Iranian firm comes up with first Islamic doll - Fatima

By Super Admin

Tel Aviv, Nov 20 (ANI): An Iranian firm has come up with the first Islamic doll that it has named as Fatima.

In the past there had been two dolls, 'Sarah' and 'Dara', which were supposed to be Iran's answer to Barbie and Ken, but they failed to impress the local market.

And so Fatima, a doll which has a more Islamic visage, was created.

A representative of Fam, the doll's manufacturer, said that Fatima was meant to battle against the "enemies' cultural invasion" of Iran.

"By creating Barbie and marketing it, westerners are encouraging bad veiling and not wearing the hijab; all of these factors led us to take it as our duty to present Islamic dolls to the market," Ynetnews quoted Hossein Seresht as saying. (ANI)
