reports claimed that Chinese vaccine contains pork gelatin.

Raza Academy’s Secretary-General Saeed Noorie in a video statement urged the Indian government to not place an order for the Chinese vaccine which contains pork gelatin.

“For any vaccine which has been ordered or made in India, the government should show us the list of content so that we can make announcements regarding the use of the vaccine,” said Noorie.

Meanwhile, Swami Chakrapani Maharaj, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha president claimed that Covid-19 vaccine made from cow’s blood in America should not be used in India.

Calling it an international conspiracy to destroy the religion of Hindus, Swami Chakrapani said that Hindus could use a vaccine or medicine using cow urine or cow dung.

He further said that foreign companies must disclose the process of vaccine development so that people’s religion is not destroyed.

An Associated Press report says vaccines developed to prevent Covid-19 infection can be administered to Muslims in UAE even if they contain pork gelatin.

Vaccines containing pork gelatin permissible for Muslims: UAE

Sheikh Abdallah bin Bayyah, who heads the UAE Fatwa Council, the highest Islamic authority in the country, has said that the coronavirus vaccines would not be subject to Islam’s ban on pork-derived products because of the greater cause to “protect the human body”.

Pork gelatin used in vaccines is considered medicine and not food, the UAE Fatwa Council ruled. Muslims across the world have raised concerns over the use of porcine gelatin in COVID-19 vaccines.

Pharmaceutical companies use pork-derived gelatin in vaccines as a stabilizer to ensure they remain safe and effective during storage and transport.
