Muslim protests in India are calling for a boycott of Pampers products after claiming to have seen the word ‘Mohammed’ in the face of a cartoon cat which appears on its nappies.

The lines illustrating the whiskers, nose, mouth and left eye of the smiley feline have been suggested to resemble the Prophet’s name when written in Arabic or Urdu, although the company that makes the products vehemently denied the claims.

Procter and Gamble in a statement that said they would never intend to offend any person or religion and the the design showed ‘an innocent animated representation of a cat.’

However, the image on the hygiene product has been branded an ‘insult’ to Islam by critics, and protesters have staged ‘Pampers burnings’.

Muslim protests in India are calling for a boycott of Pampers products after claiming to have seen the word ‘Mohammed’ in the face of a cartoon cat which appears on its nappies.

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.

The letter went on to say: ‘Arrest them and punish them.’

A spokesman for Pampers’ owner Procter & Gamble said: ‘We are aware of the false and misleading information about Pampers being spread via social media channels such as Facebook and YouTube.

‘The design on the Pampers Baby Dry Pants shows an innocent animated representation of a cat. It shows a cat’s mouth and whiskers like it is commonly portrayed in drawings and cartoons across the world, especially by little children.

‘The intent behind the use of this cartoon is completely innocent and we would never intend to offend any person, religion or cultural belief.’


But will they cave to Islamic demands and remove the cat, that is the question.

  1. Imagine the property damage and bloodshed if a provocative artist had decided to display a statue of Muhammad in a jar full of urine. Submission to Violence, Rage, and Killing, is the cornerstone of Islam. If Islam came with a label on it, the threat of violence and death would be listed as its active ingredient.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
