On the outside of the packaging of Pampers nappies sold in India there is the stylized drawing of the face of a cat. Irrationally some Muslims in the country have decided that the picture of the cat’s face resembles the Prophet Mohammed’s name when written in Arabic.
As a consequence, they are deeply insulted, their feelings are hurt and the Muslim community is protesting in the strongest possible terms.
A video online which has been viewed 175,000 times shows outraged Muslims making bonfires out of Pampers Baby Dry Pants in the streets of India. Whole packets of Pampers have been burnt to a cinder by this outraged community which has left people like me utterly baffled. I cannot see any connection, visually, aesthetically or in any other way between the stylistic drawing of the cat’s face and the Prophet Mohammed’s name in Arabic. Can you see any resemblance other than the fact that the cat’s face is a line drawing?
In a letter of complaint to the local police it was stated that even with the naked eye you can tell that the name of the Prophet has been printed on the packaging of Pampers in Urdu Arabic. A little extreme I’d say and somewhat delusional.
THE VIDEO THAT WAS HERE BECAME ‘UNAVAIALABLE’. WHY? AND SORRY TO READERS.
There are protests and calls for the product to be banned and boycotted. They are up in arms about it. More rational people have said that they should grow up because it is obvious that the drawing is of a cat showing eyes, whiskers, nose and mouth. The protest is a reflection on the irrational sensibilities of extremist Muslims. Calm down please and get real.
P.S. I’d like to remind these guys of the Prophet Mohammed’s love of cats. I think they have forgotten. Would Mohammed have complained?
