All the turmoil in the middle east seems to be overflowing into the world of video games. Shack News has reported that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map 'Favela' and the re-release of 'Favela' in a Modern Warfare 3 DLC has been pulled from normal rotation for a texture "mishap" that quotes the phrase "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty,". This isn't an inflammatory remark in unto itself. However the phrase's location in the level itself has been called into question. Some people apparently found it offensive that Allah was mentioned in a picture frame located in the level's bathroom.

Apparently mentioning Allah in a restroom unintentionally is more offensive then slaughtering civilians in an airport. Go figure.

I just know they wouldn't give two shakes of a dogs tail if a Christian made the same video. But since now the threat of violence by a few of an over all peaceful religion can now intimidate the masses we have this. I wonder when the line will be drawn.

I don't hold anything against Muslims at all. But this "be politically correct or die" mantra the few extremists have needs to go. I personally would have left the texture in. Truly faithful Muslims that are confident in their religion will not care. I can bet money on this. The rest will be pissed off about something, be it this or something else. Who cares. Also Activision just went down another notch IMO.

They created a game that plays on mans most primal instinct next to procreation. Fighting. No amount of education and intelligence will over come that.

Its cowardice. They should shut down the servers on Saturday and Sunday also. That's offensive to other religions. Why is one religion respected and not all? No. Activation is just scared they will get blown up if they do not bow down to threats.

While taking a shit you yell out "Oh Allah!" "Oh Allah!" and it is offensive? But you blow up 300 people and that is just fine?

I would like to see video games go back to a more "science fiction" tone and take out the "Reality" tone Games. Seems to me we have enough to see on that front.

can you give a reason why this is ridiculous for you buddy?

I'm a muslim, in our faith we are not allowed to imagine, drawing or etc name of Allah S.W.T and our prophet Muhammad S.A.W on wrong place, despite that's only the text . but unfortunately in my believe, the restroom on this game was disgusting and we are not allowed to do that. that's our faith on of course my faith too..

we just allowed to place it the text name of Allah in good place, ex mosque , living room , and it must clean that's the point. not in the restroom, because however clean a restroom I believe you and me do nature call there, and that is :)..you know it right.

I find some games put arab text in their story, but that's not a name of God. just a letter that's ok.

It's just our faith buddy, I think and I believe Infinity Ward and Activision do this, because there are respect to any religion faith, don't we?

sorry for my bad english :)..peace.

So you miss the point. You DO NOT HAVE TO BUY it! Thing is once a religion or belief is PUSH onto me I tend to PUSH back.
I am sick of some one telling me what I can see what I can write what I can say. Get over it! I AM FREE!!!!! Free to write whatever I want say what I want do what I want. If that is offensive to you LOOK AWAY! Walk away, Don't buy it. That is the point. This is about how one religion is PUSHING there beliefs onto me through my games NOW!!!?

What about all the offensive things that are said with Christs name in videos games? Devil worshiping and up side down crosses and what not? THATS all ok. No one says anything. Kids getting killed. Servers running on the Sabbath? This is ok? Why does Islam deserve a special pass?

Yup, because that's name of God of One religion...

I don't know, how if you're a muslim too, or a christian or budhaism or any other religion found name of your God in a game on wrong place... just maybe, some reaction came too, just maybe..

That message can be created by infinity ward itself just to take more fame on the religious countries.
(in fact Infinity Ward has nothing to do with this, they got payed from some other company :))
This is what happened:
A guy from Infinity Ward pays to someone who knows arabic.
The guy who knows arabic makes the video.
Infinity Ward pays to websites so they show the video.
(and this is 100% true because i dont believe techpowerup guys are fools to put this kind of news so they got payed a hefty sum of $$)
It turns out Muslim religion gets more famous... as it always been like that
End of the story.

So you can Spell Allah and talk about Allah on this forum? I think this is a bad thing and is not going to go well. I will play nice.;)

My philosophy, if it is offending don't look/watch/play/go do it.....

Seriously, they need to stop giving rubbish like this press. They make religion actually seem important....
And it is this press that encourages them to go out of their way to fuck up everything else for the rest of the regular people.

Yup, because that's name of God of One religion...

I don't know, how if you're a muslim too, or a christian or budhaism or any other religion found name of your God in a game on wrong place... just maybe, some reaction came too, just maybe..
They do it all the time man. ALL THE TIME. No one cares. Only reason this happened is because of the violent extremists. Do I find some things in games offensive. Sure I do. That's been shown in tons of posts Ive made. But I refuse to give a special pass to anyone based off of threats.

With that being said we have a LOT of Muslim members on TPU. A few I play games with when time allows. Respect between us has ALWAYS been a priority of mine. As a religious man myself I UNDERSTAND where you are coming from. However confidence in your faith allows such trespasses by non-believers. Follow?

Ok, so I come from a Muslim home, but my father always made the point clear. Religion is optional if you want and feel the need to pursue it go ahead no one is stopping you. Now this is tasteless sure I think if we hung a picture of Jesus in the bathroom it be just as tasteless. Now what these people fail to see , is this was a mere accident from what I can tell. No one in their right mind would go ahead unless they are hateful and want to do something like this. I think Activision really went out of their way to address this issue , and Kudos for them for respecting. Now my biggest problem with Activision if they would stop making those shitting games than we would be really good lol...thats my only issue here. :toast:

So you miss the point. You DO NOT HAVE TO BUY it! Thing is once a religion or belief is PUSH onto me I tend to PUSH back.
I am sick of some one telling me what I can see what I can write what I can say. Get over it! I AM FREE!!!!! Free to write whatever I want say what I want do what I want. If that is offensive to you LOOK AWAY! Walk away, Don't buy it. That is the point. This is about how one religion is PUSHING there beliefs onto me through my games NOW!!!?
Owh sorry, I'm not try too telling you.. I'm just share an info of our faith and that's maybe Activision and Infinity ward do this cause this concern about faith of one religion.
for sure I don't know what all behind this, maybe a terroris call to boot of them :D, just a joke dude.

I don't know dude, it just my opinion and I'm a muslim and I'm share just how far I know.
and I never say that's offesinve, that's just not inappropriate in our faith :)

Yeah everybody are free as long they responsible for what they doing, 100% agreed with you, but I guess you have a faith too don't you..and I believe no body who have faith want to see some body try to screw it. :)
