Sony has issued a worldwide recall of its new game, LittleBigPlanet, in case it offends muslims.
They were warned by a beta tester that one of the backing tracks, written by a Somali muslim, contains two phrases that are in the Koran and might be considered offensive by fundamentalist muslim nutjobs.
Sony release a game last year with a scene where you could shoot people up in Manchester cathedral but they didn’t withdraw the game after they got complaints. Yet here they are, without even getting a complaint, withdrawing a game because it’s got some words out of the Koran in it.
Apparently putting bits of the Koran to music is offensive because they’re words of god. But Jesus was supposed to have been one of Allah’s prophets so his words were the words of god as well so why is it that muslims don’t start jumping up and down when they puts Jesus’ words to music? Or any part of the Old Testament which is one of the holy books of Islam? Why? Because it’s not offensive, it’s just an excuse to have a fucking whinge and take the piss.
Manzoor Moghal, of the Muslim Forum think-tank, explained that words from the Koran should not be set to music because the words are seen to have come directly from God.
He added: “We must compliment Sony for taking decisive action by withdrawing these games immediately, and releasing a version that is not offensive to Muslims.”
Yeah, well why don’t you just fuck off and live in a cave somewhere if you’re that bothered about being offended by the infidels? If you don’t want to listen to the soundtrack of the game, don’t buy it. If you hear it and it offends you then go somewhere where you won’t hear it. Or alternatively, get a fucking life.
Someone remind me why we constantly pussyfoot around these people instead of depriving them of oxygen.
