A Muslim cleric in India's most populous state Uttar Pradesh, also home to the largest Moslem contingent of 20m people, has accused the Coca-Cola logo of being blasphemous to Islam. Kalbe Jawad, claims the mirror image of the Coca-Cola logo reads "La Mohammed, La Mecca" in Arabic, which, roughly translated, means there is no Mohammed and no Mecca (Mohammed is the revered prophet of Muslims, and Mecca is the holy site of their pilgrimage).
