Furious Muslims have blasted adult shop Ann Summers for selling a blow-up male doll called MUSTAFA SHAG.

They complained that the novelty sex toy insults the Prophet Muhammad who also has the title al-Mustafa.

The High Street chains jokey £15 mustachioed doll has a 7in manhood and is targeted at hen parties.

But the Muslim Association based at Manchesters Central Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre branded him obnoxious.

Yesterday a spokesman said: This is the name of our Prophet and its very upsetting. This thing should be banned.

In a letter to the store, the Association said: You have no idea how much hurt, anguish and disgust this obnoxious phrase has caused to Muslims. We are asking you to have our Most Revered Prophets name Mustafa and the afflicted word shag removed.

Last night Ann Summers said: If anyone has a better name, please let us know. Well happily change it.

The row follows global furore over cartoons which depicted Muhammad as a terrorist.
