Hyderabad Muslims burn diapers as a cat’s face on it resembles Prophet’s name

Some Muslims in Hyderabad have taken offence to the baby diapers brand Pampers, which according to them insults their Prophet Mohammed. As per reports, the image of a cat’s (on the diapers) nose, mouth, whiskers and left eye is similar to Prophet Mohammed’s spelling in Arabic.

This incidentally is the picture of the controversial cat:

They incidentally are so angry that they have decided to burn Pampers packets in full public view as per a video put out by Daily Mail which was shared on Twitter by @OnlineMagzin:

In the video, one person is heard saying that initially they dismissed the story as a social media rumour but were convinced after personally checking the diapers in the market. Later a few people are seen putting a few Pampers packets on the ground and then setting them ablaze. While the diapers are burning a person can be heard chanting ‘Musa, Musa, Zakir Musa’.

The Mirror report claims that this burning exercise was committed in Hyderabad, though as per a Newsminute report, this video seems to be from Kashmir.

Reports have also claimed that various Muslims have decided to file a complaint at the Dabeerpura police station in Hyderabad. One organisation named Darsgah Jihad-o-Shahadat (DJS) filed a formal complaint there on Tuesday.

The complaint alleges that it was an intentional act on part of the company which has hurt the sentiments of the entire Muslim community. The holding company of Pampers: Procter and Gamble have issued a statement that the design on Pampers depicted an innocent representation of a cat and that the company had no intention to cause any offence.
