The film by the renowned director is the first of a trilogy on the life of Muhammad, and shows his childhood and adolescence till he becomes a prophet."

"Firstly, the name of the prophet shouldn't be in the film's title. People use a film's name loosely, like when someone says bad things about the film, it sounds like an insult to Muhammad himself."

"Secondly, photography isn't allowed in Islam. We have a problem with various actors shown playing Muhammad, " Mohammed Saeed Noori, founder secretary of the Raza Academy, wrote in the memorandum as per the report.
