A thread by @SwalihaAsiya on negative stereotyping of Muslim characters by Indian or International shows.

The entertainment industry owes the #Muslims of the world more than an apology.

The 'Muslim' shown on TV is never a realistic reflection of the actual Muslim.
He/She is either painted in black or white, with either the character honing negative ISIS-kinda extremism or a completely watered down version of a Hollywood Muslim, who parties and drinks etc.
Where are the real caricatures of a Muslim being showcased on TV?

It's either the Taliban or al-Qaida oriented terrorism spreading, suicide bombing version all over International TV or the Hollywood Muslim who has discarded the Muslim identity as if it were a cancerous malady.

Assalamulaikum, I am @SanobarFatma and will be curating @TheMuslimsofIN today and tomorrow and will be talking about two things we love discussing - #movies and #politics.

Films have a large influence on both culture and mindset, and can serve as a mean for politicians and propaganda.
Taking into account the growing impact in both public opinion and politics, the #stereotyping of #Muslims has created a negative influence
Muslims form the largest minority in India and yet when it comes to their portrayal they are either #mythified #stereotyped or #missing.
They are either the very bad guys or a good Vs bad lecturing into what Islam actually is. There is no portrayal of a “normal Muslim”

3.) Inevitably, they would follow-up with some version of "no, I mean what is your background? Chinese or Japanese?" A.) WTF does it matter B.) Does anyone come up to you and ask - "hey, you Irish or German or Scottish or French or Dutch or etc...
