Published on Monday 1 October 2012 10:53 in “The Star”

A SHEFFIELD Muslim group has denounced the US-made film about Islam which has sparked protests around the world.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, based in Attercliffe, said it ‘unequivocally denounces’ the film, Innocence of Muslims.

A spokesman said:

“The film represents a grossly unprincipled use of the right to freedom of speech and a flagrant attempt to incite the emotions of a large proportion of the world.

He further speaked:

“The right to free speech is a cornerstone of Western democracy and should not be exploited. The use of ‘free speech’ as a cover for an intentionally crude, provocative and factually inaccurate portrayal of the life of a figure revered by many undermines the very spirit of free speech.”
