So someone on the Indonesia reddit page noticed this and made a post about it.

Apparently the words on colossus’s shirt is a Quranic verse which states that “Muslims should not take the Jews and Christians as their allies/friends”. Indonesian translation of the verse states that “Muslims should not appoint the Jews and Christians as their leader

I initially made a comment on reddit because I didn’t believe it was true but I looked it up and its true, Syef even confirmed it on his Facebook page. Though some are saying he deleted those comments.

Their are screenshots of it on the reddit page.

I can’t believe the artist used X-Men of all books to include this message.

This is sickening. Like, actually sickening. On a X-Men comic where the team leader is Jewish.

I can only hope Marvel and their editors didn’t know his views or realize what the numbers mean . Now I wonder if his other works have this shit on them

He’s using the X-Men to promote his hate. It’s not an in-joke, filler, or humor. It’s damaging to the characters/story once people find out. It’s not even like a bad guy is wearing the shirt, it’s Colossus.

You can argue that 212 could be a coincidence. Just like you can’t jump to the conclusion of an artist/writer being a Neo Nazi because they used 14.

Even so, if it was only the 212 it would just mean the artist support a rally in his homeland. But the QS 5:51? That’s awful. I may not be Indonesian or Muslim, but it really irritates me that a hateful message is being ‘cheekily’ sneaked in an X-men book as a fan of their message of tolerance. Marvel should fire the artist for this.
