Sikh religion founder film screenings cancelled

By Peter Wilson
UNITED KINGDOM---A major cinema chain has cancelled all screenings of a film about the founder of the Sikh religion, after protesters in the West Midlands caused a cinema to be evacuated over concerns for safety. Hundreds of movie-goers were asked to leave on Sunday night after a sit-in protest at Cineworld in Bentley Bridge, Wolverhampton. Some people said the film Nanak Shah Fakir was blasphemous to the Sikh religion. [link]
