In response to widespread protests in the region against a YouTube video that disparages the Prophet Muhammad, Qtel is inviting Qatar’s residents to post their thoughts on “peace and morality” on a wall at Landmark Mall.
“Over the past several weeks, Qtel has heard from the local community, its employees and partners that this is an appropriate time for local people to emphasize the positive, Islamic teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) –especially good words, good actions and good morals.
The response has come following recent incidents in the international news, and a strong wish to show peoples’ admiration for the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)” says Qtel in its invite.
“Innocence of Muslims,” an amateur film that Google has refused to pull from YouTube in most countries, has sparked protests across the Muslim world for the past two weeks.
Starting tomorrow, Qtel is inviting residents to write their ideas on stickers and place them on a wall opposite the Lacoste shop in Landmark from 6pm. The campaign will run for a week.
The company says it’s expecting “a wide range of Doha’s diverse population to join in the communal spirit”, and it’s hoping for inspiring quotes and “recommendations for good moral behaviour” on the wall.
What do you think of the idea?
