He said that among the products brought to the society were a pair of shoes with the word ‘Allah' written on its soles and a piece of cloth printed with verses from the holy Quran.

"We urge consumers, who find in the market any such products or those who have doubts over safety and hygiene standards of a certain product, to visit the society's premises. We will be on hand to provide them with comprehensive information about how to choose the right products. We will guide them through our exhibition at which some original products with their fake copies are on display and ways to differentiate them," he said.

Mr Al Katheri pointed out that the products that desecrate Islam are totally unacceptable in UAE and are mainly produced by anti-Islamic countries whose main aim is to desecrate Islam and its virtues.

"Our main objective at the society is to increase people's awareness about genuine products and warn them against the potential hazards of counterfeit products. We would also like to remind them that we are here to protect the rights of the consumers," he stressed.

He added: "As a consumer society, we guarantee the hygiene and safety of consumer products and ensure that they meet the specified standards. We are not against the production process itself, but we are against the phenomenon of producing goods that attempt to devastate any of the religions or tends to provoke consumers."
