British film about early Islam banned for “hurting the feelings of Muslims”.

British film The Lady of Heaven was banned in Morocco after Islamic authorities condemned it for presenting a version of Islamic history they disagreed with and “offending the feelings of Muslims”.

The film, which has already been canceled by the Cineworld chain and a number of individual cinemas in the UK over fears of violence at the hands of Muslim protesters, features the daughter of the Islamic prophet Mohammed (Muhammad) and was produced by Malik Shlibak, a Shia Muslim.

Shia, who follow the Shia sect of Islam, and Sunni, who make up the majority of Muslims in the West and around the world, divided for a thousand years amid a dispute over who should succeed Muhammad as leader of the Islamic community, or caliph – and this one Strife seems to be at the root of hostility The Lady of Heaven even now.

Indeed, the Supreme Ulema Council of Morocco, chaired by the country’s autocratic ruler and rumored descendant of the Islamic prophet King Mohammed VI, began (Pictured above) his sentencing statement with an indictment The Lady of Heaven the “blatant falsification of established facts in Islamic history”.

The following allegations were made against the film and its creator:

1. The person who wrote the film belongs to a Shia movement. Because of his extremist ideas, he was stripped of his Kuwaiti citizenship.

2. The film is a blatant distortion of facts and contains an abominable act that cannot be accepted by Muslims, namely for the incarnation of the Prophet peace be upon him.

3. The film dared, with vile bias, to use the persona of Fatima Zahra, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, the daughter of the Prophet, for purposes contrary to the spirit of the religion and the reality of the story.

4- The high rank of Fatima Zahra, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, does not need to resort to false accusations to speak about her in the eyes of all Muslim men and women [sic].

5- The slander of Sidna Abi Bakr, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, which was the subject of the greatest testimonies of the Prophet, is part of the scandals in this film.

6- Those behind this film strive for fame and sensationalism, promoting its production and reaching the largest possible number of viewers by hurting Muslims’ feelings and fomenting religious sensibilities.

The BBC reports that the relevant authorities in Morocco have banned The Lady of Heaven directly as a result of this conviction.

“Morocco reveals which side the #free speech debate they endure,” Shlibak commented on the censorship of his film in a social media post.

“Not a bit shocked, with their notorious severe persecution of their Shia population,” he accused them.
