MV: A friend sent me this article written by some Islamic Doctor. What he tells is really interesting and leaves me thinking, why would anyone ever even want to eat pig in the first place, knowing how much fat is occupied in it. The article mostly goes through about how the fat of pig was traveled to history so its pretty interesting.
Thanks for Monis, for providing me with this article

PIG FAT by Dr. M. Amjad Khan
In nearly all the western countries including Europe, the PRIMARY
choice for meat is PIG. There are a lot of farms in these countries to A
breed this animal. In France alone, Pig Farms account for more than
PIGS have the highest quantity of FAT in their body than any other
animal. But Europeans and Americans try to avoid fats.
Thus, where does the FAT from these PIGS go? All pigs are cut
in slaughter houses under the control of the department of food and it
was the headache of the department of food to dispose of the fat
removed from these pigs.
Formally, it was burnt (about 60 years ago). Then they thought of
utilizing it. First, they experimented it in the making of SOAPS and
Then, a full network was formed and this FAT was chemically Processed,
Packed and Marketed, while the other manufacturing companies bought
it. In the meantime, all European States made it a rule that every
Food, Medical and Personal Hygiene product should have the ingredients
listed on its cover. so, this ingredient was listed as PIG FAT.
Those who are living in Europe for the past 40 years know about this.
But, these products came under a ban by the ISLAMIC COUNTRIES at that
time, which resulted in a trade deficit.
Going back in time, if you are somehow related to South East Asia, you
might know about the provoking factors of the 1857 CIVIL WAR. At that
time, Rifle Bullets were made in Europe and transported to the
sub-continent through the Sea. It took months to reach there and the
gun powder in it was ruined due to the exposure to sea.
Then, they got the idea of coating the Bullets with fat, which was PIG
FAT. The fat layer had to be scratched by teeth before using them.
When the word spread, the soldiers, mostly Muslim and some
Vegetarians, refused to fight. Which eventually lead to the Civil War.
The Europeans recognized these facts, and instead of writing PIG FAT,
they started writing ANIMAL FAT. All those living in Europe since
1970’s know this fact. When the companies were asked by authorities
from the MUSLIM COUNTRIES, what animal fat is it, they were told it
was COW and SHEEP Fat. Here again a question raised, if it was COW or
SHEEP Fat, still it is HARAAM to MUSLIMS, as these animal were not
SLAUGHTERED as per the ISLAMIC LAW. Thus, they were again banned.
Now, these multinational companies were again facing a severe drought
of money as 75% of their income comes from selling their goods to
Muslim Countries, and these earn BILLIONS OF DOLLARS of Profit from
their exports to the MUSLIM WORLD.
Finally they decided to start a coding language, so that only their
Departments of Food Administration should know what they are using,
and the common man is left lurking in the dark. Thus, they started
E-CODES. These E- INGREDIENTS are present in a majority of products of
multinational firms including, but not limited to –
CORN FLAKES, TOFFEES,
Some medication Multi-vitamins Since these goods are being used in all
MUSLIM Countries indiscrimately, our society is facing problems like
shamelessness, rudeness and sexual promiscuity.
So, I request all MUSLIMS or non pork eaters to check the ingredients
of the ITEMS of daily use and match it with the following list of
E-CODES. If any of the ingredients listed below is found, try to avoid
it, as it has got PIG FAT ;
E100, E110, E120, E 140, E141, E153, E210, E213, E214, E216, E234,
