Anti-Islam film row: Writ petition filed in Bombay HC


In a bid to curb broadcasting of the controversial anti-Islam film, a writ petition has been filed in the Bombay High Court by a petitioner, Amin Idris. Idris has also moved the court to lodge an FIR against the makers and broadcasters of the film. Speaking on behalf of Idris in Mumbai, advocate Ejaz Naqvi today said that the writ petition urges action against those producing and promoting the film. Naqvi added that the film has hurt religious sentiments of a lot of people and portrayed Prophet Mohammad in bad light.The 13-minute English-language short film, which was filmed in California, portrays the Prophet Mohammad engaged in crude and offensive behaviour.
