The coca cola logo has been the same since its invention in the very early 1900s.
Unless Coke was an anti-islamic company even back in those early days, I think this is probably just a coincidence.
The typeface used, known as Spencerian script, was developed in the mid 19th century and was the dominant form of formal handwriting in the United States during that period.
There are some consumer boycotts of Coca-Cola in Arab countries due to Coke's early investment in Israel during the Arab League boycott of Israel (this contrasts sharply to Pepsi which stayed out of Israel)
It's ludicrous to imagine far back in 1889 a back-room chemist and his partner were evilly plotted to work a hidden anti-Muslim statement into a soft-drink label. Those early Coke men had no reason to suppose that their concoction would someday come to be marketed internationally, in far-flung lands they'd never themselves visit, or that the dashed-off script of one of the would continue to adorn the product more than a century after it was first penned. Yet to give the rumor any credence, one has to believe all of that.

If Coca-Cola Company is anti something, I will think there are anti government more then anything else.
This kind of multinational company has no racial, culture or religion discriminations policies. They basically want to sales they poison to every human on the planet, so for them to hide a hate message in to their logo will be in contrary to their greed policy.
Decades back a famous cigarette brand was targeted because people thought to have found hidden KK on their cigarette packet.

In May, 1886, Coca Cola was invented by Doctor John Pemberton a pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia. John Pemberton concocted the Coca Cola formula in a three legged brass kettle in his backyard. The name was a suggestion given by John Pemberton's bookkeeper Frank Robinson.
Being a bookkeeper, Frank Robinson also had excellent penmanship. It was he who first scripted "Coca Cola" into the flowing letters which has become the famous logo of today. The soft drink was first sold to the public at the soda fountain in Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta on May 8, 1886.
