A Muslim consumer group wants mineral water bottles with picture of Hindu deity removed.

http://www.therakyatpost.com/news/20...worship-water/

The label has a picture of a giant statue located outside Batu Caves which is a shrine and a popular tourist destination.

Stupidity has reached a whole new level.

I think the OP is a bit misleading. They questioned the use of the Halal logo on such bottles.

There would be no issue if the Halal logo was not there.

But it's the water that is halal not the bottle it comes in

But seriously shouldn't the fact it's clean water be more important then an image on the bottle

But talk about messed up priorities

I just have to mention since I've been to Malaysia a fair few times that a lot of them would think this is stupid and of no concern at all. The Malaysians that I have met literally mix with everybody of whatever religion and race...

Just had to get that out of the way since I don't think people should confuse areas like Malaysia with Saudia Arabia etc

But yeah on topic, that is pretty stupid.

What is the point that you are making?

If the EDL and similar groups were in uproar over a mosque being built, would you simply reply "England is a Christian country, so what's the issue?"

What about stuff where the packaging has pictures of animals on it, why don't Muslims complain about that? It seems you can't fart in the wrong direction for fear of upsetting Muslims.

And Malaysia is a Muslim country how exactly? Considering like 20% of the population is Buddhist and a further 10% are Christian, it would be difficult to claim Malaysia is a Muslim nation while claiming England is not Christian.

You understand that you're providing justification to the anti-muslim extremists for expelling you guys, right?
