NEW DELHI: A fatwa has been issued by a Jaipur Mufti against the film Le Gaya Saddam?s maker Amjad Khan and his film which deals with the system of divorce in Islam, following protests.

The film?s debutante director Khan, however, said his film had only tried to highlight the social problem of divorce and had not hurt any sentiments. The fatwa was issued by Abdul Sattar Razvi, Mufti of Ghatgate, Jaipur on Saturday night after a complaint received by a few locals that the film allegedly defamed Islam.

According to the complainants, there was some "objectionable" content in the film against Islam that insulted the religion. Apparently, the objection is to the fact that the groom is the grandfather of the hero.

But the director says, "I think there has been some misunderstanding. Those who have issued the fatwa have not seen the movie properly. I have kept the Shariat Laws in mind while making the film. The issue is the scene where it is shown that to remarry the same girl, the boy gets her married off to her grandfather. I have not shown anything against the religion of Islam and its laws."

When contacted, the Mufti said the Fatwa was issued as per the law of Islam. "Objection to a film/content which insults Islam is absolutely justified in the light of Islamic law. I have not seen the movie but, as they mentioned in their letter, certain things are absolutely objectionable," he said.

The Kolkata-based director, who also claimed that he is receiving threatening calls over phone, contested the assertions in the protest.

"I have never hurt anybody?s sentiment through the film. I have made this film to tell how women are affected by the alleged easy access of divorce in the (Muslim) community," Khan said. "I will ask police to give me protection as I know they will harm me. I have already received threat calls," he added.

Coincidentally, the 1982 Hindi film ?Nikaah? produced and directed by B R Chopra had dealt with a similar subject. The film had starred Pakistan actress-singer Salma Agha with Raj Babbar and
