One Muslim's perspective on the Banning of Noah

By Haroon Moghul

"The best way to write an article about a movie you haven’t seen is to approach it obliquely. The movie would be Noah, starring Russell Crowe; the approach would be iconoclasm. Unsurprisingly, the film’s been banned in several Muslim-majority countries, though not as many as you’d think. Then again, in light of how many Muslims in many such countries want to watch Russell Crowe embody a significant Muslim Prophet, such a ban may well be superfluous beyond the oil-rich Gulf.

"But why was it banned? What does it say about Islam? ..."

The man sounds reasonable but he does reveal the blasphemous teachings of Islam:- that Islam came first - that man strayed from it, and that Mohammed was sent to put things right and convert everyone back to it.

... back to it or else, which is what many reluctant Muslim coverts found out the hard way when Mohammed died and they tried to leave Islam, only to be killed by the prophet's first convert, Abu Bakr.

It's not an option in Islam to ignore anything that non-Muslims do. They want to dominate, they are intolerant, and they expect non-Muslims to follow their rules too.
