I just read on LebanonDebate that Fetih 1453 was officially banned but I don’t see an official statement confirming the ban yet. I wouldn’t be surprised though if it’s taken out of theaters.
Why was it banned?
A number of activists on Facebook have been protesting at Sassine Square against the reformulation of the history of Constantinople in the film “Fetih 1453”, which, according to them, contains false historical facts and is “an offense to the Christian civilization”. [Facebook]
Am I for the ban?
Of course not. If you feel offended as a Christian, don’t watch it.
In fact, the only Turkish productions we should be banning are those stupid TV shows to which most Lebanese are addicted to these days.
So your with banning the muslim film but not with banning the christian film
Dude I said I am not for the ban lol!
People don’t take the time to read every word you write. The first words they read out of each paragraph are enough to come to their own conclusions. Welcome to the world.
HADY spare us ur lessons and apply them on urself…Najib said that he is not with banning the movie, so E replied to him by asking why we should not ban this movie which is against christians but we should ban the movie which is against muslims…Please Jihad read the whole thing not just the first word of each paragraph b4 jumping into conclusions.
I watched it yesterday. A waste of money anyway. Unless you miss the dubbed voices of Sindibad and Yasmeena. This is how it sounded to me.
I’m against the ban too. But I’m with the work of awareness to the masses.
Protesting and anger movements will never make people aware of the truth. EDUCATE, TEACH and make people know the truth instead.
