According to some superstitions, it’s a bad idea to create a representation of a human face. And thus we have these dolls for the more unfortunate children of the world:
“There is an Islamic ruling which forbids the depiction of facial features of any kind and that includes pictures, sculptures and, in this case, dolls.
“I spoke to a religious scholar in Leicester who guided me through what was and what was not permissible when producing the product.
“The Deeni Doll has no face on it whatsoever and is Shariah compliant.”
The doll itself retails at £25 and, whilst it may not be the first of its kind in the world, it is thought to be the only one produced to such a high quality.
Ye gods. Sure, what do kids indoctrinated into a dehumanizing belief system really need? *Toys* that dehumanize them even more. If a child is taught that it is wrong for a doll to have facial features, it won’t be long before they come to understand that showing their own facial features is wrong. And thus they accept covering their own features and suppressing their individuality.
A common trope in sci-fi and fantasy is to have the massed forces of the enemy wearing uniforms that disguise their features – think “Imperial Stormtroopers.” One purpose of this is that if the enemies all look exactly the same, especially if they don’t have recognizable faces, then you can mow them down in industrial numbers and not give a damn. Because by eliminating their individuality, you are eliminating what makes them human. They are no more than robots made out of meat.
So… that’s what these jackholes are doing to their own children.
Oh, well. At least this idiocy provides an opportunity for mockery for the rest of us. By leaving the “faces” blank, they become the perfect canvases for “improvements.”
