Washington, February 28: The Islamic symbol used in the online version of Katy Perry music video for 'Dark Horse' has been removed after an online petition claimed it was offensive to the Muslim religion.
In the Change.org petition, Shazad Iqbal had cited that in the video, a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant forming the word 'Allah' which is the Arabic word for God, and had demanded that the video be removed from YouTube, Fox News reported.
Iqbal had added that blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, as Perry, who appears to be representing an opposition of God, is seen engulfing the believer and the word God in flames.
Due to the petition, which was signed by 60,000 people, the pendant has now been erased from the video. (ANI)
