MUSLIM "ALIEN" IN AMERICA

Muslim World

A new TV comedy that hits the airwaves in US touches on deeply rooted misconceptions about Muslims and their faith in post 9/11 America through the story of a Pakistani kid coming to live with an American family. “Aliens in America” features a middle-class Wisconsin family that decides to take a foreign exchange student into their home, hoping that his company would help their socially-awkward teenage son, Justin. They get an observant Muslim teen clad in his native garb. The boy finds hardships awaiting him in host’s and in school where the teacher introduces Raja to her class as “a Pakistani who practices Muslimism.” As he tries to get past the misery of his first day at school, Raja draws wondering looks from Justin as he performs his daily prayer. “It (prayer) gives me strength in difficult times,” he explains to his curious American buddy.
