Riots in India as groups of Muslims burn evil Pampers nappies for “insulting Mohammed”.
The whiskers of the cartoon cat on the packaging supposedly resemble the name of the Islamic prophet; except they don’t.
Protestors claimed the Procter & Gamble diapers ‘hurt the feelings’ of the Muslim community, and demand that they be banned from the country.
The lines illustrating the whiskers, nose, mouth and left eye of the smiley feline clearly do not bear a close resemblance to the Prophet’s name when written in Arabic or Urdu.
Video footage viewed more than 175,000 times online shows outraged parents making pyres out of Pampers Baby Dry Pants in the streets of India and torching whole packets in protest.
Activists from the Islamic group Darsgah Jihad-o-Shahadat yesterday lodged a formal complaint about the nappies at Dabeerpura Police Station in Hyderabad, reports the Deccan Chronicle.
In a letter to police, the group said Pampers – owned by US multinational Procter & Gamble – had ‘hurt the feelings’ of the Muslim community and called for the products to be taken off the shelves immediately.
It stated: ‘Even with (the) bare eye it is been identified that the name of Prophet (PBUH) can be seen printed on it in Urdu/Arabic.’
The Prophet Mohammed, it added, was a ‘holy personality in Islam’ and the ‘disrespect cannot be tolerated’.
The letter went on to say: ‘Arrest them and punish them.’
