Proposals for Eid Doodles

post by Bites85

After pointing out missing doodles for Muslim community, we got tremendous response from our readers and fellow bloggers; who have joined hands with us to raise voice over an issue that was neglected by Google so far!

Now it’s time to unveil the Eid-ul-Fitr Google Doodle. This Doodle is created by my friend Khayyam Shahzad, a designer from Awan Soft This is his way of contributing towards the cause. We thank him for his efforts. Below is the Doodle designed by him

There are other Doodle’s coming from fellow designers across the Muslim world, that shows the concerns of Muslim community for getting the header spot on Goole’s home page. Here is one of Doodle that is designed by aLee.

Meanwhile we have also sent these doodles to Mr. Badar Khusnood, Country Representative, Google, lets see if he considers it.

We want your all your support, on the issue and remember don’t forget to give your feedback by leaving a comment below!

  • Struggle for a good cause!

    Best of luck to Bites85 and all those who think its time for Muslims to get some global appreciation.

    I hope Google really considers this.

  • awesome dear, both are nice and excellent work as our doodles.. I wonder how much time no google needs to approve them.

  • Both logos are looking great, especially first one. But there is some problem in first one. It does not fully represent Muslims all over the world. Two characters wearing “shalwar kameez” make it more like a logo for Pakistani Muslims. Still perfect for Pakistani domain

  • @Riz Thanks man.Basically it signifies muslims wearing shalwar kameez,and it is known all over world..muslims usually wear it..and got the chand and its good… so thanks for stoping by and commenting

  • It’s great that you’re getting recognition for your cause.
    While, at the same time, I do not appreciate you spamming the link to this post as a comment on a totally unrelated article at Redmond Pie.

  • seriously I feel like shouting here, since the ‘smart’ admin on this site had moderated my comments on the last post for no reason. Couldn’t stand the criticism I’m sure. Better NOT spam my site again.

  • @ Imran Hussain sorry man..just wanted u to see this…was just 1 click,u could have moderated..just wanted u to have a look!

    @abbas will not happen again…

    I wonder why u guys get angry on 1 link..if comments are moderated,then dont moderate my comment…the reason is just to get you respected bloggers for a comment …for this cause,i think it should be valid… sorry guyz

  • Good to see other designers lining up to create a doodle for Eid. But as dotriz said, the first one is more focused on Pakistani’s rather than Muslims globally, plus I have seen those cartoon characters somewhere in Eid Greeting cards, correct me if I’m wrong.

    I think Google, if considered to use any artwork, will ensure its originality and uniqueness.

    Anyways, Good to see some Muslims uniting for a cause. Hope we are heard..


  • well said Bites85. I was just writing something similar. Where is the LUV in our community? When BBC or Sky pick this up as a nice little story from the Muslim world of Tech I’m sure you’ll be begging to comment on it. MUCH anger when you have to deal with thousands of spambots everyday anyways. Chill out dude…moderate if you have a MAJOR problem with it.



  • @ aLee i thought you would also write a follow up article,but you not even responded to my email which i wrote you 4 days back…well yeah its good to see all together… but you no what Google would never ever take a doodle from any user..they would rather make it there own..but shalwar kameez represents very big muslim community,its not the clothes…its just the essence..

  • The first logo is signifying universal brotherhood…hugging is a Muslim tradition…night shows that crescent is just seen and the two Muslims wish each other Eid…and the minaret shows the Eid prayer…Perfect for Eid-ul-Fitr i think…

  • @Bites85 Which email jiger? I haven’t got any email from you or probably I missed it as SPAM. Are you talking about the long comment you posted on itsaLee? including various links and was posted on an irrelevant topic..  

    Plus Shalwar kameez is Pakistan’s national dress so it mainly focuses on Pakistanis, but again a good effort. And yeah, what about those cartoon characters, are they custom?

  • @aLee yeah i also left a long comment…from which you got to know about my this revolution…it is national dress,but if i would have got the arabic wearing long dress,then you would have said its for arabic i think its good..ya custom,and also remember Google believes in open source web !

  • @Bites85 Nopes, I got to know about this from Xubair. I would have loved to share an article on this topic, but I thought I should go ahead and create a doodle myself. 

      Anyways, its good to know that those Cartoon Characters are custom.

  • I can provide the logo with a white background if the OP needs, coz manually changing the background color has distorted the original image a bit.

  • I liked the second one….but all it will bring fruit when Google will actually put one of them on Eid day!

  • @ aLee

    Oh u meant this..well i think the blue is quite dark..makes the letters dull. but it is good..

  • Nice efforts by both designers, I think the first one better represents the Eid celebrating occasion. Well, this is a great initiative, I appreciate your efforts for this cause, Google may have hundreds of designers and it could come up with several stellar doodle designs.

    Certainly, this is a step forward towards mutual love and fraternity amongst people of different religions by sharing each other’s happiness. Google company should whole heartedly accept your proposals at once, and we hope so.

  • Imran Hussain,

    What an attitude, huh..go get some patience. If this wasn’t relevant on your blog, your are doing the same here…Spamming this thread.

  • @ Ahmed Iqbal Well thanks alot. My own blog is under process.Will compile all the articles and every thing there,with some new things..Keep checking these comments ok .

  • @Bites85 Badar khushnood also had a reply for your earlier post “Google is Biased”.. Ive written a detailed post about that on itsaLee. He also confirmed the two mascots used in your proposal are not an original content. And if you want, you can contact him through his linkedin profile.

  • Omfg! the first doodle is a pure copy paste thing from an e-card :D lol how can you guys steal so bluntly?
