A film produced in the United States denigrating the Prophet and Islam has caused widespread anger and outrage among Muslims all over the world.
The film has been made by a group of extremist Christians who are out defame Islam. The CPI(M) has strongly condemned this vicious film. Despite the world wide demand that the film be banned and strong action be taken against the producers of the film, the US government has refused to do so. Islamophobia has been growing in the West. A few years ago, a Danish newspaper published cartoons denigrating the Prophet. In that case too, no action was taken. The protests being conducted outside American embassies and Consulates around the world is, therefore, understandable. Such protests in India should be conducted peacefully.
The Indian government should ensure that the trailer of the film should not be shown in You Tube or by any other means. The Indian government should demandthat the US government take strong action against those responsible for the film.
