“Faith, Fear and Freedom”
Premieres Thursday December 20 at 7pm

WRAL Documentary 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.
