A Mumbai-based Sunni Muslim organisation has approached the Union Home Minister and the Iranian Consulate in India seeking a ban on the latest Majid Majidi film Muhammad: Messenger of God, calling it “blasphemous for more than one reason”.
In a memorandum sent to Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the Raza Academy has also sought “legal action” against composer A R Rahman, who has given music for the film, for “hurting the sentiments of Indian Muslims”.
The film by the renowned director is the first of a trilogy on the life of Muhammad, and shows his childhood and adolescence till he becomes a prophet.
After its world premiere on August 27 at the Montreal Film Festival, Muhammad: Messenger of God opened in Iran simultaneously in 57 screens but it is yet to release in other parts of the world.
