On this occasion, as a speaker, Ir. Hj. Osmena Gunawan, Deputy Director of Information and Information Sector at LPPOM MUI, conveyed the importance of consuming halal food.
Regarding several chain messages via WhatsApp that are often circulating in the community on behalf of one of the pesantren in Kediri, East Java since 2016. The message mentions seasoning products (one of which is Masako® and AJI-NO-MOTO®) which are stated to contain pork. Mrs. Osmena as Deputy Director of Information and Information Sector LPPOM MUI confirmed that the message was confirmed to be hoax or false news.
"Recently the issue or news (hoax) has reappeared by profiteering Dr. Muchyidin Junaidi Lc, MA. The MUI's International Cooperation Sector as the person who posted the news, in my opinion, this is certainly invalid because the halal food is under the auspices of the MUI's Economic Sector, and that is Dr. Lukmanul Hakim, MSi, "said Mrs. Osmena.
"I am in the capacity of Deputy Director of Information and Socialization, so I know exactly that those messages on WhatsApp are hoax or false news.
