Australia: Butcher shop’s “Non-Halal Certified” sign banned as “offensive and demeaning” to Muslims


Until a couple of weeks ago, the shop proudly displayed a decal in the window featuring their business name and the words "NON-HALAL CERTIFIED" with a picture of an emu and kangaroos. But the majority of the Panel on the Advertising Standards body considered that the sign's wording and images amounted to a depiction that was inciting hatred or contempt of a group of people based on their religious practices or Muslim origin.
