Hate film

The Express Tribune: by Anwer Mooraj.

This is not the first time it has happened. The Danes and the French had a go with those blasphemous cartoons which ridiculed Islam. They unleashed a torrent of protest in the Muslim world which took weeks to die out. British and American newspaper editors saw the pictures and wisely preferred not to print them. Other European editors were tempted, but decided to follow the British example. But apparently, no Western government can possibly suppress a hate film, which is directed against a particular religion, when it is made in secret and they have no knowledge of its existence. Such was the case with the hate film Innocence of Muslims, which set the Middle East and now Pakistan in turmoil.

I watched Barack Obama on Euronews after American embassies were targeted by mobs. One could see the strain on his face.
