Bombay: The Bombay High Court will on Monday hear a writ petition seeking a ban on the 'anti-Islam' film that is at the centre of a huge controversy currently. The film, 'Innocence of Muslims' by US director Sam Bacile purportedly shows Islam in bad light.
The movie, that went viral on the Internet, sparked violent protests in the Middle East and Asia, with Pakistan and some parts of India witnessing attacks on US embassies.
A Congress party member Ameen Mustafa Idrisi filed the petition seeking its removal from the Internet. The petition also sought action against Google CEO Larry Page and Chairman Eric Schmidt for letting the film stay online.
