Morocco bans movie about daughter of Prophet Mohammed

Morocco introduced Saturday it had banned a British movie concerning the daughter of the Prophet Mohammed, which Muslims in plenty of nations have denounced as blasphemous. “The Girl of Heaven” won’t obtain a license to be proven within the nation, the Moroccan Cinematographic Centre (CCM) stated in a press release issued late Saturday.

The CCM ruling bans the movie, directed by Eli King, from being screened on both a business or cultural foundation within the nation. The drama is billed as the primary movie on the lifetime of the Prophet Mohammed’s daughter Fatimah, and attracts hyperlinks between the Islamic State group within the twenty first century and historic figures in Sunni Islam.

The CCM’s ruling comes hours after Morocco’s Supreme Ulema Council, the dominion’s highest spiritual authority, firmly condemned the movie in a press release Saturday. Within the assertion, they stated the movie was a “flagrant falsification of the established information of the historical past of Islam”. The movie was launched in Britain on June 3 however after protests outdoors cinemas, the world’s second-largest cinema chain, Cineworld, cancelled all screenings. Egypt, Pakistan, Iran and Iraq are among the many nations to have denounced the movie as blasphemous. – AFP
