A film about the July 7 suicide bombings that shows that Islam is a religion of peace and Western governments are wicked. But I suppose we cannot expect any more incisive or insightful analysis from a filmmaker who is essentially a pornographer. From AFP, with thanks to Fjordman:
MUMBAI, India — Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt will soon start shooting a film about the July suicide bombings in London that left 56 people dead in a bid to show Islam as a religion of peace.
Titled Suicide Bomber, the Hindi movie will star Bhatt’s son, Rahul, in the role of a young Asian Muslim planning to trigger the blasts in London.
“The movie is inspired by the London bombings and my son will make his film debut by playing the key role of the suicide bomber who is of Asian origin,” Bhatt said on Wednesday.
He said that the shooting had a 50 million rupee ($1.1 million) budget and would start in June, adding “I am aiming for a December 2006 release.”
The production will be set in London and India.
“I have been researching on the script since the bombings and through the movie I plan to highlight that Islam is a religion of peace and not dreadful as it is perceived by the world,” Bhatt said.
“I will attempt to bring out the virtues of Islamic living and also show how the state [government] can sometimes be a demon. The film will delve into the heart and mind of a suicide bomber.”
