The controversial Danish anti-Islamist Lars Hedegaard is among the backers of a new controversial animation film about the life of the Islamic prophet Mohammed and his marriage to a six-year-old girl

‘Aisha and Muhammad’, which is scheduled to be released tomorrow, was made by Pakistani director Imran Firasat and co-produced by a number of European anti-Islamists, including Hedegaard, who survived an assassination attack last year.

“Here in Europe we live in constant fear of Islamic terrorism,” Hedegaard says in the trailer of the film. “Islam is increasingly robbing us of our freedom of expression and shrinking our liberties.”

The video, which does not flatter the prophet – claims to portray Mohammed as he was conveyed in the Koran, including his beliefs and teachings. That’s how one can understand Islam, Hedegaard contends.

“First and foremost, we have to understand the prophet Mohammed, his life and his teachings,” Hedegaard said.

The animation, which is quite crude, depicts the prophet saying things like: “Why didn’t you marry a virgin so you could fondle her” and “She is beautiful and when she grows up and if I am still alive I will marry her” – quotes that the video claims are said by Mohammed in the Koran.

Hans Erling Jensen, the chairman of the board of the organisation Free Speech Europe, was also a co-producer of the film.

The police wouldn’t reveal to the Copenhagen Post newspaper whether any demonstrations were planned or any trouble was expected, while an Islamic organisation, Det Islamiske Trossamfund I Danmark, declined to comment regarding the matter.
