Row over children’s program Fireman Sam ‘stepping on Koran’

What’s there to apologise? Muslim urinate on Christian symbols, openly refer to Hindus, Christians, Jews as filthy and ridicule them and their faith. If they cannot respect anyone, no one needs to respect them in return.

An episode of ‘Fireman Sam’ has been pulled as it appears to show a character stepping on a page of the Quran.

Episode seven, in the ninth series of the long-running animation, first aired in October 2014 on Channel 5, but it was only on Tuesday that the discovery was made and flagged on social media.

The episode depicts a character called Elvis carrying a tray of drinks and slipping on a pile of papers.

As they fly into the air one is briefly shown covered in Arabic text, identified as Surah Mulk (67), verses 13-26.

The error was only spotted this week.

A spokesperson for the production company behind the episode, HIT Entertainment, said: “It has been brought to our attention that in an episode of Fireman Sam (Series 9, Episode 7), an image of the Qur’an is briefly depicted.

“The page was intended to show illegible text and we deeply regret this error. We sincerely apologise for any distress or offence it may have caused.

“We will no longer be working with the animation studio responsible for this mistake. In addition, we are taking immediate action to remove this episode from circulation and we are reviewing our content production procedures to ensure this never happens again. Again, we apologise unreservedly to our viewers.”


According to social media users one page shows verses 13-26 of chapter 67 of the Koran

  1. Maybe it wasnt a mistake.
    I have a koran in my bathroom instead of toilet roll. Visitors love it. Halfway through already, so I will have to get another one soon.

    • I assume that you are talking about the page which is on full display. If it has been photoshopped it doesn’t matter because no muslim would admit to photoshopping it and also the picture, actual or photoshopped is now out there so it will spread like wildfire around the Islamic world and with no apology the resultant riots and murders that will take place.
