MUSLIM MASSACRE COMPUTER GAME IS TASTELESS AND WRONG
Published: 10/09/08 22.00
The Ramadhan Foundation expresses its deep condemnation and
anger at the computer game released called Muslim massacre.
This game is glorifying the killing of Muslims in the Middle
East and we urge ISP providers to take action to remove this
site from their services as it incites violence towards Muslims
and is trying to justify the killing of innocent Muslims.
We have written to the British Government today to urge an
inquiry into this game and take action to shut down the site;
this is not satire but a deliberate attempt to demonise Muslims.
Mr. Mohammed Shafiq, Chief Executive of the Foundation comments:
“Encouraging children and young people in a game to kill Muslims
is unacceptable, tasteless and deeply offensive.
'There is an increase in violence in this country and some of it
comes from video games.
'When kids spend six hours a day on violent games they are more
likely to go outside and commit violence.
'If it was the other way around, with a game featuring Muslims
killing Israelis or Americans, there would be uproar and rightly
I would urge ISPs to take action against sites like this and
there can be no justification for this sort of video game, I
hope the person who made this game thinks again.
