Protect every animal at all costs!

Penguins are one of the cutest animals out there, but have you ever thought of having one as a meal? Well if you have, this article’s for you!

Former Religious Affairs Minister, Datuk Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri has said that penguins are halal to eat.


An anonymous question was posted on Twitter page, @maktabahab asking whether or not penguin meat is halal to eat.

The question was then answered by Zulkifli who announced that they are indeed halal to eat!

“Cute and halal.”

Although, we may be able to eat them, he ended his tweet by reminding people that some penguin species are endangered and that we must protect them.


Twitter users are shook!

Twitter users were amused by the words used by Zulfikli and expressed their delight in the comments section.

“The comel and halal took me out.”

One user even said that they genuinely loved how the sentence was phrased!

Some users could not believe how anyone would even think of this question in the 1st place.

“I can’t believe that somebody else had the same question as I did.”

Another Twitter user questioned it and said, “Who in the right mind would want to eat a penguin“.
