Islamists demand ban on Netflix, Raza Academy wants strict action against the platform for Nava Rasa poster

One of the Islamist organisations at the forefront of the campaign is the Raza Academy. Raza Academy has demanded strict action against the platform.

Streaming platform Netflix has incurred the wrath of Islamists online after releasing a promotional poster for its show ‘Nava Rasa’ that featured verses from the Quran. The poster was apparently published in the newspaper Daily Thanthi.

Following the publication, Islamists have come to the fore to hurl abuses at Netflix and demand strict action for the same. One of the Islamist organisations at the forefront of the campaign is the Raza Academy. Raza Academy has demanded strict action against the platform.

Raza Academy is notorious for its conduct in the past, such as the demand that Muslim countries issue a fatwa against French President Emmanuel Macron for supporting free speech. Earlier, Raza Academy had threatened a ‘law and order situation’ if the movie ‘Muhammad: The Messenger of God’ was not banned. The movie depicts the life of the prophet from birth till the age of 13.

In August 2011, its leaders had organised a so-called protest in Azad Maidan that had devolved into violent riots. Apart from the Raza Academy, a host of other Islamists have raised a cantankerous clamour on social media against the poster.

Abuses are flowing freely against Netflix. The platform is being called ‘Children of Haram’ and ‘h*r*mzada’.

Calls are being made to ban Netflix in the country due to the poster.

Freedom of expression has often come under attack in recent times due to the intolerance of Islamists. The entertainment industry has often engaged in self-censorship to avoid inviting backlash from Islamists. It remains to be seen how Netflix responds to the matter.
