Fitna helps to know Islamic extremism best

Fitna was released in 2008 and even it received a wide acclamation among victims of Islamic persecutions and intellectuals (freed from decade-long obsession to speak for worldwide harmony only and not the ominous changes), there was condemnation too, especially among Islamist intellectuals and Marxist theoreticians. But their voices have also calm downed in these years, thanks to crueler (more roughshod) manifestation of global Islamic extremism and its finest depiction through Fitna, creating a spell on viewers.

But Fitna is neither any fiction nor any series of photographs or anything else. In reality, Fitna is a brief political film made under the auspices of Geert Wilders, well-known critic of Islam, and his views examining Islam. Here is a few more info on its aspects. While the motion picture is almost 17 minutes in length, it brings forth an assortment of (though selected) excerpts from Suras of the Qur'an, combined with media clips, newspaper cuttings portraying barbarous acts of violence, persecution by Islamic supremacists.

In short, Fitna makes a grievous and valorous endeavor to exhibit how Qur'an propels its adherents to detest all violators of Islamic teachings or persons daring to have faith in other religious beliefs. The film, from the day 1 of its formal release, led to a foul cry among Muslims and as per reports, Geert Wilders also received quite a few life threatening warnings. Fitna is an Arabic word indicating "disagreement and division among people" or a "test of faith in times of trial.” On the word of Geert Wilders, the movie is "a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamization."

Fitna, to be precise, states with conviction that Islam invigorates dreadful acts of terrorism, anti-Semitism, violence against women, violence and suppression of "infidels" and against homosexuals and Islamic universalism. An extensive portion of the movie speaks of Islam’s role (intensifying with time) in Netherlands, known more as first bastion of Eurabia these days.

Nevertheless, Fitna’s experiences in the days following its formal publication on the internet in 2008 were not solacing. There were several interruptions in its showings emanating from abrupt closure of show and raging protests.

Continual backing of its followers has been the greatest force behind Fitna and its growing popularity. If one is interested to know of Islamic terrorism and related aspects, Fitna must be watched.
