Abed Fahed saddened over the obstruction of the Road to Kabul
The last thread of hope has been stripped away from the cast of the Ramadan controversial television drama series "The Road to Kabul" after the Arabic television channel MBC stopped the broadcasting of the series. The decision of MBC has caused the entire cast to fall into a state of extreme depression especially the lead actor Abed Fahed.
Abed revealed that the series was stopped after the producing company refused to give the remaining episodes and the reason behind this was the threats the producers, which are Qatar television, received. The actor added that he along with the entire cast had received threats even before the drama was broadcasted.
Abed stressed that he is certain that in a few months time the drama will be aired once more, adding that the losses caused by the stoppage during Ramadan will not be easily compensated.
The Arab satellite television channel MBC has ended its broadcast of the Ramadan television drama “The Road to Kabul” after having aired 8 episodes already. It has been revealed that the channel stopped its broadcast of the drama due to the fact that the production company refused to submit the remaining episodes of the series to the channel.
Officials at MBC made a public announcement to all their viewers stressing that they regret not being able to air the drama because they do not have copies of the remaining episodes and the company that produced the work refused to give any justifications for its actions.
When MBC insisted on taking the remaining episodes according to the contract signed with the producing company of the drama, the answer was that the drama faced some technical problems and that was the reason for not submitting the remaining episodes, but their excuse was not convincing and the problem may lead to court.
Officials at the Qatar Broadcasting television have decided to stop the airing of the “The Road to Kabul” on the notion that the drama was not complete in a technical sense. Management had made a public announcement that due to technical issues it does not make any sense to air the drama because it will have no true meaning.
An anonymous Islamist group had threatened everyone who took part in the drama in addition to all television stations who broadcast it. The threat was posted on the Internet and clearly said that anyone who has anything to do with airing the drama will be attacked, if not in the time being, their time will come in the very near future or even in one year. The threat added that no one will be forgotten no matter how long it takes to make their vengeance. The group had stressed that the facts portrayed in the drama are an insult and hold no truth to them. –Albawaba.com
