BISHKEK, September 18 (Itar-Tass) — Official Bishkek condemns the “Innocence of Muslims” film, spokesman for the republic’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Nurzhigit Kadyrbekov said here on Tuesday.
According to him, the film “is provocative,” it insults and “shows Prophet Muhammad in a bad light.” At the same time, Bishkek officials believe that in this situation it is absolutely “unacceptable to take violent action against diplomats that have a special status.”
Representatives of the Muslim clergy and a number of non-governmental organisations of Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday issued a statement condemning the authors of the idea of the controversial film shot in the United States. In particular, member of the national parliament from the Ar-Namys faction Tursunbai Bakir said at a press conference that he did not exclude the possibility that he can lead possible protests actions in the country. “Either this movie is legally recognised extremist and its show is prohibited will, or protest actions will be started in Kyrgyzstan at the US Embassy and at the US airbase Manas located at the country’s airport,” he said.
Meanwhile, no mass protests have been staged in Kyrgyzstan near the US facilities. However, according to information from various sources, security measures have been stepped up in the US Embassy in Bishkek and at Manas Airbase.
