From Pat Dollard:
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.
