Russian Prosecutors Seek to Ban

The Prosecutor General’s Office has declared the film “Innocence of Muslims” extremist and plans to ban the scandalous video in Russia.

      The respective decision must be made by a court. Before the court makes a ruling, the Prosecutor General’s Office has instructed the federal mass communications watchdog “to take measures for preventing media distribution of the information contained in this film."

      The watchdog has already recommended Russian Internet providers to block access to the film, which portrays Islam and the Prophet Muhammad in a negative light for Muslims.

      The 14-minute trailer to "Innocence of Muslims" was originally posted on YouTube last June. The film was based on some episodes from "Desert Warriors" low-budget film, which had nothing to do with Muslims violation. Creators of "Innocence of Muslims" just added new lines above original speech. The film attracted little attention until September 8, when portions of the trailer were broadcast by a television network in Egypt. Violent protests against the film broke out on Sept. 11 in Egypt and Libya, eventually spreading to other Arab countries in the days that followed. US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed by protesters in Benghazi during an attack of the US embassy.

      According to statistics, about 10 million Muslims live in Russia. Not a single protest action against the film was held in the country these days.
