An obscure anti-Muslim extremist (and convicted fraudster) makes a movie with wooden acting and overdubbed dialogue. It's a flop. But it accomplished what he intended, and elicited the predictable protests worldwide. Demeaning a religion's Prophet will never please its faithful. It's particularly offensive to Muslims, whose teachings emphatically forbid it. Not just religion, but social, military and political history play their roles in these protests. In this edition of "Sounds of Dissent," John Grebe interviews Pakistani essayist and physicist Pervez Hoodbhoy, who discusses what's in play.
Radio interview by John Grebe, first aired live on Sounds of Dissent on WZBC 90.3 FM Boston on 2012-09-15.
