Pyjamas and swimwear With Quranic Verses.:An apparel website called The Playmate Stores had been selling pyjamas and swimwear for women with Quranic verses on them
The Playmate Stores’ decision to list pyjamas and swimsuits was first noticed by a TikTok user, named Abu Toz, who is an American Muslim, according to a report on the Singapore news website, AsiaOne.
In the TikTok video, that was posted on 19 June,user @__abu.toz__ pointed out the Quranic verses printed on some pyjamas and one-piece swimsuits on the Playmate online store.
He showed how the online store had listings such as “Islamic Cami Pajama Set” while other lists showed several one-piece swimwear.
In a caption superimposed against the listings’ screenshot in the video, the man wrote, “please we need to do something about this, they are using Quran prints on bikinis now!! And disrespecting Islam”.
The online store is using a Singapore address on its website while simultaneously stating on its Facebook page that they are based in the US. The Facebook page, however, has no posts on its feed.
After being called out, the Playmate Stores issued an apology
It added they have removed “all products regarding Muslims” from their website.
According to a report in Mothership, the apology from The Playmate stores came after a man in Singapore emailed the TikTok video in a complaint to the online store’s support team.
“I am appalled that such pieces are sold within a country that is full of diversity,” he wrote in the email.
“On behalf of our company, we want to sincerely apologise for this matter. We have removed all products regarding Muslims from our store. We understand that our team made the mistake of accidentally selling these products in the sleepwear category,” the support team wrote back.
The Playmate Stores stated that they “always respect all religions in general and Islam in particular”.
