Can Deoband help Muslims find Halal food in India’s fast food restaurants?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
I am writing this mail to you about Halal food available in all these fast food restaurants in India, since I am from Bangalore and 3 years back I have stopped eating chicken in McDonalds KFC and likewise other brand. I am asking you for a help these stores are expanding rapidly and without knowing that these stores serve Halal cut many Muslims in fact many are falling a prey to it, the Prophet (peace be upon him) in one hadith had said avoid in matters of doubt, but today many and many Muslims are falling into it. I sincerely request Deoband to wake up and stop this menace because if Muslims do not get halal food then they will get astray and we are to be blamed for it as there has to be some mechanism where big madrasa like Deoband have to wake up and fight.


(Fatwa: 380/222/D=1433)

Your feeling is valuable. No doubt, halal foods play a vital role in good deeds. Meats about which we know that they were slaughtered by Muslims on Islamic pattern it shall be lawful to consume it as per the fatwa. But in view of the carelessness of the time it is good to avoid it, but it is not lawful to declare any meat haram without research.
