The agricultural innovations, which are approved by the Islamic Shariah as “Halal”, are directed at bringing good to humanity to ensure food security of the country, Islamic scholars have said. 

Muslim scholars discussed the importance of accessing agricultural innovation for sustainable food security, and agreed that this innovation keeps in line with Islamic Shariah, and beliefs.

The event titled “Agricultural Innovation and Agri-Biotechnology in Islamic Shariah” was organised by Farming Future Bangladesh (FFB), at Krishibid Institute Bangladesh in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Shaykh Ahmadullah, chairman of As-Sunnah Foundation, said: “Islamic Shariah approves all worldly acts aimed at human good, therefore agricultural innovations are considered Halal.”

Speaking further, Islamic researcher Maulana Hedayetullah said: “The Islamic clerics have great support for the idea, and process of biotechnology, because it has a great impact for the wellbeing of mankind.”

“Science and religion are not conflicting, and agricultural innovation should be emphasized to ensure more food for Bangladesh,” said Mufti Saiful, Khatib of Masjid-Ut-Taqwa.   

They also discussed the need to share fact-based scientific information to improve social awareness, and acceptance of modern agricultural innovation and agri-biotechnology, including GMOs. 

Earlier, Mawlana Ali Hassan Toiyob presented the keynote paper. Muslim scholars, present at the program, learned about the success of modern innovation, and the potential of agri-biotechnology to overcome challenges.
