Films on Muhammad would be the Last Nail on the Coffin of Islam (Tulisan Murtad)

Films on Muhammad would be the Last Nail on the Coffin of Islam: By Dr. Radhasyam Brahmachari

Islam survives only by maintaining a noble and sacred aura surrounding Muhammad's person and character, which Muslims do via unbridled lying and deception to hide the truths of Muhammad's life and even by terror. When the sacred aura is dismantled through true depiction of Muhammad life in movies, Islam implodes with it... And the countdown to that has started....

What Makes the Muslim Angry?

In India, innumerable films have been made on the life and times of various Hindu religious leaders, gurus and avatars. But not even a single film has been made Hindu viewers enraged and furious. But the rage of the Muslims in response to this film suggests that the film may have portrayed the life of Muhammad in a vile, despicable and evil manner, thereby raising anger amongst Muslims around the world.Muslims around the world claim that Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, was the greatest man ever born on earth, and his life and deeds are holy and divine. So, if someone makes film on the life of Muhammad, they should be proud and hail the effort. They should be saying that even a non-Muslim, being inspired by the holiness of the Prophet, has come forward to make a film on the life and deeds of the Prophet. They should also be pleased, if the film truly represented the life of Muhammad, because such a film would impress the viewers and tempt them to embrace Islam, something they so crave for. But, on the contrary, the film “Innocence of Muslims”, a trailer of which is presently being shown on Youtube, depicting the Prophet’s life, has made Muslims filled in anger and rage.

But three articles – namely, "The Legends of Prophet Muhammad by Jahanshah Rashidian”, “Innocence of Muslims: A Disgusting, Despicable, Reprehensible, Offensive Movie?” by Jake Neuman and “Another Movie on Muhammad and Islam Coming Soon from Spain” by Imran Firasat – say that the film in circulation have not indulged in such contrived degradation and exposure of the Prophet, but the film shows a rather true picture of the prophet’s life.

Interesting enough is that Imran Firasat, a Pakistani ex-Muslim living in Spain, has undertaken the making of another movie on the life of Prophet Muhammad. He says, “It will be the first movie on Muhammad to be produced by an ex-Muslim. For that reason, I can make you believe that you will find something special in that movie. Don’t miss it. I aim to produce the movie in at least 4 to 5 languages, so that Muslims from various countries can understand that and give a serious thought to their religious belief.

Mr. Firasat has also thrown a challenge before the entire Muslim community, saying: “I am starting work on the movie from tomorrow morning. I invite Muslims to stop me if they can. It is my challenge that my movie will be in front of the world very soon. …..I’m challenging Muslims again, I am starting work on the movie right now for exposing the cunning and self-claimed prophet of Islam. Stop me if you can. The countdown to release of the movie starts now.

In fact, Muhammad was indeed an evil person in the garb of a prophet and Muslims are trying to hide his true and portray an imaginary Muhammad for the saving the face of Islam. How deceptive can Muslim authors be in this affair? An example may be cited here for the convenience of the readers. Tariq Ramadan, professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University, believes that the life of human prophet Muhammad can teach us many lessons. In his book, In the Footsteps of the Prophet: Lessons from the Life of Muhammad (2007), he depicts Muhammad as a deeply spiritual man with great respect and love for women. According to him, Muhammad was not without faults. But he was tolerant to other faiths. “And unlike his followers, he allowed Muslims to abandon their religion, and personally permitted an Abyssinian Muslim to convert to Christianity”, says Ramadan.

From the comments of the three authors, as presented above, it becomes evident that the producer of the film “Innocence of Muslims” has depicted a rather true life of Muhammad without any serious exaggeration or forgery whatsoever in order to malign the glorious Prophet. Maker of the upcoming film, Imran Firasat, has no such vile intention either. More importantly, if a film-maker presents the life of the Prophet erroneously, Muslims have the right to go to court and fight such evil attempts legally. Last year, the Dutch MP Geert Wilders (the maker of the short film FITNA), wrote an article “Time has come to Expose Muhammad”, declaring that he is going to make a film on the life and deeds of Muhammad. Dr Ali Sina, the well-known ex-Muslim scholar and the founder of Faith Freedom International, is also talking about making a film on the life of Muhammad for many years.

All these information should make Muslims happy, because these people are suddenly coming forward to propagate the divine life of Muhammad and the divine faith originated by him. Why all these attempts make Muslims scared and angry instead? The reason might be that, through these films, some people are trying to expose some unpalatable and inedible truth, which Muslims try their best to hide. They try to hide these truths because if those facts are made public, Islam, a doctrine of perverted sex and violence, will lose its face. More importantly, these films will help make the civilized people of the world aware of the barbaric atrocities and immoral deeds of Muhammad. As a result, Islam will be condemned globally. People will know that Muslims are selling a cruel killer, a devil and a lustful despot as a divine Prophet. Most of all, sullying Muhammad’s Prophetic image in such manner would bring the collapse of his creed, Islam.

In the article “The Passion of the Vampire-Prophet,” author Sujit Das, wrote: “Often a question arises in our mind, why the Muslim clerics are reluctant to make a movie on Prophet Muhammad to promote Islam?.... The answer is simple. Islam is a barbaric religion which is completely devoid of spirituality. There is only deception, hate, murder, bloodshed, rape, delusion, terrorism, crime, suicide-bombing, honor-killing etc…etc. …In spite of this, if a film is produced on Muhammad’s honest biography, it will be a horror movie – a vampire movie that is set in background of extreme lawlessness of seventh century Arabia and Prophet Muhammad being the vampire itself.

The Wikipedia gives a list of 15 movies made on Muhammad and Islam. Out of these, 3 are based solely on the life and deeds of Muhammad. These are:

  1. The Life of The Last Prophet (This Islamic historical movie was labeled as one of the greatest movies about Muhammad ever made.)
  2. Muhammad: The Last Prophet (An animated historical film about the rise of the Islamic religion), and,
  3. Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet (A documentary that explains the life of Muhammad from birth to death and his contributions to the cultures of the time.)
These films have, undoubtedly, presented a sugar-coated Muhammad by concealing his lustful, cruel and demonic deeds. Had any of these films projected the true color of Muhammad, Muslims across the world would have demonstrated violently as they are now doing over the film “Innocence of Muslims”.

Five Pillars of Islam

According to Islamic scriptures, the political ideology of sex and violence, called religion of Islamic, rests on five pillars and they are,

  1. the shahada (Iman)
  2. daily prayers (salat)
  3. almsgiving (zakat)
  4. fasting during Ramadan (sawm) and the
  5. pilgrimage to Mecca (hajj) at least once in a lifetime.
The first pillar shahada contains six kalmias or oaths and they are (1) Kalimah Tayyibah, (2) Kalima Shahaadat, (3) Kalimah Tamjeed, (4) Kalimah Tawheed, (5) Kalima Astighfar and (6) Kalima Rud-e-Kuffer. Out of these six kalemas the first one or Kalimah Tayyibah is most important and it reads “La ilaha illallah, Muhammadur Rasulu'Llah” – (there is no god except Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah). Some scholars refer this kalmia as the soul of Islam. A slight disbelief in this kalema turns even a devout Muslim instantly into a kafir. So, a Muslim has to maintain a firm and unwavering belief in the second part of the kalmia that says “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”. Hence the image Muhammad is to be kept in high esteem, so that it may not raise the slightest disbelieve in his prophethood.

So, Islam may be compared to an extremely brittle fancy glassware, hanging from the ceiling with the help of fine thread, called Kalima Tayyibah. Slightest disbelieve in the prophethood of Muhammad, the thread will snap and the entire doctrine of Islam would fall on the ground and be broken into pieces. This is the reason why Muslims are ready to tolerate any adverse criticism of Allah, but not of Muhammad. Nearly a year ago, a group of Bangladeshi apostates living in the U.K. issued a statement explaining the reason why they have abandoned Islam. Aired by the BBC, the said declaration also explained why they do not consider Muhammad a prophet. It reads,

“One who claims to be a messenger of God is expected to live a saintly life. He must not be given to lust, he must not be a sexual pervert, and he must not be a rapist, a highway robber, a war criminal, a mass murderer or an assassin. One who claims to be a messenger of God must have a superior character. He must stand above the vices of the people of his time. Yet Muhammad’s life is that of a gangster godfather. He raided merchant caravans, looted innocent people, massacred entire male populations and enslaved the women and children. He raped the women captured in war after killing their husbands and told his followers that it is okay to have sex with their captives (Quran 33:50). He assassinated those who criticized him and executed them when he came to power and became de facto despot of Arabia. Muhammad was bereft of human compassion. He was an obsessed man with his dreams of grandiosity and could not forgive those who stood in his way.”

The statement continues, “Muhammad was a narcissist, like Hitler, Saddam or Stalin. He was astute and knew how to manipulate people, but his emotional intelligence was less evolved than that of a 6-year-old child. He simply could not feel the pain of others. He brutally massacred thousands of innocent people and pillaged their wealth. His ambitions were big and as a narcissist he honestly believed he is entitled to do as he pleased and commit all sorts of crimes and his evil deeds are justified.

Why Islam would perish?

Above discussions would make the reader grasp how devastating it would be if these films uncover the real face of Islam to the civilized world. Last year, I wrote an regarding Geert Wilders’ intention of making a film on Muhammad, entitled “Geert Wilders’ Film on Muhammad may Spell the Death of Islam”. In it, I explained why damage to Muhammad’s image would bring about the death of Islam. In the present context, I repeat some of the points from that article. To begin that article, I wrote,

The Internet has become a serious threat to the survival of Islam. Through internet, it has been easy to unmask the true face of Islam and its originator Muhammad. It has enabled critics to overcome the taboo of telling the truth about Islam and Muhammad… Islam stands on the projection of Muhammad as a perfect, sinless human being, but as his real vile character becomes exposed through the Internet, the foundation of Islam becomes increasing weak on its way to collapse. That's why Islamic countries try to block many Websites that expose the true face Islam and its founder.

On April 2, the RNW News Desk published an article, Wilders’Mohammed : rapist killer or compassionate activist?, authored by Klaas den Tek and Myrtille van Bommel. “A barbarian, a mass murderer - that’s how Dutch MP Geert Wilders says he will portray the prophet Mohammed in a new film. Hirsi Ali sees him as depraved, the Pope as tyrannical. Others think of him as elusive or an invention, and some consider him a tolerant philosopher or a human rights activist. Six views to assess Wilders’ claims about Mohammed”, the authors say.

The cruel leader of a band of plundering, murderous, rapist robbers from Medina” - that’s how Dutch MP Wilders says he wants to depict the prophet in his new film, due in 2012 as a sequel to his 2008 anti-Qur’an short FITNA. To support his view Wilders cites a biography of the prophet written by Flemish psychologist Herman Somers: “The sources describe orgies of savagery in which hundreds of people were strangled, their hands and feet chopped off, eyes pricked out and entire tribes exterminated.” Wilders says he wants to “unmask” Muhammad; so that the Muslims can turn their backs on Islam.

How Islam could survive if Muslims turn their backs to Islam?
