What is the Malaysian government afraid of?
Malaysian censors have passed Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ uncut, but have stipulated that only Christians may see the movie.
Officials have granted access to all ages when the picture opens in a few weeks by awarding the religious epic a U rating, but steered clear of opening it up to the south-east Asian country's non-Christian groups.
Citing a concern for disparate sensibilities, film censorship board secretary Lukeman Saaid told Variety: "It's a deeply religious movie. We live in a multiracial country and we needed to show sensitivity toward other religions, particularly Islam."
Fantastic, Christian kids in Malaysia can see an extremely violent movie, but we don't want to upset "adult" Muslim sensibilities.
