Synopsis by Mark Deming
Twenty percent of the world's population are followers of the Islamic faith, but in much of the West (especially the United States), the Muslim religion is little understood or acknowledged, and in the wake of the events of September 11, 2001, Muslims have found themselves the subjects of intense fear and scrutiny in many Western nations. Frontline: Muslims is a documentary which explores the basic tenants of the Muslim faith, and how the lessons of Islam are followed and interpreted by different people in different parts of the world, including Muslims in Egypt, Iran, Nigeria, Turkey, Malaysia, and the United States. Produced for the PBS series Frontline, Frontline: Muslims was first aired on May 9, 2002.
