Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has started to block an anti-Islamic movie in Malaysia following an official complaint lodged by the country’s Internet regulator. The movie made against Islam has badly hurt the emotions of Muslims across the globe.

The movie named as “Innocence of Muslims” has frustrated and angered the Muslims worldwide as the movie has represented Muslims as dishonest, corrupt, and violent as well as disrespected their beloved Prophet Mohammed.

A spokesman for YouTube, controlled by Google, said today that it has started to block the privately produced film’s clips according to its community guidelines. He further said that whenever a video clip violates the rules and the company is notified about it that it is against law; the company removes that clip after examining that content in detail.

On Saturday, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission requested Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) to remove the controversial movie video clips from You Tube. It is believed that few extremist Christians living in U.S have produced that anti-Islamic movie. Google has also blocked video contents in countries including India, Egypt, Libya and Indonesia.

Worldwide protests by the Muslim communities were held against the anti-Islamic movie. The Muslim protestors targeted U.S embassies and asked U.S to take legal actions against the producers of that film.
