This is incredibly entertaining news from Proton, they've never failed in creating jokes while speaking seriously. This again proves Proton strength in car assessories industry. What a pity for their tax payers to fund such program.
you've gotta love advertising...
Why even bother with Headscarf Holders?Edit
I thought Muslim Women weren't allowed to drive in those countries? ;) 126.96.36.199 15:32, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
Hmm, what design features would make a car uniquely islamic? Minarets?
Possible Islamic Car featuresEdit
When we talk about an Islamic car, it doesn't mean that the car should look like a mosque. What they really mean is to make cars to have convenient features for Muslims, including prayer time reminder, a Qibla direction compass, etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:50, 22 November 2007 (UTC) . But then it would be just a name sake Islamic car since all these accessories and facilities could be easily made available into any Christian or Jew or Hindu car. Subject is not so loud as it sounds like. It doesn't mean that the car is only applicable to Muslim people. PROTON is comply to international standard and concurrent to Malcom Bricklin, USA standard for safety and legastative requirement as well as it is not against Islamic rules and regulation. The car is proven as high quality and for example the NEO PROTON LOTUS special edition had become World Rally Championship in 2010. The taste of this exicement driving machine is for all.
I'm shocked and impressed that no-one's piped in with a suicide bomber jibe. At the same time, I'm a little disappointed, because I really wanted to feel morally superior for a minute there. 184.108.40.206 15:49, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Nothing to be proud of, they are not making a car for the physically challenged this is indeed another step of the so called saviors of Islam towards getting aloof from the rest of the world. This venture also aims at merchandising Islam. Would there be any relief for a secular Muslim from these rabble rousers in disguise. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Madhu Balan (talk • contribs) 12:04, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
To say is one thing. To do it is another. I wouldn't pin my hopes on the prospect of the car even rolling off the assembly line because some radical figure(s) could end up condemning the crap out of it for straying away from the true purpose of the religion or serving as a cheap ploy to earn an extra buck from the devout. Besides, will a kaffir be able to buy one of these cars? What will stop them from trashing it upon purchase and posting the video on YouTube? This will be very interesting. - 220.127.116.11 02:46, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
