Kyrgyzstan bans gay documentary
Bishkek: A Kyrgyzstan court Friday banned a documentary on gay Muslims from being shown in the country.
The film ‘I`m Gay, I`m Muslim’ was submitted as part of the One World International Documentary Film Festival currently underway in the capital city of Bishkek.
It reportedly tells the story of gay rights in the Islamic world through the lens of ordinary Moroccans.
Before the court ban, the Kyrgyz State Committee for National Security appealed to chief Mufti Rakhmatulla Egemberdiev, who believes the film "presents Islam in bad form, using people who have nothing to do with religion in general as examples".
This is the second recent ban on Islam-related film in Kyrgyzstan. A Bishkek court ruled the film ‘Innocence of Muslims’ extremist Sep 21 and banned its screening.
Islam is the predominant religion in Kyrgyzstan.
