The Bishkek Pervomaisky Court has banned the showing and dissemination in Kyrgyzstan of the film Innocence of Muslims.
Thus, the court has upheld the claim filed by the Kyrgyz Prosecutor General's Office on the basis of a decision made by experts from the State Commission on Religious Affairs.
The Prosecutor General's Office had asked the court to recognize the film as extremist and ban its showing, multiplication and dissemination.
According to the experts' decision, the film Innocence of Muslims "contains indications of fanning religious feud and belittling Muslims based on religious affiliation."
The film Innocence of Muslims, filmed in the U.S., has sparked attacks on U.S. diplomatic missions in some Muslim countries. The film shows Prophet Muhammad as a cruel fraud inventing "Allah's laws" in his own interests and practicing casual sex.
