Beyond Fitna

Beyond Fitna is a 2008 English-language Iranian documentary film.

The film was produced by NGO Islam and Christianity in response to Fitna (the title being an Arabic term that means "disagreement and division among people") by Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, which made the case that Islamic texts promote violence and intolerance.

The NGO's spokesman, Mohammad Karimi, explains that the film was made in response to rising anti-Islamic sentiments in the West, seeking to find harmony and respect among all monotheistic religions. As such, it involved feedback from various religious scholars, as well as professional documentarians fluent in English, Persian, and Arabic.
