Shopping bags with pictures of idols

Q: “Is it commendable/closer to Taqwa, to hang food items in bags containing pictures of idols on the bags”

The question does not include buying or consuming them.

A: It is not permissible to use such bags. This is one way of promoting idolatry. Can there be any thing worse than promoting and encouraging shirk and disbelief?

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
