Malala Biopic Director Gets Fatwa From Noida-based Muslim Cleric

  • Malala Biopic Director Gets Fatwa From Noida-based Muslim Cleric

Director HE Amjad Khan's film "Gul Makai", based on Pakistani education activist and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai is set to release soon, and the filmmaker has received a fatwa from a Noida-based Muslim cleric for disrespecting the Quran.


Khan shared that he has been getting many death threats since he started the film, and now a Noida-based cleric has an issue with his film's poster.


"Ab fatwa lag gaya hai (now a fatwa has been issued) by a person from Noida. There is a poster that has Malala holding a book and standing next to a blast, and he thinks it is the Quran. He thinks we haven't shown respect to the holy book. He called me a kafir," Khan told IANS here.


"I am trying to have a word with him so that I can explain to him that it's an English book," Khan added.


What about a police case? "You have to report, which I have done. I would say he hasn't been able to understand things. I am making a film on peace. If I file a police case then police will bring him in, and then why am I even making the film?" he asked.


The film, starring Reem Shaikh, Atul Kulkarni and Divya Dutta, is set to hit the screens on January 31.
