Massive demand brings forward online release of Jihad: a story of the others


We are delighted to hear that since Deeyah Khan’s remarkable and thought-provoking TEDxExeter talk went online in May this year, her production company Fuuse has been “inundated with requests from people all over the world asking to see her film Jihad: a story of the others.

The good news is that TEDxExeter will be showing the film in November this year at Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery (RAMM). Deeyah and Manwar Ali (who features in the film, telling of his transition from jihadi to someone who works to prevent radicalisation) will be at the screening and will lead discussion afterwards. Sign up for our newsletter (on our website) to be first to find out when the tickets go on sale.

If you can’t wait until November to see the film, the even better news is that Fuuse has made the film available online. They planned to do so at the end of the year, but have released it early due to the massive demand caused by Deeyah’s TEDxExeter talk. You can watch Jihad: as story of others here.

Manwar Ali also told his story in a TEDxExeter talk this year – watch Reclaiming Jihad here
