Killing in the Name
Watch the trailer
Ashraf was celebrating the happiest day of his life when an Al-Qaeda suicide bomber walked into his wedding and killed his father and 26 other family members in front of his eyes. Now, he’s rising from tragedy to break the silence in the Muslim community on the taboo subject of terrorism. From a recruiter for Al-Qaeda, to an Islamic militant behind one of the world’s worst terrorist attacks, to a madrassa filled with young boys ready to fulfill the duty of jihad, Ashraf takes us on a harrowing journey around the world to see if one man can speak truth to terror, and begin to turn the global tide.
Killing in the Name made its US broadcast debut 14 September 2011 on HBO. The premiere may have passed but it's not too late to show your support for survivors by hosting your own screening party of the film and getting involved with GSN.
