HOLY ‘H’ BATMAN!
This is the Muslim sect that apologists love to promote as the ‘moderates’ of Islam.
Muslim group’s fury over ‘sacred symbol’ in Jagger girl’s perfume advert: Followers protest outside Harrods over campaign they say ‘degrades’ one of religion’s holiest signs
Controversial: The Just Cavalli campaign sees Georgia May Jagger, 22, with an ornate H-like symbol on her wrist, and has prompted demonstrations by Sufi Muslims in London
- Roberto Cavalli has been using sign in his campaign since 2011
- H-like symbol seen on skin of Georgia May Jagger in perfume ad
- Sufi Muslims say it is the symbol used by them to refer to Allah
- Thousands have protested in London, Germany and Los Angeles
Gazing suggestively at the camera, Georgia May Jagger’s modelling campaign for Just Cavalli perfume certainly looks provocative.
However, it’s not the 22-year-old’s sultry pose that has triggered controversy, but the H-like symbol on her wrist.
The advert featuring the model daughter of Mick Jagger, part of a campaign by Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli, has been singled out by followers of a branch of Islam, who said it ‘cheapens’ and ‘degrades’ one of its holiest symbols.
The pictures of Georgia May – daughter of the Rolling Stones frontman, 70, and model Jerry Hall, 57 – have prompted demonstrations by Sufi Muslims in London, outside Harrods, as well as in Dusseldorf, Germany, and Los Angeles, since they were first released in the middle of last year.
The campaign – put together by Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli to promote a designer fragrance – shows Miss Jagger with an ornate H-like symbol on her skin.
