Ehsan Jami says his film, Interview with Muhammad, is not anti-Islamic.

THE HAGUE – Ehsan Jami, founder of the Committee for Former Muslims, has presented his English-language film entitled Interview with Muhammad to the press in the parliamentary press centre in The Hague.

In the 15-minute film, the prophet Muhammad looks back on his life and the interviewer questions him on women's rights, non-believers and Judaism.

The former Muslim says his film is not anti-Islamic. Instead, the film which is also available on the internet focuses on victims of Islam. Jami hopes the film will improve their situation. The film was presented to the press in the parliamentary press centre in The Hague.

Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has criticised the showing. He says he is concerned about the image of the Netherlands in the media abroad. The minister stresses that Islam is fully respected in the Netherlands, but there is also freedom of speech.
