Darren Aronofksy's 'Noah' Banned In UAE, Qatar, Bahrain Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' has been banned in the UAE.

Darren Aronofsky's epic Noah starring Russell Crowe has been banned in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain because it could offend Muslims. The decision comes after the movie sparked controversy amongst Christians in the U.S, prompting Paramount Pictures to add a disclaimer to its marketing material, saying that "artistic license has been taken" in retelling the story of the great flood.

Now, the director of media content at the National Media Center in the United Arab Emirates, Juma Al-Leem told the Associated Press that the movie will not be allowed in cinemas because it contradicts a generally held taboo in Islam of depicting a prophet.

"There are scenes that contradict Islam and the Bible, so we decided not to show it," he said, "It is important to respect these religions and not show the film."

Al-Azhar in Egypt issued an edict saying it objects to Noah because it violates Islamic law by depicting a prophet and that it could "provoke the feelings of believers"....
