The Iranians are getting a bit stroppy about a BBC documentary concerning Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Sadly and not for the first time the Iranians are playing silly buggers trying to invent a controversy where none exists. Rather than perhaps concentrating on not killing their own people or alternatively providing the people of Bahrain with real support rather than just acting as Paper Tigers they choose the BBC as their target. Why can't the Iranians be honest and state their true objection which is that this documentary is being presented by a Sunni Muslim not a Shia.
The Documentary which I support because it may act as real Dawah by promoting Islam to a far wider audience is commissioned by the Muslim Head of Religion at the BBC Aaqil Ahmed and has the excellent Muslim journalist Rageh Omah from Al Jazeera presenting the documentary. As was recently made clear at a special screening the BBC confirmed that in line with Islamic sensitivity no images will be depicted so sadly the Iranians are grandstanding presumably to deflect attention from their own internal difficulties.
My advice to Iran is the real "enemy" are those Muslims in the Ahmadinejad regime who are up to their neck with the blood of innocent civilians slaughtered because they simply called for democracy. As a British Muslim and a BBC licence fee payer, Iran please sod off and leave us to enjoy a programme by a Muslim which hopefully will be presented sensitively and sympathetically to overcome in the West the widely misunderstood and misrepresented last messenger of Allah (swt).
