"For a gay filmmaker, filming in Saudi Arabia presents two serious challenges: filming is forbidden in the country and homosexuality is punishable by death. For filmmaker Parvez Sharma, however, these were risks he had to assume as he embarked on his Haji pilgrimage, a journey considered the greatest accomplishment and aspiration within Islam, his religion."--Container

A jihad for love : Islam like you've never seen it( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Der Film setzt sich mit der Situation homosexueller Menschen in islamischen Ländern auseinander, denen bei strenger Auslegung des Korans in ihren Heimatländern drastische Strafen bis zur Steinigung drohen. Er wirbt für Toleranz und sucht nach Wegen, um Religion und das Recht auf die eigene Sexualität in Einklang zu bringen. Der aufrichtige Erstlingsfilm entstand in fünfjähriger Recherchearbeit; er befragt gläubige homosexuelle Moslems nach ihren Erfahrungen und danach, wie sie mit der Unterdrückung ihrer sexuellen Bedürfnisse leben.
