Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government has asked the central government to block access to an anti-Islam video posted on YouTube, saying that it can potentially cause a law and order problem in the state.

"We have approached the central government asking them to block the 'Innocence of Muslims' video on YouTube, as it can cause a law and order problem in the state," Home Commissioner B.R. Sharma told on Friday.

The film made in the US and uploaded on video-sharing website YouTube has caused world-wide furore among Muslims and drawn anti-US protests in several countries including Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Israel, Iran and Iraq.
