He also clarified that the federal cabinet did not grant the license to the alcohol manufacturer as the matter was never tabled during any of its meetings.

Note that on Monday, it was reported that a Chinese liquor manufacturing company has received a manufacturing license to start alcohol production in Pakistan.

Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan’s (SECP) record shows that Hui Coastal Brewery and Distillery Limited, the Chinese liquor company in question, was registered in April last year with the address of Hub, Balochistan.

  • Very sad that a liquor producing company is going to start its business in Pakistan. It should be stop at this stage and all pakistani Muslims should protest against this. I also condemn this act of government.

    • Why would they sell if no one buys it. They sell it cuz they have a customer base here thats why.
      A large number of people drink murree brewery. We have a small non- muslim population but murree brewry has more customers than total population of non muslims. People drink it thats why they sell it.

  • how on earth is a factory gonna impact the Muslim Ummah of Pakistan. They are manufacturing and exporting, not forcing you to drink or charging anything. If anything, they are gonna generate employment and revenue through taxes. How dumb can one be to not understand these things?

    • Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah: That he heard Allah’s Apostle saying in the year of the Conquest (of Mecca) while he was in Mecca, Allah and His Apostle have made the selling of wine (i.e. alcoholic drinks) unlawful.

      I think thats enough

      • selling is prohibited in Pakistan, even if you go to Marriott and lets say you have american pasport but Muslim written on it than you are not allowed to enter in the bar.
        I dont support manufacturing as well even if it is exported but first they should shut down murree brewery. if murree brewery is processing since decades in pakistan than there is a law supporting production of alcohol.
        The law itself needs to change.

        • yh i am with you on murree brewery but u can’t justify allowing further breweries to be opened just because you can’t close one Already opened. In the meantime you have stop giving license to new breweries.
          Further on selling yes sale to muslims is banned but the problem with theses intoxicants is even production is banned in islam let alone trade with non muslims for reference
          It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
          “Wine is cursed from ten angles: The wine itself, the one who squeezes , the one for whom it is squeezed, the one who sells it, the one who buys it, the one who carries it, the one to whom it is carried, the one who consumes its price, the one who drinks it and the one who pours it.”

          So in short in a muslim country alcohol production even if it is for the nonmuslims is prohibited but on the practical side I don’t think any action would be done because the law makers of this country on whom we rely are themselves alcoholic.

  • Stop at this stage and all pakistani Muslims should protest against this. I also condemn this act of government.

  • As far as I know, they only have a license to produce. They are going to produce here and then export it to other countries.
