This is so ridiculous. The way “Allah” is written in Arabic, one can see it in almost any up-and-down pattern. Some years ago, a Muslim in the UK flew into a rage and started issuing threats because he thought the swirl design on Burger King’s ice cream looked like “Allah.” And in the 1990s, Muslim groups strong-armed Nike into dropping a line of shoes that bore a pattern they thought resembled “Allah.”
H&M should not have caved. They should have said, “Don’t be silly. It’s a puff of smoke,” and moved on. But no one ever stands up to Islamic victimhood pressure groups. That would, apparently, be “Islamophobic.”
“Sweden: Swedish clothing brand H&M apologises for ‘Allah’ writing on socks,” Muslim News, January 28, 2018
STOCKHOLM (AA): The Swedish clothing brand H&M apologized for allegedly having a pattern resembling the word “Allah” written in Arabic letters on children’s socks, local media reported.
The pattern on the children’s socks ignited uproar among the customers in the country, Swedish state-run radio SVT reported.
In a statement, H&M claimed they did not use the word “Allah” but apologized for the resemblance.
The company announced that all socks have been recalled from markets.
On January 8, the company had also apologized for an online advertisement featuring a black child modeling a sweatshirt reading “Coolest monkey in the jungle.”
