Netflix faces backlash for publishing Quranic verse in film advertisement

By Muslim Mirror Staff

New Delhi: Members of the Muslim community are hurt as a Quranic verse has been published along with an advertisement of Netflix’s new anthology show ”Navarasa” on the front page of the Tamil newspaper Daily Thanthi.

As a result of the above, the hashtag “#BanNetflix” is currently trending on Twitter, with people demanding for the poster to be scrapped.

Islamic organisation Raza Academy tweeted that this is an ”insult” to the Quran. They further demanded strict action against Netflix India.

‘Navarasa’, a nine-film anthology jointly produced by Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan was released today on Netflix. This is an amalgamation of nine short films based on nine ‘rasas’ or human emotions – anger, compassion, courage, disgust, fear, laughter, love, peace and wonder.

The analogy has received appreciation from Netizens on social media but a section of people seems angry due to use of the Quranic verse in the aforementioned advertisement.
