Security risks force Channel 4 to cancel screening of Islam: The Untold Story

11 September 2012

 

Due to the attack on the US Embassy in Libya which resulted in the killing of the US ambassador, and widespread Muslim fury over the provocative anti-Islamic movie, The Innocence of Muslims, Channel 4 has decided to cancel screening of the documentary Islam: The Untold story.

 

Although the documentary was much more subtle in its criticism of Islam, some Muslims considered it to be insulting to Islamic values. According to the reports the director of the documentary has also received threats. Thus, Channel 4 has cancelled screening of the documentary to avoid violent backlash.
