Must not depict mosques?

The amusing thing is that Hagia Sophia was for centuries a great Christian church.  It was converted to use as a mosque after the fall of the Byzantine Empire.  So if the toy depicts anything, it depicts a Christian church!

Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars toy allegedly depicting  a mosque.

The critics claim that the Jabba's Palace model, part of Lego's Star Wars range, offends Muslims as it resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul - one of the world's most renowned mosques.

Members of the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria group also accused the toy manufacturer of depicting Asians as having 'deceitful and criminal personalities'.

The group has released a statement calling for an apology from Lego for its cultural insensitivity.

The Lego set is based on the home of Jabba the Hutt, a central character in the Star Wars series, who lives in a domed palace, with a separated watchtower.

I should think that there is nothing more offensive to Muslims (and everyone else) than, being a Muslim.

Muslims are after the Danes again (Lego is a Danish company).
