"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Total rubbish someone added to the Halal article on Wikipedia:

Islam has prohibited blood of any type, because scientific studies have proved that a chemical analysis of blood shows that it contains an abundance of uric acid, a chemical substance which can be injurious to human health. The toxic nature of uric acid, in the human being is also relevant in this matter. It is excreted as a waste product and in fact about 98% of the body's uric acid is extracted from the blood by the kidneys and removed through urination.

== Reasons Against Criticism ==

In Islam, the wielder of the knife, whilst taking the name of the Almighty, makes an incision through the jugular veins, leaving all other veins and organs intact, this causes the death of the animal by a total loss of blood from the body, rather than an injury to any vital organ. Were the organs, example the heart, the liver, or the brain crippled or damaged, the animal could die immediately and its blood would congeal in its veins and would eventually permeate the flesh. This implies that the animal flesh would be permeated and contaminated with uric acid and therefore very poisonous; which is now being realized by modern dietitians.

Actually, apart from the Quran prohibiting the consumption of pork bacon (pig flesh); in fact the Bible too in Leviticus chapter 11,verse 8, regarding swine it says,

"of their flesh (of the swine another name for pig)shall you not eat, and of their carcass you shall not touch; they are " unclean to you.""

Going further, a pig cannot be slaughtered at the neck for it does not have a neck; that is according to its natural anatomy. A Muslim reasons that if the pig was to be slaughtered and fit for human consumption the Creator would have provided it with a neck.

The medical science finds that there is a risk for various diseases as the pig is found to be a host for many parasites and potential diseases. It is important to note that the pig's biochemistry excretes only 2% of its total uric acid content, the remaining 98% remains as an integral part of the body.

Note: Islam forbids not only pork but meat of all those animals who eat their own or some one else's body waste; the most commonly known animal in this category is pig or swine whose meat is commonly known as pork.
