Amazon Pulls 'Allah' Doormats


A muslim councillor has received an apology from online retail giant Amazon – for selling doormats with Allah’s name on them.

The company has also removed the product, which bears the prophet’s name in Arabic script, after being alerted by Mariam Khan, Labour councillor for Washwood Heath.

She took action after being contacted by a number of constituents who were offended that Allah’s name featured on a product for wiping feet.

The 26-year-old said that the mats flew in the face of the current Amazon Christmas advert, which promotes racial and religious harmony.

These mats are extremely offensive to Muslims & out of order.
@amazon@AmazonHelp please remove these
from your site immediately.

The story took a new course after the product was noticed earlier this month by Mariam Khan, a city councilor from Birmingham, UK. On Monday, she addressed Amazon on Twitter, complaining that the mats were “extremely offensive to Muslims.”
