COLES UNITED WITH MUSLIMS REAPING IN EXCESS OF $1 MILLION IT WAS SAID

A recent Muslim supplying information about Coles being tied to the high levels of Muslim councils and making equal halal profits as the councils.

Here is the article and a quote from it which should concern everyone including the Halal Inquiry.

QUOTE:  Further quotes from Mr Rifi as follows:
The Supreme Islamic Council of Halal Meat in Australia (SICHMA), which has a partnership with Coles, and Australian Federation of Islamic Council (AFIC) each collect close to $1 million per year from Halal operations. As listed charities, both are eligible to receive GST concessions, income tax exemptions and the FBT rebate. SICHMA received more than $1.5 million last year from certification income and Halal audits, adding to assets worth more than $1.5 million. AFIC, rebranded as Muslims Australia, has registered steady growth in halal revenue, collecting more than $860,000 according to its 2012 financial statements. The organisation, founded in 1964, collected a further $5.5 million from management fees, rental income and other revenue streams.

A partnership with Coles? Very likely a breach of the trade practices Act in several areas. What exactly is this alleged partnership?
Coles collects over $1 million per year in Halal operations? What are these operations? Lets identify them.
And, how can a product reseller like coles, have any reason to be involved with certification of produce on its shelves, especially to the tune of a million dollars or more.
