Egypt’s main Salafi party said Friday it was planning a new documentary film on the life of Prophet Mohammed, a local newspaper reported.

The documentary “What if the world did not witness Mohammed?” will be half-hour long and in addition to Arabic, it will be translated into English and French, Egypt Independent newspaper cited the Salafi Nour Party as saying.

Salafi leaders of Dawa and Nour Parties have already formed a team of journalists to write the script, Nour Party spokesperson, Mohamed Nour, said, adding that they have invited actors and singers to participate in the documentary.

According to him, the documentary will take one month to be finished.

It is not clear if the documentary being produced is a reaction to the recently U.S.-produced film “Innocence of Muslims,” which mocked Prophet Mohammed.

“Innocence of Muslims” created violent outcry in many Muslim countries. On Friday, three were killed in Sudan, three in Tunisia and one in Lebanon as protests raged against the anti-Islam film.

Protests were also reported in Iraq, Egypt and India.
