Directed by award-winning writer-director Ridley Scott, the film relates how Moses helped Israelite slaves flee the persecution of Egypt's Pharaoh Ramses by parting the Red Sea to let them cross safely.But it contains "religious and historical mistakes," according to the National Media Council, charged with vetting films for release in the UAE."The film shows Moses not as a prophet but as just a preacher of peace," the council's director of media content tracking Juma Obaid al-Leem said, adding that the storyline contradicts the holy books.In addition to his place in the Christian and Jewish faiths, Moses is also revered by Muslims as a prophet, not unlike Mohammad.Leem said the film had also fallen afoul of the council for its depiction of Moses receiving the revelation from God through a child.
