MUSLIMS IN AMERICA is an in depth expose on the experience of Americans of Islamic faith fifteen months into the Trump presidency. ATV- Pakistan conducted over thirty interviews with religious, cultural, business, and community leaders around Detroit, Chicago, and New York City. Many Muslim Americans report that the US offers opportunities like no other nation on Earth while others express grave concern over the current state of politics. MUSLIMS IN AMERICA explores the history of the Islamic faith in the US dating back centuries and the contributions that Muslim communities have had on this country.
After the 2016 presidential election and the widespread coverage of the Muslim ban many Pakistanis have a negative perception about the treatment of Muslims in the United States. MUSLIMS IN AMERICA shows US cities with thriving Muslim populations in Trump’s America practicing Islam with no problem and living peaceful lives. Muslims in general and Pakistanis in particular have succeeded in making valuable contributions to the diverse US society.
