Islam in contemporary western society
In When Arabs Danced, director Jawad Rhalib asks questions about the effects of Muslim fundamentalism, basing himself on the story of his mother, who was a belly dancer. Not so long ago this Arab dance stood for sensuality and femininity, now Muslims often label it as unclean. How do artists look at it today? And more broadly: how do Muslims combine their faith with the contemporary European context? Imam Khalid Benhaddou, author of "Halal or not?", elaborates on this. He has been trying for years to build a bridge between his faith and the contemporary European society in which he lives.
