Washington: A group of gun enthusiasts have decided to fight against a new line of pork-laced bullets manufactured by a US company.
The group is angered about the idea of an Islamic cultural center opening near Ground Zero.
According to the Huffington Post, South Fork Industries, based in Idaho, however has claimed its ammunition, called Jihawg Ammo, is a defensive deterrent to those who violently act in the name of Islam.
The company stated that the pork-infused paint made the ammo 'haram', or unclean, and therefore will keep a Muslim who's shot with one of the bullets from entering paradise.
The company, in a press release, said that with Jihawg Ammo, one can not only kill an Islamist terrorist, but can also send him to hell.
The company's website called the bullets as 'Peace Through Pork' and a 'peaceful and natural deterrent to radical Islam'.
However, Shannon Dunn, assistant professor of religious studies at Gonzaga University, said the company's concept is based on an inaccurate understanding of the Quran.
Nevertheless, the ammo has plenty of supporters, with more than 4,300 people liking it on Facebook, the report added.
