Muslims Like Us

Put ten British Muslims with contrasting world views in a house together and press ‘record.' What emerges is a passionate debate, honest disagreements, humour and moments of insight that reveal what is like to be a Muslim in Britain today.

On the surface, Britain's 2.7 million Muslims are united in faith. But behind closed doors, in Muslim homes across the country, there is ongoing discussion about what and who best represents Islam.

Labels like 'Sunni', 'Shi'a', 'liberal', 'conservative' and 'moderate' do not do it justice. Will the real British Muslim please stand up?

She or he is faced with competing and contradictory voices. Some suggest an orthodox version of the faith is entirely at home in Britain. Others demand compromises to be made by Muslims in order to integrate. In this unique and bold social experiment, a two-part BBC Two series, Muslims Like Us, witnesses these dilemmas played out for real.
