Innocence of Muslims or is it Ignorance of Muslims?

By Sufia

The Nakoula Basseley anti Islam movie is designed to stir trouble, both for Muslims and others who do not agree. It could be called a piece of poison, designed for inflaming hot heads against the Muslim world, and deserves to be treated with contempt for what it sets out to do.

 Innocence of Muslims or is it Ignorance of Muslims?

It is a hoax movie which deliberately goes completely against Islam and our last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H). The movie titled as Innocence of Muslims created a fine storm in the youth of the Muslim world. The reaction towards disrespect of Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) by the Muslims was a completely disastrous situation. It resulted in the killing of Americans in Libya, as the Americans were killed in Libya by a Muslim group as a reaction to the anti American sentiment.

Part of the aftermath of this film has resulted in the killing of foreigners in Libya - Muslims

Including four Americans and J. Christopher, the American Ambassador. An extremist Muslim group was involved in attacking the embassy for United States of America. They burned down the building of embassy and opened fire on the American staff in embassy in Libya. According to the resources the malicious video had erroneous and evil low level stuff. The film was made in an attempt to ridicule the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H).

This is yet another blasphemous attack on Muslims and their faith or beliefs. Apropos, the blasphemy law prohibits anyone to spread hate against any religions or be a cause of grief and disrupt between the followers of any religion. However, some the extremist groups of Muslims protested and gave strong reactions against the makers of the movie and actors and whatever that was being shown in the name movie or entertainment.

Their intolerance is obvious and they have started protesting – Muslims

These Muslims, although have all rights to protest and defend their beliefs and religion are accused of spreading terrorism in the region. United States of America protests against the killing of innocent Americans in Libya but at the same time have failed to ban or put an end to such activities by extremist anti Islam groups in America.

Innocence of Muslims by Nakoula Basseley was released on 9th September 2012. With the release of this movie Muslims around the world started showing their reaction and anger. Muslims in Libya burnt American Embassy and killed four Americans. Americans were behind the floating of this anti Islamic movie. Morally and ethically it is very wrong to target a certain religion and its followers. The video has been made with intention to spread hatred for Muslims and Islam. Islam is the religion of peace and does not permit such things and instructs its followers to respect other religions and all the prophets including Jesus and Moses.

In reaction to this disrespectful act and attack on beliefs the Muslim countries have blocked all those websites from their internet servers where this anti Islam movie called Innocence of Muslims was floated in reaction, and probably quite rightly so, to stop any more hatred and distrust being born and to try to stem the disrespect shown towards their religion.

Muslims have boycotted all American brands and chain stores available in their respective countries, again a punishment for innocent people on both sides of the debate. We cannot call it ignorance of Muslims now. They reacted dramatically at the launch of this low quality, immoral and low ethical movie erroneously, when ignoring it would have been a far greater punishment to the makers. Anger, hatred and adversity towards Americans should not be thought of as a symbol of love and respect towards their Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H).

This was a reaction in result of perceived blasphemy. Muslims love their Allah Almighty and His last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H). Disrespect and making fun of any religion by anyone cannot be tolerated and ignored, but there are better ways to do this instead of bloodshed.
