A woman who bought a building blocks toy set for her son here was shocked to discover that it contained elements that are offensive to Muslims.
40-year-old Mahnun Mat Isa, a teacher, said she was surprised to find the word ”Allah” and ”Muhammad” on a banner held by a ”terrorist-like” character in the game set.
“What’s more shocking is that the terrorist character (is wearing) an (Islamic turban),” she said
Mahnun had bought the toy set at a shop in Taiping and the product was made in China.
“I came to know about it when my son, who was playing with the toy, showed me the ‘terrorist’ character holding a banner which displayed the words ‘Allah’ and ‘Muhammad’,” she told reporters here yesterday.
Mahnun said she immediately lodged a police report and informed the Perak Islamic Religious Council (Maipk) in Parit Buntar on May 25.
Kerian police chief Supt Omar Bakhtiar Yaacob confirmed receiving a report from the teacher
