Netflix's new offering ‘Messiah’ has drawn controversy online, stirring up Muslim public opinion.
The trailer of upcoming series with obvious references to Imam Mahdi (AS), the twelve Shia Imam, ignited trends of ‘Anti-Christ Dajjal’ and ‘Messiah’ on social media.
The trailer has already created an upheaval on social media as users from across the globe are reacting to this controversy, a media report said.
The discussion revolved around how the Netflix series could distort the reality. Details on the reaction of Netflix are yet to be published.
The series will release in January 2020.
Imam Mahdi (AS) was born on the 15th day of the month of Sha’ban on the lunar calendar around 1,200 years ago.
He is known as the Savior among Shias, who believe he will reappear on earth as per divine decree, establishing peace and ridding the world of injustice, discrimination, and other instances of evil.
