Amazon is making money by desecrating Islam
It is the holy month of Ramadan and Muslim across the globe are fasting. Ramadan is a month of reflection, forgiveness, and self-realization. While Muslims are fasting, Amazon and its affiliates are blaspheming against a religion by selling underwear, bathroom mats, and other items with the name of God and other Qur’anic verses written on them. According to Islamic faith, placing the name of God or any religious text under one's feet or on their genital areas is sacrilege. Furthermore, wearing, displaying and/or showcasing religious text below the waistline is blasphemous. In some Islamic countries, such as Pakistan, blasphemy is punishable by death.
Afghanistan’s flag is an Islamic one and atop of the emblem is written the following sacred Islamic creed in Arabic, "There is no God but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah". In the bottom of the emblem is written another sacred Islamic creed, “Allah Akbar” ("God is great"). But Amazon apparently does not care about the many Muslims who have directly approached the company representatives to remind them about the blasphemous nature of these products. Since when is desecrating a religion so blatantly appropriate?
Many individuals have disrespected Mohammed, the prophet of Islam, and have burnt the Qur’an, the holy book of Muslims, which has resulted in unnecessary loss of life and destruction of public property in many Muslim countries by angry mobs.
However, no international company has so blatantly ignored the faith of the Muslim population as Amazon. It is Amazon’s responsibility to remove products that desecrate and disrespect people’s faith.
Amazon must know that in today’s global economy it can be punished by Muslim buyers worldwide for such a blatant neglect and disrespect of their religion. Putting the name of God (Allah) on a man or women’s genital area is not okay. Putting God’s name on the bathroom bowl is not okay. It is a blasphemous disrespect to 1.5 billion people of this earth.
Amazon's neglect gives Islamic fundamentalist the pre-text to attack Western nationals and their sympathizers abroad. Endangering lives for self-enrichment and profit should not be allowed by international law and the public.
