Fitna – a film from one point of view

2 04 2008

fitnathemovie.jpgIf Fitna is only a 2008 short film by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders and does not emphasise Qur’anic motivation for terrorism, Islamic universalism in the Netherlands, it would not have been rated as the most controversial short film in 2008. If it has not crossed the limit of freedom, its brief release would not have led to the boycott of Dutch products in Muslim majority countries.

One may argue that the making is justified based on freedom of expression. But one must remember that freedom has its limit. The film was based on one personal view from one interpretation. Perhaps a strategy to counterbalance this is to produce a film that shows another side of a story – from another perspective from a different voice.
