In a documentary tonight, writer and director Nasfim Haque wants to give Islam a positive spin. From AIM magazine:
Under the guise of her company Jihad Media, she sets off to show the religion in a positive light while trying to enlist the help of well known TV personalities.
She says: “As a Muslim myself, I feel Islam has recently been saddled with an image problem, quite unfairly in my opinion, so I wanted to twist this around to ask the real questions about religion in secular society.”
‘Don’t Panic I’m Islamic‘ will see her ask publicist Max Clifford for advice; get Bernard Manning to make her Muslim Kurdish protÃ©gÃ© funny; try and persuade ITV to make Face for Islam a rival to X factor; get Trouble TV to fall for Mighty Mecca Morphing Muslims as a rival to The Simpsons; put together a National Muslims are Nice day and more.
Should make good viewing. BBC Three tonight at 00:25am.
