Spain to Deport Filmmaker Imran Firasat for Criticizing Islam
In 2013 anti-Islamist filmmaker Imran Firasat was charged with hate crimes in Spain for producing a movie on Islam’s prophet Muhammad’s life. Islamists demanded he be deported over the YouTube movie on Muhammad. But according to Firasat’s attorney Sam Nunberg, “the Spanish Government has not cited one instance where Imran’s video has caused a national security disturbance or a single complaint.”
In May 2013, Imran Firasat was acquitted of hate crimes by the public prosecutor and a Spanish judge.
On Independence Day 2013 Imram Firasat released his anti-Muslim movie “Innocence of Islamic Jihad.”
The movie asks, “What motivates Muslims to kill innocent people?”
Here is the trailer.
This week Spain decided to deport Imran Firasat for criticizing Islam.
The Supreme Court decided his critique of Islam posed a danger to Spain.
Gatestone Institute reported:
The Spanish Supreme Court has ruled that a political refugee should be deported because his criticism of Islam poses “a danger to the security of Spain.”
The May 30 ruling, which upholds an earlier decision by a lower court to revoke the refugee status of a Pakistani ex-Muslim named Imran Firasat, showcases how the fear of Muslim rage continues to threaten the exercise of free speech in Europe.
Firasat obtained political asylum in Spain in October 2006 because of death threats against him in both Pakistan and Indonesia for leaving the Islamic faith and marrying a non-Muslim.
Spanish authorities, however, took measures to deport Firasat in December 2012, after he released a one-hour amateur film entitled, “The Innocent Prophet: The Life of Mohammed from a Different Point of View.” The movie, which was posted on YouTube, purports to raise awareness of the dangers of Islam to Western Civilization.
The film shows images of the Muslim terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, on double-decker buses in London and on commuter trains in Madrid. The movie, which features many passages from the Koran that threaten violence against non-Muslims, promises to answer the question: “Was Mohammed an inspired prophet of God, or was he a madman driven by his own demons, thus producing a religion of violence and tyranny?”
Once again, the Islamists win.
