JEKAARTA (VICTORY POST / ASIA NETWORK NETWORK) – Muslims forced Nike to sell Air Max brand shoes with a design model that reminds us of the Arabic word "Allah".
The sports giant is asked to remember the sneakers, with Muslims saying they "insult Islam."
The attack began when Muslim client Saiga Norrien spotted what she believed was an Arabic word for Allah on the shoe. She immediately launched an online petition, urging the company to remove the popular shoe from its world market.
Ms Norien accused Nike of having an irreconcilable attitude towards Islam, in the description of the petition: "It is abnormal and disturbing for Nike to allow the name of God of shoe. This is disrespect and extremely insulting to Muslims and insulting Islam."
"Nike produced the Nike Air Max 270 shoe with the logo of the script as unique to the word Allah in Arabic, which will surely be trampled, hit and dirty with mud and even dirt," writes Ms. Norien. She called on all Muslims and all who agreed with her to sign the petition.
Currently, over 16,000 people have signed the petition in order to reach 25,000 signatures.
Other supporters went to Twitter to express their attack on Nike's blasphemous product.
"Why Nike sells trainers who clearly have" Allah "written in #Arabic.Have removed their shoes from sales, disgusting and disgusted," Twitter said to an angry supporter, with an image that directs people to support the petition of Ms. Norien .
Nike denied the allegations that he deliberately insulted the Muslim community, saying the logo was "styled representation of Nike's" Air Max "brand and that it has no religious significance, as the RT reported.
"It is intended to reflect only the" Air Max "brand. Any other meaningful meaning or representation is unintentional," said Nike representative.
