NETWORK PRESSURED OVER POSITIVE PORTRAYAL OF MUHAMMAD
"Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet" Airs Tonight on PBS

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/18/02) - CAIR has learned that PBS is receiving heavy pressure from those who object to the positive portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad in the documentary, "Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet," to be broadcast beginning tonight on that network.

American Muslims and other people of conscience are asked to contact the network to offer thanks for the decision to air the program and to urge that PBS not buckle under the pressure being exerted by bigots and Islamophobes.

A San Francisco Chronicle review of the documentary called it "riveting, informative and inspiring." The reviewer said: "Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet" should almost be required viewing for non-Muslims. It sets the record straight about a man who has been demonized by those who know little to nothing about the substance of his life or his message. And it makes clear that Islam is a peaceful religion followed by people who are devoted to faith and helping others, even if some adherents (such as Osama bin Laden) distort its teachings..."

On the other hand, in yesterday's New York Post, Muslim-basher Daniel Pipes suggested that the network be sued for its positive portrayal of the Prophet.
