New Islamic Car to be Halal

The Malaysian carmaker Proton has announced plans to develop an "Islamic car", designed strictly for Muslim motorists.

However, is the Islamic car maker, based in Malaysia, prepared to pair up employees to create the worlds first Halal car. What is Halal? Anything permissible under Islam. According to Wikipedia, approximately 70% of Muslims follow Halal... At a level of 1.2 billion, Muslims represent about 22% of the world's population. This is a huge market! Muslims are the second largest religion in the world. Only Christianity is larger, with 33% of the world's inhabitants.

By-the-way, one of the requirements is, this car is "not" to be built with the inappropriate hand...and a key flaw to this initiative, in my opinion, is Proton isn't Ferrari.
