Iran makes threatening noises over BBC documentary, The Life of Muhammad
ALL you need to know about the inventor of Islam – a blood-thirsty, pig-headed monster called Mohammed or Muhammad, if you prefer – is contained between the covers of Abdulla Aziz’s brilliant comic book depiction of the “prophet”.
But a far more deferential depiction of a lunatic who believed that hell was mainly populated by women, and that a group of Israelites had been turned into pigs and monkeys, is about to be unleashed on BBC 2 viewers.
The Life of Muhammad, according to this report, was commissioned by its first Muslim head of BBC religion programming, Aaquil Ahmed, and is narrated by Rageh Omar, a correspondent for Al-Jazeera English.
Despite the fact that the BBC has bent over backwards not to ruffle Islamic feathers – no images of the madman, for example, are featured in the three-part documentary – feathers have indeed been all mussed up in Iran.
The Minister of Cultural and Islamic Guidance, Mohammad Hosseini, Â has attacked the series, saying the “enemy” was attempting to “ruin Muslims’ sanctity”.
Speaking to Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency, the imbecile said:
The BBC’s decision to make a documentary on the life of [the] prophet Muhammad seems dubious and if our suspicions are proved to be correct, we will certainly take serious action.
What the enemy is trying to do in ruining the Muslims’ sanctity is definitely much more than causing us to react and unfortunately, some Islamic countries are not taking this issue seriously. One way to show objections is to express condemnation of the West over their despicable actions.
