TAQWACORE: The Birth of Punk Islam

Omar Majeed’s Taqwacore courts that controversy, that deliberate antagonism, in nearly every scene. The result is a fresh, fast-paced slap in the face!” -MONTREAL GAZETTE


Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam follows Michael and his kindred spirits as they travel across the U.S. in their green school bus, challenging Muslims and non-Muslims with punchy anthems like Sharia Law in the U.S.A. Their spiritual odyssey then leads them to Pakistan, where they bring punk to the streets of Lahore and reconnect with Islam in a bold new way.
