Saudi seizes toy guns mocking Prophet’s wife
Saudi Arabia seized nearly 1,500 Chinese-made toy guns at a local market found to be issuing sounds that abuse and mock the Prophet’s (Peace Be Upon Him) wife, Aisha, newspapers in the Gulf kingdom reported on Sunday.
Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the most influential law enforcement authority in the country, seized the toys during a raid on a shopping centre in the western town of Jeddah.
“The guns were found to be issuing sounds which are considered mocking and offending against the Prophet’s wife,” the newspaper said, quoting Commission spokesman in Jeddah, Turki Al Zahrani.
He said sellers of those toys, mostly Asians, apparently do not know they offend Islam as the guns issue sounds in Arabic.
