The Zamzam Project is mainly concerned with subjects that are the core issues standing in accusation against Islam. These concerns have snowballed into burning issues and put Muslims in a defensive situation. Sadly unprepared, Muslims have lined up to be the scapegoat enemy.
I scrutinize the history books and popular public opinion and cross-examine the political stance in the West. Noam Chomsky was an inspiration when he said:
The bewildered herd is a problem. We’ve got to prevent their roar and trampling. We’ve got to distract them. They should be watching the Super-bowl or sitcoms or violent movies. Every once in a while you call on them to chant meaningless slogans like ‘Support our troops.
You’ve got to keep them pretty scared, because unless they’re properly scared and frightened of all kinds of devils that are going to destroy them from outside or inside or somewhere, they may start to think, which is very dangerous, because they’re not competent to think.
Therefore it’s important to distract them and marginalize them.
- Media Control by Noam Chomsky
Have you ever noticed that the fanatics and radicals get the airtime and normal people with legitimate concerns and views are not given a platform to clarify anything? Everyone is caught up with various distractions and the end result is a chaotic misunderstanding of vital issues, resulting in mislaid anger and the demonization of an innocent populace.
Over the last few years, I noticed only a handful of people have attempted to deal with some of these accusations but have scarcely made any impact. In order to be impartial, I have utilized non-Islamic sources and western scholars to argue my cases. This is my attempt to finally deal with all the accusations and conclude all the controversial matters.
Zamzam is a humble project motivated by a sincere faith in Islam and a calling to help my fellow man understand the burning issues of the day.
As an artist thinking beyond the corporate layers, I was driven to present a considered alternative view to inform and prompt further debate and ultimately cause a shift in society’s general understanding. With in-depth understanding, the films aim to present ideas, defense and solutions, seeing things that are wrong and taking action in a positive way.
