        We Shall Resist

We Shall Resist

This play exposes how Islam can be misused to ensure personal and political gains, to gratify the libido, and to convert non-Muslims by force. Opening in a traditional South Asian (nautanki) folk style of directly addressing the audience, and thus making the performance self-reflexive by nature, Hum Rokaen Gae has a narrator who relates the tale. The narrator announces that he will turn back time and take the audience to a distant past that is ushered in by a period song to the accompaniment of live music and dance.
