Sabina England is a self-described ‘deaf punk Muslim playwright’ who has found community and feminism in the Muslim punk movement tacqwacores, which started in reality as a reaction to a 2003 novel of the same name. Read about her upcoming film and the tacqwacores in general in Sara Yasin’s piece ‘Muslim Feminist Punk: Helping Destroy Stereotypes of Gender, Religion and Race.’

Before TAQWACORES was born, there were already South Asian punks, Muslim punks, and the whatnot, you know, only that the world ignored them. There was an excellent short story called With Your Tongue Down My Throat (published in 1987/88) written by Hanif Kureishi, which involves British Asian youths (Pakistani and South Asian), punks, and South Asian immigrants, set in England during the early 1980s. Read it or die.
I HAVE TO FIND & READ THIS
