Make Me a Muslim

A growing number of young white British women are converting to Islam. This BBC documentary film reveals why so many young girls are giving up the life of partying, drinking and wearing whatever they want to join a religion some people associate with the oppression of women.
In this BBC film, Shanna Bukhari unveils the highs and lows of five girls as they embrace their new faith. From adapting to a religion that allows a man to marry up to four wives to the acceptance of friends and family, it isn't always easy.
For many of these new young Muslims telling their family and friends about their conversion is hard, so the last thing they want is to tell millions of viewers. Filmmaker Shanna Bukhari describes how she was lucky to meet women who were frank and funny, and who could express how important their new faith was to them.
