Islam: The Untold Story (2012)

In this controversial and ground-breaking documentary, historian Tom Holland who is taking the chance to enter the risky waters, suggests that we have absence of historical evidence about the beginning and rise of the Islam. Muslims believe that from the very beginning, the great Arab conquest were all about Islam. But in the 7th century, you can barely find a new religion called Islam anywhere in the historical records.

Even Mecca may not have been the real birthplace of the prophet. The earliest biographies we have were written nearly 200 years after the prophet's lifetime. This is a world founded on stories of Mohammed.

It is not suprising that the program received a torrent of complaints after the broadcast.

A well made Documentary, was fun to watch.

My ISP has a private torrent server where we share our files etc. Couple of days back I shared this documentary. The admin deleted it by saying it is CONTROVERSIAL. I asked him julian assange's work is also controversial, does that mean his word need to be keep hidden?

And after a hot conversation on the facebook group they banned me from the server as well as facebook group.

I am from Bangladesh, which is predominantly a Muslim country. But our culture is not like Afghanistan or Pakistan by nature. Our peoples are very tolerant and hospitable by nature. But incidents happens, sometimes for ignorance, sometimes for political deception.

Keep going. An excellent blog you are running. I like it very much.

I'm not sure what was the idea of the documentary.
As an atheist I found it quite boring and also long-winded ;
I don't think any religion has any more substance
than islam (or less, for that matter).
Excuse me for my english, I'm not a native speaker ...

"I found it quite boring and also long-winded"

concur. You could also add "light-as-a-feather".
