Muslims burn piles of Pampers nappies, call for ban because cartoon cat's whiskers printed on them 'look like the Arabic spelling of Mohammed'
  • Protesters in India are calling for a boycott of Pampers nappies

  • Activists from the Islamic group Darsgah Jihad-o-Shahadat yesterday lodged a formal complaint with the police in Hyderabad

  • They have taken offense with a cartoon cat appearing on the product

  • Lines of its face resemble the word Prophet Mohammed in Arabic
    No, they don’t. Not even if you squint really hard, based on the example given at the link.
  • Groups have staged 'Pampers burnings', setting fire to nappies in the streets

  • Owner Procter and Gamble said design was intended as 'innocent animated cat’

If the mobs are buying diapers to burn, P&G will be happy to sell more product. If they are simply taking them from the shops, it is a matter for the police. The accusation, however, is hysterical nonsense — P&G has been in Saudi Arabia since 1956, entering India almost a decade later. If there were an issue with the packaging artwork, the Saudi employees would have pointed it out.

Wikipedia has this about Darsgah Jihad-o-Shahadat:

... (literally The Centre for Jihad and Martyrdom)[1] is an Islamist group based in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, with branches in the state of Kerala.[2] The group claims to have trained about 50,000 people in self-defence techniques at its training camps in Hazrat Ujale Shah Idgah grounds at Saidabad and Purani Haveli.[3][4]

The training camps were closed in 2013 after the death of Shaik Mahboob Ali and restarted in 2017.[5] Some of the former members of this group are accused of joining al-Qaeda and its affiliates and of involvement in multiple terror attacks across India.

The article also lists connections to Indian Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Al Qaeda affiliates Lashkar-e-Taiba and Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami, Tehreek-Ghalba-e-Islam, and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen.

#1 Sometimes I kinda feel bad for ol' Allan. When it comes to followers, he really got the short end of the stick.

#2 The Lions of Islam get snappy
Whenever their nappies are crappy,
But why are they bitter?
A box and some litter
Is all they give Al, and he's happy!

They haven't even reached the neolithic yet so it will be a while.

#9 I remember when an ice cream lid at Burger King looked like it said Allah when looked at sideways and all I could think of is it looked like dog poop when looked at right-side up and that seemed appropriate.
