Pakistan Halal Authority remained dysfunctional for over two years since its formation because of the ineligibility of the higher officials of the Ministry and Science and technology.

The Authority was formed to prevent import of haram food.

According to reports, food items worth $3-4 billion are annually brought in Pakistan from Far East, Europe, America and other countries.

Moreover, there are chances that food items that come from those regions contain haram ingredients in them.
