A few days ago my sister emailed me this picture.
From the picture, I can deduce that the men were sujud, doing prayer as on jemaah formation. The style of the turban looks like they are of Balkan or Turkey origins.
But wearing 'Coke'kopiah and dress?
Technically, its okay to wear a shirt emblazoned with Coke or Pepsi or whatever brand while doing prayer. But I feel that Coke make fun of Muslims doing prayer. If the point of Coke advertising is to show that Coke is revered and accepted by all cultures, I believe that this advertisement would generate indignation among Muslims.
The meaning of Coca-Cola.
I dont drink Coke anyway. Or any other fizzy drink.
Its full of sugar, has no nutritional value and grossly overpriced. I drink water or milk any day.
Why would you buy overpriced Coke when you can buy water? Pure water if its served chilled taste good.
Another thing is that sugar is not good for you.

On the subject of boycott, I saw this report in Malaysiakini that there is an email going around calling for boycott of Hindu restaurants in Malaysia because they sprinkled stuff on food. Or was it on their shop floor?
Wasnt the purpose of them sprinkling the stuff is to get blessing from their gods?
Let me remind my fellow Muslims to eat what is halal and avoid what is haram. And if you are not sure, its best to leave it.
Does this mean I am calling for boycott of Hindu restaurant? No.
