Muslim Punk
« on: October 13, 2009, 10:04:58 PM »
When Michael Muhammad Knight wrote his book The Taqwacores, he thought it was a fantasy.
The book, about a group of Muslim punk wannabes living a rock 'n' roll lifestyle in Buffalo, N.Y., has since come to life in a number of ways.

'We're not going to be spoon-fed our Islam. We're going to decide what it means to us.'
Michael Muhammad Knight
