Mumbai, Sept 15 (IBNS): In a strong message, musician AR Rahman has dismissed the fatwa issued against him for composing music for a film named Muhammad: The Messenger of God.
He said he did not direct the film and just composed music for the same.
 
This comes after a Sunni Muslim group allegedly issued a fatwa recently against Rahman and the film's director Majid Majidi, reported Variety. 
 
In his Facebook post, Rahman stated: "I didn't direct or produce the film I just did the music. My spiritual experiences of working on the film are very personal and I would prefer not to share these. My decision to compose the music for the film was made in good faith and with no intention of causing offence." 
 
Addressed to those who "have been aware of the recent events concerning" Rahman wrote: "What if I had the good fortune of meeting Allah and he asked me on the Judgement day, 'I gave you faith, talent, money, fame and health... why did you not do music for my beloved Muhammad (sals) film? A film whose conception was to unite humanity, clear misconceptions and spread my message." 
 
Many celebrities expressed solidarity with Rahman on Twitter.
 
Actress Shabana Azmi tweeted: "@arrahman i stand in solidarity with you.Raza Academy has no locus standi.They issued a fatwa against me too and i just ignored them."
 
Actor Kabir Bedi posted: "SUPPORT A R Rahman, facing a fatwa for his music in Iranian Majid Majidi's respectful "Muhammad: The Messenger of God". Jai ho, @arrahman!"
