Man tror det er en spøk, men det er blodig alvor: Tusenvis av mennesker forlanger at Nike trekker en sko som de mener har en logo som ligner på Allah på arabisk på sålen.

Thousands of people are demanding sports apparel giant Nike recall its Air Max 270 shoe, saying that the «blasphemous» logo is offensive to Muslims.

Change.org petition, which garnered more than 14,000 signatures by mid-day Wednesday, claims that the logo resembles “Allah,” the Arabic word for God, written in Arabic script.

Petitioner Saiqa Noreen says the logo “will surely be trampled, kicked and become soiled with mud or even filth.”

“It is outrageous and appalling of Nike to allow the name of God on a shoe,” Noreen wrote. “This is disrespectful and extremely offensive to Muslim’s and insulting to Islam.”

Noreen is also demanding Nike recall the «blasphemous and offensive shoe and all products with the design logo resembling the word Allah from worldwide sales immediately.»

En talsperson for Nike forstår ikke kritikken og sier det bare er snakker om en stilisert utgave av Air Max-logoen.
