Rasim Sashid, attorney and casting director for Islamic Women in Entertainment International, says Harvey Weinstein has converted to Islam and agreed to head the newly-formed Rotherham Studios United Kingdom.
RSUK’s first project will be a feature-length Muslim feminist action film about community warriors who preempt the sexual abuse of women through the strict application of Islamic law. The working title of the film is rumored to be “Majority Report.”
According to Sashid, secular state laws have failed to protect women because they only punish the actor once the act is completed, they don’t prevent the act in the first place.
“That’s where Islamic films can help,” he said. “States are not moral actors but people are, and any expectation that we can simply pass a law to stop sexual abuse is foolish. Islamic teachings and the Prophet Muhammad’s example provide a solution that no state truly can.”
RSUK’s goal is to present Islamic concepts to movie audiences in a graphically exciting way, said Sashid, who provided a few pages from the script of “Majority Report.”
Based on verses from the Quran, the script establishes a world where women are equal beings, protected by a community of men who provide for every financial, sexual, social, and fashion need. When threatened by a counter-Jihad of Buddhist, Hindu, and Judeo-Christian invaders, the Islamic community warriors respond by ensuring that women maintain autonomy and self-determination.
“This involves a lot of harems and preemptive beheadings,” said Sashid, “but we’re confident the Motion Picture Association will change the current X rating to PG-13. Either that, or we’ll just release the film on YouTube.”
Weinstein was unavailable for comment at press time, but Sashid said he would make the producer available under his new Islamic name for a future interview.
“We can’t yet reveal Weinstein’s new name, but if revelations about his sexual abuse shocked you, then you’re dangerously ignorant to reality,” Sashid said. “The greater disease is arrogance, unaccountability, societal apathy. Male sexual abuse of women will only decrease when men stop abusing women. Islam and Prophet Muhammad provide a practical solution, and RSUK will do its part to bring that solution to the world.”
