Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca have issued notices stating that their vaccine does not use pork gelatin.

While Corona is stirred all over the world, some Muslim countries have questioned its vaccine. Debate has started in these Islamic countries as to whether Islamic law approves the use of the Kovid-19 vaccine?

The manufacturing process of the vaccine is behind this whole debate. Gelatin from pork is used to stabilize the vaccine. Through this, the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine is maintained in storage and transportation. According to the news agency AP report, now the same thing is knocking the Islamic countries. They say that pork and everything made from it are banned in Islam. It is considered haraam. Therefore, a vaccine made using it is also forbidden according to Islamic law.

Indonesia asks for a Halal certificate

Indonesia, the Muslim-populated country, is most concerned about the use of pork in the vaccine. The Indonesian government has decided to allow the use of the corona vaccine only after halal certification. This means that companies must clarify that pork gelatin is not used in the preparation of the vaccine.

Companies claim pork free vaccine
Many companies have claimed to develop a vaccine without using pork-free ie pig gelatin. Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca have issued notices stating that their vaccine did not use pork gelatin. These companies have said that everyone can use the vaccine.

Why is this discussion on the vaccine?
Actually, such discussion started in October itself. When the Indonesian diplomat and Islamic cleric arrived in China to discuss the Corona vaccine. The group reached the Indonesian public with the intention of finalizing the vaccine deal. After getting information about the methods of preparing the vaccine here, the religious leaders started questioning it.

What do the experts say?

  • Dr. Salman Waqar, General Secretary of the British Islamic Medical Association, says that there is confusion about the use of the vaccine in many religious communities, apart from Jews and Muslims. The use of products made from pork is considered religiously impure.
  • Dr. Harnur Rashid, Associate Professor at Sydney University, says that there has been a consensus on the vaccine made using gelatin. It is acceptable under Islamic law. If the vaccine is not used, people will suffer a lot.
  • Rabbi David Stave, president of Israel’s Rabbani organization ‘Zohar’, is in favor of the vaccine. They say that in Jewish law, eating pork or its use can only be done without it. If it is given as an injection in a disease and is not being eaten, then it is fine. it is no problem.
