"In the Name of God ", Come See this Movie

The Islam in Conversation series run by the Muslim Student Association continues tomorrow with the screening of “Khuda Kay Liye (In the Name of God).” This Pakistani film weaves together events on three continents in order to explain the post-9/11 religious climate in Pakistan. It portrays the difficulties experienced by Pakistanis living in Europe and the US, while simultaneously probing the intra-Islamic tensions (“liberal” versus “fundamentalist”) within Pakistan’s Muslim community. This film was awarded the Silver Pyramid Award for Best Picture at the 31st Cairo International Film Festival. The screening will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the film with Noumaan Shamsi ’10 and other students from Wesleyan’s Pakistani community.

Date: Monday, Feb 23
Time: 7:00 PM
