Documentary questions whether Prophet Mohammad was a “child molester”

The Spanish government has threatened to deport an ex-Muslim Pakistani film maker if he goes ahead with the release of a video entitled “The Innocent Prophet,” which purports to “raise awareness of the dangers of Islam to Western Civilization.”
Imran Firasat, a Pakistani ex-Muslim, has teamed up with controversial Pastor Terry Jones to publicize the film, which is set to be released this Friday. The trailer for the documentary features numerous passages out of the Quran which threaten violence against non-believers. In the clip, Firasat promises the video will question whether the Prophet Mohammad was sent by God or whether he was, “a child molester, assassin, and a self-proclaimed prophet.”
“Our representative for Stand Up America Now, Imran Firasat, has received word from the Spanish government informing him that if he or Stand Up America Now continue on and release the film on December 14 in Madrid Spain, then his residency status will be revoked. He will be detained, locked in prison under the excuse of being a danger to national security, then deported back to Pakistan where he would be killed because he is facing a death sentence due to his criticism of Islam,” states the group’s press release issued today.
In preparation for the upcoming release of the film, Belgian police raised the country’s terror alert status from level 2 to level 3. Firasat offered to postpone the release of the documentary so that authorities could check that, “there is nothing in this movie which doesn’t fall under the right of freedom of expression and that my movie will not cause any kind of loss to humanity.” However, the original release date seems to still be in place.
Pastor Terry Jones is a divisive figure who contends that Islam plans to impose Sharia law across the world as a replacement for western civilization and Christianity. Earlier this year, he attracted headlines for burning copies of the Quran. An Egyptian court later labeled Jones “an insult to Islam and a threat to national unity,” before sentencing him to death.
Jones also courted controversy by hanging an effigy of President Barack Obama in front of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida back in June. The Pastor recently announced “Burn Obama Day,” an event set to take place on January 19, during which effigies of the President will be set on fire as a form of protest.
Jones was also involved in promoting the infamous “Innocence of Muslims” video which led to anti-American protests across the Muslim world back in September. Although the Obama administration initially blamed the Benghazi consulate attack on the video, claiming it was a spontaneous act, it was later admitted that the assault, during which Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed, was a coordinated attack planned in advance by terrorists.
Muslim scholars argue that under the terms of the Quran, insulting the Prophet Muhammad is a sin punishable by execution.
Innumerable people around the world have been murdered for the “blasphemy” of criticizing Islam, including a Dutch film maker who was slain in Amsterdam after he released a documentary criticizing the treatment of women under Islam. Last year, two Pakistani ministers were killed by the Taliban for opposing a law that prescribed the death penalty for those criticizing Islam.
In 2005, a Danish newspaper printed cartoons which depicted the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist as a protest against Islam’s incompatibility with free speech. The cartoons led to violent demonstrations around the world and the deaths of over 200 people as well as attacks on European diplomatic missions and churches.
