LG seems to be saying to all the other religions of the world – “Fuck You”. But it might placate the Taliban: “If you do not give up watching televisions, you will face violence”. A listing of the Qur’an’s verses about jihad.
LG said in a release that the TV, which comes in 42 inch and 50 inch versions, is the first of its kind in the world. The company began selling it in conjunction with the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which started at the beginning of September.
Quranic verses can be read on screen and listened to via software embedded in the TV. All 114 chapters of the holy book are included and up to 10 pages can be bookmarked via remote control, LG said.
LG said it decided to offer the product after learning through a survey that many Muslims listened to the Quran via their home theater systems and that ratings for radio broadcasts of the holy book were high.
“The product resulted from noticing that devout Muslims read and listen to the Quran almost every day,” Park Jong-seok, vice president of LGs PDP division, said in the release.
