Tasteless? British Channel 4 showing comedy movie about Muslim terrorists close to 9/11 anniversary

British Channel 4 announced that it will be airing a controversial comedy movie about a group of  stupidly inept Muslim suicide bombers as part of broadcast activities to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 terror attack on the U.S.

According to a Daily Mail report, the movie called Four Lions, is a 2010  comedy by Chris Morris. Channel 4 will show the movie a few days before the 9/11 memorials. According to inside sources in Channel 4, Chris Morris had pushed to have the movie shown on the day of the 9/11 anniversary but authorities at Channel 4 resisted.

The movie is a  "black comedy" about a group of home-grown British terrorists who stupidly bungled their way through a plan to kill thousands of people at the London Marathon. Channel 4 will show the comedy along with factual documentaries including a reconstruction documentary about the killing of Osama Bin Laden by U.S. Navy Seals.

Jay Hunt, chief creative officer at Channel 4, revealed the plan to show the movie at the Edinburgh Television Festival. Jay Hunt said:

I’ve just had an interesting and rather robust conversation with Chris Morris about Four Lions and the scheduling of that and how close it is to 9/11.I think we should absolutely continue to push those boundaries. It is going out in the next week-and-half or so. It is not going out on 9/11 itself because we have got a lot of other programming. But it is around then because it speaks to that issue.’

    My girlfriend always went to the World Trade Towers every morning at 8:00 to visit clients but this morning of 9/11, she took off from work to take me to the doctor. The phone rang and she said "Turn on your television. A plane just crashed into the WTT!" I said "OMG! You would have been there if you didn't take off!" All day long family and friends were calling asking if she was alright. No one could believe she took off from work that day. She never takes even a day off from work. Love works in mysterious ways of warning people.

    This is one of those things which often makes us humans feel helpless in the hand of fate and predisposes us to "God feelings." I can only congratulate you and you love on this piece of good fortune
