SRINAGAR, Jammu & Kashmir (September 21, 2012)—In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee has strongly condemned the release of an anti-Islam film in the US.

The APSCC Chairman, Jagmohan Singh Raina, in a statement said, such acts cannot be tolerated and those who carry them out should not be spared. “In today’s social and democratic world, there is no place for abhorrence by movie makers. Those who try to provoke anti-religious sentiments by depicting counterfeit knowledge on sensitive religious issues should be put behind the bars,” Raina said.

“I am shocked that the American government delayed the arrest of the filmmaker and is trying to protect him. He should have been put behind the bars immediately for trying to hurt and provoke the religious sentiments of the Muslims all over the world,” he said.

He said that the director of the film should be tried by the judicial authorities for such a demeaning act. “We cannot tolerate disrespect to any religion and if we promote such unethical behaviour through media then, instead of peace we will only have bloodshed on roads, which we are witnessing even today,” Raina added.
