Struggling with Islam chronicles the struggle of one woman to reconcile her Self with the faith shewas born into. A faith she has felt no real connection with until September 11, 2001. As the tragedy of that day unfolded, Hina Khan repeatedly thought, please do not let it be a Muslim, please do not let it be a Muslim. That event led to a rude awakening which forced her to come to terms with what it means to be a Muslim and if this was a religion she wanted to be a part of. The 34 year-old broadcaster documents her journey as she meets a variety of Muslims from open and inclusive progressives to fundamentalists who celebrated the events of 9 11. This powerful, personal, first person film was filmed in Canada and England. DVD RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 2006.
