This type of censorship is very common in the Middle East. Bare limbs of women and photos of piglets are promptly made halal with a black marker or sticker. Earlier the same cereal box was painstakingly plastered with a shapeless sticker of red overcoat/abaya stuck on the woman’s body that was otherwise in a bathing suit. I should point out that this packaging is already tailor-made for the ME. The same cereal box in the UK has a woman in a bikini.
I never made much of it until my seven year old son pointed out this morning that some parts of her body were missing (!), but instead of trying to remove the stickers, he brought in her coloured markers set and began to give her limbs over the stickers!
What do you think as a Muslim woman – do you think this kind of bowdlerization in the technologically advanced 21st Century is good/healthy or silly/unnecessary? What type of signals does it give to children, do you think?
