    TORONTO - Plans to screen a controversial film about the Prophet Muhammad in Toronto may come undone by the simple lack of a theatre willing to host the film that has sparked deadly protests in the Middle East.

    The hour-long “Innocence of Muslims” is being aired by the Canadian Hindu Advocacy in Toronto later this month at an undisclosed location, organizers said.

    Group spokesman Ron Banerjee said about 200 film buffs are expected for the screening. He said fans will have to undergo heavy security, including metal detectors.

    The film has sparked protests in Egypt, Yemen and Libya, where the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi was stormed and the ambassador and three other Americans killed.

    “A lot of people want to see this film,” Banerjee said on Friday. “It will be a private showing and filmgoers will be frisked and have to go through a metal detector.”

    Banerjee said organizers of TIFF have refused to show the film, which that depicts Muhammad as a womanizer and a madman.

    He said venues in Toronto are reluctant to allow the film to be shown on their premises fearing a backlash by radical Muslims.

    “We are looking at showing the film at a Hindu temple,”Banerjee said on Friday. “Hindus are furious that people are being killed over this film.”

    Banerjee said copies of the film have been withdrawn from circulation but are “available privately.”

    Parts of the film are still available on the Internet.

    He said viewers will have to book a seat to see the film and undergo searches.

    Snippets from other movies that are offensive to Christians and Hindus will also be shown, Banerjee said.


    “In Canada, we have tolerance and diversity and they (Muslims) are simply going to have to tolerate diverse viewpoints and opinions without rioting,” he said, adding that he is not concerned about a backlash.

    On Friday his group staged an event in which dog owners could walk their canines outside the Salahuddin Mosque, in Scarborough, during prayer sessions.

    Their event was in response to an incident in August that took place during an anti-Israel demonstration at Queen’s Park by an Islamic group. A Jewish man was arrested for his involvement in an altercation where he was shoved and his dog was kicked.

    Some devout Muslims believe dogs to be unclean and avoid the animals.

    Man, why the hell do these Hindu organisations do this? Now we're gonna have another million Pakistani and Bangla trolls on PDF criticising us, the "failed Hindutva terrorist state".

    What is the point of entertaining a proven low quality nonsensical movie?
    Would be a different case if the film was a quality production, backed by strong facts and arguments.
    Bad move. Those idiots should be countered right away.

    Courting trouble perhaps but definitely more ****s than GOI that has banned the movie.

    PS Hindus and Hinduism are being needlessly being involved in someone else's fight. Unnecessary.

    Whom so ever it may be they should not screen somethng which hurts other's belief. They should not screen the movie and that too inside a temple. They shall not be spared by GOD if they do such a disgusting thing......... foolish people, why are they silent about the atrocities of christian missionaries? they should target them too....... I strongly condem the step of screeening the movie inside a temple....... they are not true followers of SANATHANA DHARMA..... A person who really follows or preaches SANATHANA HARMA will not do like this...

    This is giving too much business to the man who made this movie. This is not necessary. This is adding fuel to fire. Not needed at all.

    You oppose this because paki and bangi trolls will make fun of you...:facepalm:..man you are giving the internet too much worth.

    Better oppose this as followers of one relgion why bother about something that needlessly irks followers of other religion, oppose this because this may put canada's hindu temples in the cross hairs of jihadis and this may even fuel riots in India !

    What does it say of a religion that causes murder due to rage over a third rate indi pic? All of this media attention is only fanning the flames.

    Whats the use of screening that film inside Temple??? :confused: Hindus should stay away from this stuff.A bad move in Canada might give negative result back home.

    Anyway... rioting/killings over a film,cartoon etc simply shows the true color of so called "Religion of Peace and Tolerance" :namaste:

    you know Hindu's can just sit infront of T.V, compu and just make wishes.... They are the bunch of Idiots who have false sense of Superiority of being Ancient Religion. Me too a Hindu but I find it very pathetic when people tolerate intolerance in name of tolerance!.. To heck with God . I find no Idiot idea so powerful than people fighting in name of GOD. They can't protect human life and still they fight to protect the God of Religion. Bunch of Peace loving morons, be it any religion.:hail:
