Iran to counter Fitna with two documentaries
The Iranian films, Reply to Fitna and Beyond Fitna, hope to neutralise the Dutch “plot” against Islam.29 April 2008
TEHRAN - Iran is to counter the anti-Islamic video Fitna made by Dutch legislator Geert Wilders with two documentary films, Fars news agency reported on Monday.
The Iranian films are titled Reply to Fitna and Beyond Fitna. They aim at what the filmmakers call neutralising the "plot" by the Dutch against Islam.
The two Iranian filmmakers have also declared their readiness to have a debate with Wilders over his film.
Tehran has condemned the anti-Islamic video, terming it "insulting and anti-Islamic" and symbolic for the "deep antagonism" of some Western states towards Islam and Muslims.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry in March summoned the Dutch ambassador to Tehran to lodge a protest against Wilders' video.
