Ohio Muslims Fearful After DVD Released in Newspapers

A non-profit group called the Clarion Fund paid to have a movie called "Obsession" delivered all over the country in last Sunday's newspapers. The Toledo Blade was one of them.

Local Muslims met in Perrysburg at the Islamic Center of greater Toledo Friday. They devised an official response about the DVD. Their message will be a full-page ad in the Blade. Muslims are worried about the way some Americans may react against them after seeing this movie.

The movie "Obsession" begins by saying it is a film about radical Islamic terror and that most Muslims are peaceful and do not support terror. But local Muslims don't see it that way.

"It doesn't show the good Muslims, too. If they were fair enough they would have a balancing act show the good and the bad," says Zaheer Hasan of the United Muslim Association of Toledo.

The Clarion Fund claims to be a non-profit group, but information on its web site is limited. Phone calls were not immediately returned. (MORE)
