Anti-Muslim filmmaker Nakoula ‘has no regrets’

Washington: The maker of the anti-Islam movie, ‘Innocence of Muslims,’ which outraged the Muslim world, has said that he ‘has no regrets.’

Egyptian-American Coptic Christian, Nakoula Basseley said that he stands by the incendiary movie, which portrays Prophet Muhammad as a fraud and a pedophile.

“I thought, before I wrote this script that I should burn myself in a public square to let the American people and the people of the world know this message that I believe in,” Nakoula told the New York Times.

According to the ABC, in his interview with the paper, he said he didn``t regret the film "at all"
and wanted to communicate the "actual truth" about Muhammad.

Nakoula was sent to prison earlier this month for violating his probation on a prior federal fraud conviction.

He admitted that he lied to his probation officer and used fake names, though prosecutors dropped other counts, which included the accusation that he had lied to authorities about the scope of his role in making "Innocence of Muslims."
