Activision apology for disrespecting QuranThe developer of the Call of Duty: Vanguard – Activision – has apologised to the muslims around the world following the  controversy which emerged due to the disrespectful depiction of the Holy Quran in the game. In the Vanguard’s Zombies mode, pages of the Holy Book are scattered on the floor as well as stained with blood in some cases.

The issue was first reported by a Twitter user who shared multiple screenshots showing the pages from the Quran. He asked for the issue to be fixed as soon as possible. “Brothers, I see pages of the Quran on the ground in the zombie map. I see that it should be removed as soon as possible if it is correct,” he wrote.

Soon after the backlash, Activision apologized to the Muslim community. A statement was issued on the official Twitter handle of Call of Duty Middle East.

It said in a statement;  “Call of Duty is made for everyone. There was insensitive content to the Muslim community mistakenly included last week, and has since been removed from the game. It should never have appeared as it did in-game. We deeply apologize. We are taking immediate steps internally to address the situation to prevent such occurrences in the future.”

This isn’t the first time that Call of Duty has hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community. In Modern Warfare 2, a Hadith of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was spotted in a bathroom on the multiplayer map Favela. The map was entirely removed from the game.
