Peppa Pig a corrupting influence for Muslim children, say leaders
by Geoff Chambers and Mark Schliebs
Australian Islamic leaders have urged parents to embrace religious cartoons, including an alternative to Peppa Pig set in a "predominately Muslim town", to avoid youth being corrupted by mainstream children's shows.
Sheik Shady Alsuleiman, the head of the Australian National Imams Council, has urged followers to favour programs espousing Islamic "principles, ethics and values".
The council has thrown its support behind One4Kids, a western Sydney company producing children's shows with Islamic themes. A fundraising campaign has been launched to fund Barakah Hills — an Islamic show pitched as an "alternative" so Muslim children don't have to watch Peppa Pig.
