An unusual coalition of Christian and Muslim groups in India called for a ban on the controversial film The Da Vinci Code.
Leaders from both groups said the film, which depicts Jesus as a married man with progeny, insults the common beliefs of both groups.

Muslims also believe in Jesus as a prophet although they disagree with Christians on details of his life and on the question of his divinity.
Both groups called for protests if the film airs, and Syed Noori, president of the Mumbai-based Raza Academy even threatened a violent response.
The Da Vinci Code movie, if it follows the path of the novel, also portrays the conservative Opus Dei organization as a murderous group bent on hiding the truth of the life of Jesus.
