ISLAM FOR DUMMIES WAS THE WORKING TITLE FOR AN ANIMATED FILM I DIRECTED IN 2010 FOR BOLD CREATIVE. THE FILM WAS BASED ON A YEAR OF RESEARCH, INCLUDING TESTIMONIES FROM  TEENAGERS WHO HAVE RETURNED FROM TERROR TRAINING CAMPS ON THE AFGHANISTAN-PAKISTAN BORDER. THOUSANDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE FROM ACROSS EUROPE HAVE ATTENDED SUCH CAMPS SINCE 9/11, MANY RECRUITED WITH PROPAGANDA DEPICTING AN IDEALISED AND UNREALISTIC VISION OF ‘JIHAD’ -THAT ULTIMATELY LEADS THEM TO BECOME DISILLUSIONED AND ULTIMATELY REJECT IT. ISLAM FOR DUMMIES AIMED TO PROVIDE YOUNG BRITISH MUSLIMS WITH AN ALTERNATIVE VIEWPOINT AND A CHALLENGE TO THE EXISTING PROPAGANDA. THE FILM’S RELEASE WAS PREVENTED IN 2011 BY THE UK GOVERNMENT.
