If they look into the Islamic banking in SE Asia they will find there is a much higher percentage of customers that are non-Muslim who have seen the benefits are more favourable for them.

For the first time, it is a topic which is receiving serious public
attention; and the future of Islamic branding was in the spotlight at
the last World Islamic Economic Forum in Kuala Lumpur.

Globalising Halal Standards: Issues and Challenges

The
definitions of Halal, while generally agreed upon by Muslims, display
significant gaps when it comes to their application in the industry.
Due to differing Halal standards not only between countries but also
within each individual country (following the presence of various Halal
authorities), confusion, misunderstanding and even abuse in the Halal
audit and certification process have occurred. As a result, supply
chains have been broken whilst artificial shortages of raw material
have emerged as a result of disunity between Halal certification bodies.
