Man Behind LittleBigPlanet Song Says Qur'an Quotes Are "Quite Normal"

Illustration for article titled Man Behind LittleBigPlanet Song Says Quran Quotes Are Quite Normal

Toumani Diabate is the man behind Tapha Niang, the song that caused the LittleBigPlanet delay. Diabate, from Mali, is a Muslim. And can't see anything wrong with including sections from Islam's holy book in his music.

It's quite normal to play music and be inspired by the words of the Prophet Mohammed. It's my way to attract and inspire people towards Islam.


Wonder if Sony thought about that side of the coin before hitting the big red panic button? Using Qur'an quotes in music "quite normal" []

When I heard this news the other day about a game having to be recalled over one song, I just shook my head. Really, muslims? I know it's a few, but these few people make this religion look terrible!

Why don't you mute your game when you hear this Qur'an song being played? Get over it! The Qur'an mentions nothing about video games, so why don't you stay away from video games entirely?

At some point, someone's going to be offended by something that's put in a game. Even LittleBigPlanet, though? Come on! It's the happiest looking game! Do you have to nitpick on this, too? Can't the people who spoke out on this content just be happy that there is an alternative to M rated games?
