Did the film try to cover too much?
|[Comment From Komal ]|
My view-- "jihad" speaks not of holy war but of spiritual struggle...do you agree ?
|[Comment From Eisha ]|
Does islam have room for this kind of cinema
|[Comment From Tina ]|
Hi Parvez, does money ever become a constraint for a young filmmaker like you ?
|[Comment From Michelle ]|
Any part you wish you had shot differently ?
|[Comment From Saurabh ]|
Hi Parvez, did you while filming at any point in time feel the desperate urge to leave your camera behind and run for cover !! Just a fun question !!
|[Comment From Yashika ]|
Hey! When does the movie release and where?
|[Comment From Saurabh ]|
How has the western world reacted to your film ?
|[Comment From Lokesh ]|
Parvez, if the world’s most popular religion denounces homosexuality, what sets this brand of anti-gay sentiment apart from others?
|[Comment From Mishi Raina ]|
Your film fails to address the issue of how has homophobia evolved in the Muslim world? Could you elaborate?
|[Comment From mr.coorg ]|
Those who write against Islam will always become famous! tatz what history tells us! example: salman rushdie, naipul, tasleema and there will be no doubt next in the number will be U, can u please comment on this?
|[Comment From Roshan ]|
Who was the film's most compelling subject ?
|[Comment From Naman ]|
If Islam is okay with polygamy, why not homosexuality?
|[Comment From Yasir ]|
I want to ask, just one thing. Have you read the Quran or are you a Muslim just by name? You need to follow Quran and Islam to be called a Muslim.
|[Comment From Imran ]|
I want to ask you the sole meaning of keeping this name
|[Comment From Noopur ]|
Parvez how long did it take you to make the film? Do you feel it's easier to be gay in India today as compared to say 7-8 yrs ago?
|[Comment From Surekha ]|
Parvez, even while exploring the religous and cultural differences of the gay community across Islamic countries, how did you manage to retain the commonality in all of them: that of Jihad?
|[Comment From Carla ]|
Have you ever been a victim of racism, manifested mostly in just getting around with your muslim names in western nations ?
|[Comment From Shailja ]|
One person’s terrorist is another persons freedom fighter- do you believe that's true ?
|[Comment From Tanmay ]|
Parvez, do you believe there still exists a sense of Muslim brotherhood around the world ? Any instance that makes you believe that ?
|[Comment From Akshit ]|
Parvez, through this film, could you reclaim the Islamic concept of a greater Jihad? What is Jihad, please explain.
|[Comment From Muneera ]|
Your film comes at a time when Section 377 of the Indian penal code has been successfully challenged. Do you believe acceptance of the film will now come by more easily ? also what's your view on the judgement
|[Comment From Rahul ]|
Parvez, do you disagree with any part of your film and feel you could have executed it better ?
|[Comment From Suhail Ahmed ]|
Kudos to Parvez to highlighted this thorny issue of homosxuality. Its natural desire one cannot deny it.
|[Comment From rahul ]|
the film is great. But what's the future?
|[Comment From Nadeem ]|
Almost of third of countries worldwide still criminalises same sex relationships and seven carry the death penalty for the offence. Parvez, what in your opinion will ensure a change in mindset?
|[Comment From Sunaina]|
Your film is an intelligent and honest appraisal of Islam as a multi-denominational religious experience. Share with us your most memorable thoughts or discoveries while shooting the fim?
|[Comment From Miraj Qureshi ]|
Parvez, we Muslims are members of the world's fastest growing religion, indeed the second largest. We are all waging several jihads within ourselves. Does the Jihad still continue for you?
|[Comment From Manisha ]|
Values of tolerance, of democracy, of free speech-- is that why you chose America?
|[Comment From vijay ]|
I am not sure about what the scriptures say, but both muslims and hindu fundamentalists are against homosexuals, much like Hitler was. We dont know yet if homosexual traits are conditioned or are genetic. Whatever the case may be, calling it un-natural is foolishness. If humans really blv in natural living then we should stop wearing clothes, using technology, cooking food, etc. since all this is un-natural too. What's your take?
|[Comment From Athar ]|
Well homosexuality is not illegal but prohibited not only in Islam but other major religions like Christianity, hinduism, etc. It is a major factor in rising cases ofHIV/AIDS. So don't know why we are promoting such an evil and that too by using Islam as a scapegoat and displaying it as a backward religion which has not upgraded but in fact it is a way of life decided by the creator (who knows much more than we do) and when HE commands us not to indulge then why do we question it when there are so many scientific proof out there. Parvez why are you trying to show that muslims will have to accept homo stuff, if we want to coexist? What is your take Parvez?
|[Comment From McLovin ]|
Hi I was wondering how the Muslim community reacts to the fact that you are gay and a Muslim? Considering the fact that homosexuality is illegal in Islam.
|[Comment From Deepak ]|
Parvez does this reflect your own thought with actors playing it out or are they projecting their own struggles?
