Iranian MPs Condemn Insult to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)
The Iranian parliament, in a statement on Wednesday, strongly condemned the insult leveled against the prophet of Islam in a recent US-Israeli movie.
In the statement signed by 250 Iranian legislators on Wednesday, the Iranian parliamentarians deplored the anti-Islamic movie, and called it an "organized action", and not a single, separated and accidental move.
The Iranian MPs further called for an emergency meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to "specify the Islamic countries' strategy for confronting this plot".
"We, the representatives of the Iranian nation, ask Islamic states to end indifference and show responsibility and defend the dignity of the Muslim world against enemies," the statement underscored.
Outrage is growing across the Muslim world over the five-million-US dollar movie that has been financed by more than 100 Jews and produced by an American-Israeli man in the US.
The film called "Innocence of Muslims", previously called Desert Warriors and Innocence of Bin Laden, is a 2012 anti-Muslim film about Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
The film was being promoted by a Florida pastor, Terry Jones, known for previous Koran-burning stunts that angered Muslims in various countries.
Since the release of the sacrilege film, protesters have attacked US embassies in Libya, Egypt and Yemen over the movie. The US ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday.
The western media first tried to convince non-Muslims across the globe that Muslims have taken to streets because religious rules ban depicting the prophet in any form, but the reality is that the film openly levels repeated and continued insults to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
