ISIS Bans Nike Products: Islamic State Group Deems Sneakers, Clothing By American Sportswear Company Sinful

“The Islamic State group has banned Nike clothing, sneakers and other products because the pronunciation of the American sportswear company’s name is similar to Arabic words that have sexual undertones and are deemed sinful under Shariah law, Syrian activist group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently said Thursday. ISIS warned anyone living within its self-declared caliphate who is caught selling, buying or wearing Nike products will be punished by whipping, imprisonment or paying a fine.”
