Halal-TV is a Swedish television show, based on the Dutch show De Meiden van Halal. The program is hosted by three young veiled Muslim women who portray the Swedish society from their perspective. It consisted of eight episodes and was broadcast on SVT2 in the fall of 2008.

The program sparked controversy before the first episode had been broadcast. For example, one of the hosts, Cherin Awad, had made a statement in the show Existens five years earlier which some interpreted as her condoning stoning because of sexual infidelity.

Another controversy surrounded the politician Carl B Hamilton who was interviewed in one episode. When meeting the hosts, he insisted on shaking their hands. Two of the hosts, did however refuse to shake Hamiltons hand, as they thought that violated their religious beliefs. This sparked a heated discussion between Hamilton and the hosts which was later published by SVT and spread on the Internet.
