Muslim, Actually

£9.99

Why are Muslim men portrayed as inherently violent? Does the veil violate women’s rights? Is Islam stopping Muslims from integrating? Across western societies, Muslims are more misunderstood than any other minority. But what does it mean to believe in Islam today, to have forged your beliefs and identity in the shadow of 9/11 and the War on Terror? Dismantling stereotypes from both inside and outside the faith, ‘Muslim, Actually’ shows that while we may think we know all about Islam we are often wrong about even the most basic facts.
