Responses to ‘Fitna’ film

Geert Wilders is a die-hard masochist who enjoys dispensing “Dutch treat”.

Muslims only wonder why Wilders disrupts the quiet of others while he is never interrupted. I think he is just seeking fame for himself by sacrificing the peace. Congratulation, Wilders. See you in hell.

In fact the protests against the anti-Islam film have been going on not only at Jakarta’s Dutch Embassy but also at the Dutch Consulate in Medan.

It is not a matter of maturity or immaturity of Indonesian Muslims, but the feeling of togetherness and brotherhood with Westerners, mainly Europeans, as a part of the global community that should be maintained.

The incorrect opinion on Islam must be buried to create a global life of harmony.

The less violent protests against Fitna do not indicate the growing maturity of Indonesian Muslims. It indicates the growing faithless of them.

Being a Muslim, I hate people who humiliate Islam without any knowledge about it. Fitna is mockery, reflecting the producer’s madness for popularity.

I’m a Christian and absolutely condemn Fitna as made based on like and dislike. I hope Muslim clerics still continue to give cool and fresh sermons (da’wah).

I think Fitna will hurt Muslims and it may spark conflicts.

The government bans Fitna, but Ahmadiyah followers in many areas like Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara and Kuningan, West Java, still get harassed even by officials of local governments.

Until now, seven mosques belonging to Ahmadiyah Muslims, located in Kuningan, West Java, are still closed by the local government, claiming for the sake of safety.

It is ridiculous. While the government and Muslims in this country condemn the film Fitna, they still allow violence against Ahmadiyah followers.

    PRESS RELEASE

    ‘FITNA’ MOVIE CAN ONLY HARM PEACE WITHIN SOCIETY – AHMADIYYA MUSLIM COMMUNITY

    As the film entitled ‘Fitna’ produced by Geert Wilders (a Member of Parliament in the Netherlands) is set to be released, the spokesperson for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has said that such films can only have a negative effect on the peace of society at large.
    Abid Khan, the Press Secretary of the Ahmadiyya Community said:

    “For the past few years Mr Geert Wilders has conducted a vicious and cruel campaign against Islam during which he has caused great pain to millions of Muslims worldwide through his attacks on the blessed character of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the Holy Qur’an.
    Now Mr Wilders has chosen to develop a film about Islam which given his previous statements must be expected to further his anti-Islamic agenda through baseless propaganda. His Political Partyclaims that its fundamental principle is ‘Freedom of the Individual’, yet Mr Wilders continues to try and prevent Muslims from living freely and peacefully.”

    There have been a number of reports that suggest that if the film is released it could lead to the type of violence witnessed in 2006 upon the printing in Denmark of caricatures depicting the Holy Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him). The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has always and will always condemn any form of violence which can never be justified as Islam is a peaceful religion. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community lives by its motto ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’
    and unlike the manifesto of Mr Wilders’ Political Party, the message of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is adhered to by all of its members throughout the world.
    Abid Khan said:

    “If this film is released it will no doubt hurt the sentiment of Muslims worldwide, but it is hoped that all Muslims follow the lead of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community by exhibiting their displeasure in a wholly peaceful manner.”

    The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community commends the decision of Dutch Television Broadcasters who have thus far unanimously decided against showing Mr Wilders film.

    End of Release

    I can only say, that this Moslem group is deffending Islam around the globe in the way The Holy Prophet Muhammad saw has tought Moslems long… long before our time. Showing the real face of Islam a Peaceful Religion.
