Chevrolet cars insult Egyptian Muslims

One of the spiritual leaders of Egypt issued a fatwah (law, regulations) which banned Muslims from driving Chevrolet vehicles. According to the new law, Muslims must not drive Chevrolet cars because the logo of the company is a Christian cross.

The religious law, which bans the use of the cars made by one of the world's best-known automotive company, raised many eyebrows in Egypt. Many Egyptians found the new fatwah "strange".

Amr Adib, a popular TV host, made jokes about the new law in his program. The Chevrolet brand exists for 100 years, but the Christian cross on the logo was noticed only in 2012, he said. Egypt, the host added, had a great deal of more important problems to deal with.

It is worthy of note that there are several theories about the origin of the Chevrolet "cross." One of them says that the designer of the logo was inspired with the pattern on the wallpaper of one of Paris hotels. Another one says that the author of the logo borrowed the idea from an American coal company. Some people say that the designer tried to make a logo that would look like a bow-tie.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
