Dracula and the Villification of Muslims

I thought this was an interesting read. Please read the full article.

As a New Statesman article recently put it: “The vilification of Islām has reached such heights that when the Sultan Muḥammad Fātiḥ is cast opposite history’s bloodiest psycho-tyrant, it’s Dracula who emerges as the tragic hero.”
What is apparent from the film is that it recreates evil as good and good as evil. It reaffirms the narrative which is prevalent in current times and the strategy deployed against Muslims. Aa famous statement from Malcolm X comes to mind when he said:
“If you are not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”
