Free the Film

It now looks as if Mullah Dadulla will never have a second career as a DJ –what a waste! Yet, however great the loss to techno music, we should not forget the minority of secular Muslims over their more flamboyant Islamist counterparts.
In the US, it appears that the Public Broadcasting Service is determined to do just that: the film “Islam vs Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Centre” is apparently being suppressed by the PBS –with the unintended consequence of boosting interest in it. This film, which seems to focus on the role and problems of secular Muslims in the West, sounds like a much needed contribution and it should find a keen audience well beyond the US. There is a review here.
Update: A (now obsolete) link to a petition has been removed from this post. The film can now be ordered here.
