MUHAMMADIYAH.OR.ID, JAKARTA – Mahmoud Tatari, the General Manager of Halal Control GmbH of Germany, visited the Muhammadiyah Office of Jakarta on Thursday (September 14), aiming to establish a transparent and integrity-focused halal industry access system.
The Chairman of Muhammadiyah, Anwar Abbas, mentioned that the Halal Center and Muhammadiyah share the same mission, creating a society with integrity and excellence due to implementing Islamic values.
“Tatari aspires to foster transparency on a global scale, aligning with Islamic teachings. This resonates with Muhammadiyah’s mission of creating a genuinely Islamic society,” said Anwar Abbas.
Anwar Abbas mentioned that there might likely be a future collaboration between the Halal Control GmbH of Germany and Muhammadiyah since both share concerns about the halal industry and the welfare of Muslims.
“It is necessary to have high-quality work and competence to create a society with good morals which will build integrity and trust, paving the way for cooperation.
Besides ensuring the halal status of food, beverages, and medicines, Tatari highlighted the importance of extending these halal-haram principles to encompass broader aspects, mainly focusing on Muslim ethics.
By emphasizing the ethical value of halal products, Muslims can contribute positively to their communities.
“Furthermore, I saw Tatari’s commitment to fighting corruption, a prevalent issue in Indonesia. This commitment aligns with Muhammadiyah’s mission of promoting integrity and ethical conduct,” said Anwar Abbas.
