MUSLIMS have called for a boycott of British retailer Marks and Sparks after they claimed its toilet rolls had the word ‘Allah’ printed onto it.
Footage posted to social media claimed that M&S’s Aloe Vera 3-ply toilet tissue had the symbol.
The video featured an unidentified man telling ‘brothers and sisters’ not to buy the product because ‘every toilet tissue has the name of Allah on it’.
The video said: “Recently I bought toilet tissue from Marks & Spencer and when I opened one of them, it has the name of Allah, as you can see. ‘So please brothers and sisters, prevent yourselves from buying this particular toilet tissue, or try boycott Marks & Spencers, because every toilet tissue has the name of Allah on it.”
Marks and Spencer denied the claims and said in a statement on Twitter that the pattern is ‘categorically of an aloe vera leaf’.
A petition calling for Marks and Sparks to change the ‘offensive’ pattern has gained more than 1,000 signatures.
Musa Ahmed, who made the petition on change.org, said the toilet paper was ‘deliberately insulting our religion’
