Starting in India, protests have started to spread and are now including fires where the apparent slur on the Prophet Mohammed is being burned while protestors chant. The sacrilege has been revealed as a picture of a cat on Pampers nappies which apparently when turned upside down shows the name of Mohammed in Arabic!
Pampers have responded to the burnings by saying: "We are aware of the false and misleading information about Pampers being spread via social media channels such as Facebook and YouTube.The design on the Pampers Baby Dry Pants shows an innocent animated representation of a cat. It shows a cat’s mouth and whiskers like it is commonly portrayed in drawings and cartoons across the world, especially by little children. The intent behind the use of this cartoon is completely innocent and we would never intend to offend any person, religion or cultural belief."
Some social media users joined in the calls for a Pampers boycott, while others insisted the cartoon was just an innocent drawing of a cat. Protests look set to spread and in some locations "a day of rage" is planned against Pampers!
