Muslim Wants To Ban Peppa Pig Cartoon
British Muslim Zayn Sheikh has launched a campaign to ban Peppa Pig because his son apparently decided he wants to be a pig rather than a doctor.
The offended man wants the cartoon to be banned from television and has made a Facebook page called ‘Muslims against Peppa Pig’. Sheikh explained his reasons against the character in a video that has been shared over 9,000 times.
“Some of you, right, might have seen this abominable creature before, right, this Peppa Pig. Haram pig. As Muslims it is very important that we do not eat meat of the pork. It is completely wrong that our kids are being shown these things on TV and my son…he wants to be a pig now. I think that we need to change this so I’m going to set up a Facebook group, Muslims against Peppa Pig and instead, because children still need cartoons to develop their minds, I propose we introduce Abdullah the cat.”
Sheikh has also set up an online petition called ‘Remove Peppa Pig from TV’, but his campaign has only been met with fierce opposition.
In addition, people who are defending the character have set up a rival Facebook group called ‘Save Peppa Pig from Muslim Fanatics’.
“Please all you Peppa Pig fans must post your favourite piggy videos and photos right away and save our precious pig.”
