The Message

Postby Ket В» 11.04.2020

.

A screenshot of the film The Message. India's northernmost province, Jammu and Kashmir, was not the right place -- and September 14, was especially not the right time -- to be screening a film about the Prophet Muhammad. Nearby in Pakistan, protests over the controversial Innocence of Muslims had recently turned fatal , and demonstrators at the University of Kashmir carried placards that read " Obama, we are all Osama.

The event instantly set off a riot. Shouting first, then throwing stones, a contingent of Kupwara's residents, schoolteachers, and pupils misrecognized the movie as the devious and amateurish YouTube trailer that led to protests in Egypt. But after police arrested two and confiscated the Urdu-dubbed video, they discovered not the " Sam Bacile " production the locals had assumed -- soldiers were actually screening a three-hour, high-budget epic that earned an Academy Award nomination for best original score -- in The Message also released under the title Mohammad, Messenger of God is now used in the military's hearts-and-minds campaign , intended for shoring up public relations in remote Muslim regions.

Akkad cast Anthony Quinn as Muhammad's uncle, Hamza, in the English version, and shot a separate version with Arabic-speaking actors. He gained support from Islamic scholars at Al-Azhar University and filmed exclusively in the Arab world -- efforts to appease detractors who accused him of commercially exploiting the Prophet's life.

And Akkad even placed this slide, about 5 minutes into the movie, to conciliate Islamic audiences:. Though Akkad sympathized and practiced Islam -- making him a foil to Bacile, a. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, one of the many monikers of the filmmaker who was recently jailed on November 7 -- his movie triggered a similar backlash.

Washington, D. By mid-afternoon they had seized control of the District Building, the Islamic Center, and the B'na B'rith Headquarters , shooting dead a police officer and local reporter in the process. Among the hostages they seized were a future mayor -- Marion Barry, then a city councilman, who survived a shotgun wound to the chest -- and then-mayor Walter Washington, who was barricaded in his office.

Poorly remembered about the plot is what provoked it: the same film that sparked protests in India this year. I'm Muslim and I'll die for my faith. It's a joke. It's misrepresenting the Muslim faith. The Hanafi Siege dragged on for 39 hours, prompted Associated Press articles headlined "Moslem terrorists hijacking the capital," and would be considered the city's first major domestic-terrorism crisis.

After the Hanafi episode, President Carter criticized the crisis coverage in its aftermath for giving voice to extremists; he asked for "sober consideration" amongst journalists in future scenarios. United Nations ambassador Andrew Young was more blunt: "I wish there could be a law to restrict publication of information regarding violent crimes," he said days after the incident.

Khaalis founded the Hanafi Muslim Movement of America in , and recruited a group of middle-class blacks practicing moderate Islam to join. Though they never grew beyond a few thousand in number, the group received outsized attention for one member -- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar , the NBA Hall-of-Famer -- who was a prominent contributor of seed money.

Before establishing the Hanafis, Khaalis was a high-ranking member of the Nation of Islam, but left disillusioned and even tried, to no avail, to convince his close friend Malcolm X to leave as well. Khaalis evolved from a preacher of "peace and racial harmony" into a "fanatic bent on revenge," as Newsweek put it, when seven members of Khaalis's family were murdered in by a criminal enterprise known as the Black Mafia from Philadelphia -- allegedly over Khaalis' criticism of Nation of Islam's leader, Elijah Muhammad.

One hostage would later recount how Khaalis coordinated his attack to coincide with the movie's premiere: "[Khaalis] said he had been planning how and when to respond and waited for guidance Second, that a sacrilegious movie be banished from theaters.

I say we want them right here. I want to see how tough they are. I want the one who killed Malcolm [X] too You killed my babies and shot my women Police did not heed his first request, but accepted the second. That afternoon, The Message was frozen mid-reel at New York screenings, postponing its premiere.

Akkad, the film's producer, told The Washington Post in an interview during the two-day siege, "I am willing to show this movie to any Moslem and if they don't like it, I am willing to burn it. If there is any offense, I promise I will burn it. Many would later question whether the Hanafis had actually seen The Message , not only because public screenings had just begun, but because the movie seemed blatantly non-confrontational. It began with an opening interlude just before the disarming slide shown above.

The interlude starts with a white-turbaned actor, playing the part of the Prophet Muhammad's scroll carrier, uttering the first words. Critics panned The Message in for its valorizing portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad's life. In Newsweek , film critic Janet Maslin deemed it "remarkably innocuous," dismissing the film as dumbed down and boosterish: "cinematically crude and so reverential toward its subject as to seem mechanical.

Delays forced him to finish filming in Libya, with Muammar Qaddafi's willing approval. Although The Message would be re-released for domestic and international audiences, the Hanafi Siege put a damper on Akkad's vision. After flopping with his epic, Akkad would spin Halloween into a franchise, making seven sequels.

But Akkad could not escape religious fanaticism. He was killed in a terrorist bombing of a Jordan hotel in Mark Steyn eulogized Akkad in The Atlantic in Stopping Akkad's so-called sacrilegious picture was Khaalis's only successful demand. While the hostage standoff dragged on, police brought in ambassadors from Iran, Pakistan, and Egypt to communicate with Khaalis and attempt to appease him.

They recited Koran verses and poetry to keep him calm. The State Department briefed President Carter on the situation, but the conflict subsided with a steady stream of hostages being released, and the Hanafis surrendering peacefully.

During their trial, the defense lawyer emphasized The Message as a leading motive of their protest, hoping to earn more-lenient sentences by arguing they had only acted in religious expression toward a denigrating film. The Hanafi Siege would become overshadowed by other national-security scares of the era, sandwiched between more-famous hostage standoffs like the Munich Olympics and the Iranian hostage crisis years later.

But with the recent uproar over Innocence of Muslims, The Message now seems like an odd progenitor -- a film with a foreign-born backer, a strong tie to Libya, and a precipitating legacy of violence.
