Reader comment on item: Finding Allah in Unlikely Places
in response to reader comment: Absurdity the common theme

Submitted by Tilok Adnan (Bangladesh), May 27, 2009 at 05:50

Yeah, well obviously you have a grudge against Islam. But we as Muslims are hated by a lot of people like you okay. It's not our imagination that works when we accuse brands for putting the name of Allah on shoes( Recently done by Puma, resembling the word "cool"), rather it's the racism and prejudice that narrows our minds into thinking these things. And who knows? Maybe it wasn't Nike's intention to do such a think, but the designer may have done it to portray his feelings towards our religion. I as a Muslim believe that we put too much effort into throwing down anything that offends our religion. It's better that we stay quiet. Then no one would care...

but still, question yourself this: Is it right to put the word "GOD" on my shoes? Maybe you can't feel the shame in that, because USA has lost most religious values... Don't get me wrong! I'm not very religious either. But before you criticize another race or religion, reflect on your own faults.
