“Faith, Fear and Freedom”
Muslims have been living, working and raising families in our state for decades. Many say life changed for them after 9/11. They say they still feel the suspicion of non-Muslims who associate their Islamic faith with terrorism. A new WRAL Documentary, “Faith, Fear and Freedom” examines the challenges Muslims face living in our predominately non-Muslim society. The documentary airs Thursday Dec. 20 at 7:00pm and is hosted by WRAL News anchor David Crabtree.
Faith: This documentary examines the importance of the Islamic faith to devout Muslims, the differences between Christianity and Islam and the myths many have about Islam and terrorism.
Fear: This documentary examines the fear some people have towards Muslims based on the acts of radical Islamic extremists, including some right here in North Carolina.
Freedom: This documentary examines the constitutional freedom of religion that appeals to many Muslims in our state and the conflict between that freedom and anti-Islamic discrimination.
