Filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (known as Sam Bacile, a resident of Los Angeles county) made a film “Innocence of Muslims”, which mocks Prophet Muhammad (Sm). Nakoula uploaded a 14-minute controversial footage (trailer) of this film in YouTube, the world’s most popular video file sharing sites in the social media. But after seeing this trailer, entire Muslim nations of the world, especially the Middle East Muslims were raged. The film stirred the whole Muslim nations in such a way that some countries were forced to shut down YouTube in their country. The U.S. authorities have requested YouTube to remove the video. The issue went into such lengths that an actor had to file a complain in the court. But, the court denied to issue a removal order to YouTube.

Cindy Lee Garcia is the woman who acted in the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims“. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula told Garcia that she was going to act in an Arabian desert adventure film named “Desert Warrior”. And she acted in the film in her own way, but she didn’t know that the film maker would change the title of the film later and the film was actually being made for some other purpose. According to Garcia, Nakoula “intentionally concealed the purpose and content of the film.” However, in that 14-minute trailer, it has been shown that Garcia was having oral sex with prophet Muhammad (Sm).

The film such controversy that Google, who owns YouTube, blocked the video in six countries including Saudi Arabia and India. Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sudan have blocked the YouTube website after Google reportedly declined to remove the video from view in these countries.

Acting in this movie has brought curse in Garcia’s life. She has been fired from her job. That’s not all. She has also received death threats. When she saw the 14 minute trailer in YouTube, she understood that this film was a “hateful anti-Islamic production”.

Garcia said, “My whole life has been turned upside down in every aspect. My family has been threatened. I think it’s demoralising, degrading. I think it needs to come off [YouTube].”

So, Garcia filed a complaint on September 19, before the Superior Court of the State of California for the county of Los Angeles saying that she had been mis-leaded and deceived by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. And therefore requested the court to order YouTube to pull out the video from public viewing. But, on September 20, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Luis Lavin declined to order YouTube to remove the controversial footage of the movie “Innocence of Muslims”.

Judge Lavin said, “The request for a temporary restraining order is denied. The plaintiff has not shown a likelihood to prevail on the merits.” Lavin also said that Garcia had not been able to produce an agreement related to her role in the film, and as a third-party, Google and YouTube were protected from liability.

The White House had requested YouTube to review the footage to ensure that the video hasn’t violated the media giant’s (YouTube’s) terms of service. But Google responded to the White House’s request saying that the film was “clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube.”
