The release of a sacrilegious film in the UK has sparked protests among the country’s Muslim community.

Protests have erupted across the UK as thousands of British Muslims are expressing outrage at the release of a new film described as blasphemous and sectarian by critics.

The film is titled ‘The Lady of Heaven’ and details events surrounding the passing of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. However, the movie’s narrative has provoked protests.

Community anger is on the rise across the country and protests continue to spring up all across the UK. All demanding the same thing that British cinemas abandon the movie. An online petition has also been launched and has gained around 100k signatures in just a few days.

The reasons listed why Muslims dislike the film are various.

The film’s writer is also a matter of controversy. The movie is written by notorious UK-based hate preacher, Yasir Habib. He has a long history of spreading offensive and insulting rhetoric against Muslims.

Protesters made clear they will not stand idly by and allow a hate preacher to use a mainstream platform.

So far, the film has been a flop. Reports suggest it has performed poorly in the US and a counter-petition calling for support for the film accumulated a mere 2.5K signatures. 

However, protest leaders say they won’t stop the fight until the film is dropped from all British cinemas.

A CINEMA in Bolton has pulled a film, described as ‘blasphemous’. following protests.

The Bolton News.

Bolton Cineworld will no longer be taking booking for Our Lady in Heaven following an outcry from some Muslims in the borough.

More than 100 people turned out to protest yesterday afternoon against the showing of the film.

And Bolton Council of Mosques had sent an email to the cinema, based in The Valley.

Signed by the chairman, Asif Patel, it stated: “You many well be aware of the recently released film ‘Lady of Heaven’ which has caused much distress to Muslims across the globe.

A few months ago:

Lady of Heaven: pure, unadulterated sectarian filth writes the sectarian Islamist site 5 PIllars,

Roshan Muhammed Salih reviews Lady of Heaven, the sectarian hate film that is being platformed by cinemas in the UK and could provoke serious Sunni-Shia tensions.

There is no doubt that Lady of Heaven is going to create sectarian tensions between Sunnis and Shias in the UK once it becomes widely available here.

Its trailer, released over a year ago, has already received over three million views and gave us a glimpse into the sectarian narratives that would follow.

The actual film itself has been released in the United States, Canada and Ireland and will surely hit cinemas here soon as well as prominent streaming services. After all, the film’s mysterious financial backers will have to recoup their $15 million budget somehow.

In short, the worst fears of Sunnis will be more than realised. Lady of Heaven is two hours plus of the most extreme Shia sectarian narratives about how the caliphate was supposedly “usurped” from the Ahl ul Bayt. And most Muslims will find the invective against three of the most beloved companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) shocking and disgusting.

But it is also a deeply racist film with all the main negative characters being portrayed by black actors. What’s more, the film directly disrespects the Prophet (pbuh) by showing his face.

That said, given that the scriptwriter was the notorious hate preacher Yasser Al-Habib no one should be really surprised.

There is a detailed Wikipedia entry, “The Lady of Heaven is a 2021 British epic historical drama film directed by Eli King in his directorial debut and written by the Twelver Shia Muslim Sheikh Yasser Al-Habib, the spiritual leader of The Mahdi Servants Union. “

  1. I can assure you that I won’t be sinning by watching it. The trailer is just the men who made it talking about how wonderful it is. Don’t they believe in giving the milk away for nothing?
