In Kuala Lumpur, a teacher in Perak has lodged a police report after spotting the word “Allah” in Arabic printed on the tiny toy flag that came with the toy brick set bought for his son.
Berita Harian, Mahnun Mat Isa, 40, said he found the toy set which had little figures dressed in black and carrying the questionable flag that he claimed to resemble “terrorists”, adding that it “offended the sensitivities of Muslims”.
He said, “I ask the authorities to not freely allow the entry of toys that touch on religious sensitivities in this country,”.
The “terrorist” toy set he bought was part of the Falcon Commandos series by Chinese manufacturer Sheng Yuan, that sells knock-offs of the famous Lego bricks.
Mahnun said he has reported the toy to the police and the Parit Buntar branch of Perak religious authorities last week. He also urged the Home Ministry to investigate the matter and removed the toy from shelves.
