American Sharia comes to the UK! The Muslim comedy film of the year!

Penny Appeal, an international humanitarian charity, are exclusively hosting the UK screenings of the highly anticipated Muslim comedy film, American Sharia.

The family-friendly film will be shown in  22-city’s in the UK from February 2015.

The movie tells the story of a Muslim detective who has his own prejudices against Islam, following constant exposure to Islamophobia. His transformational journey, which results in ending rising Islamophobic tensions between the police and the community he serves is seen throughout the film.

American Sharia stars some of the world’s leading Muslim entertainers, including the movie’s main star and host of the tour, Omar Regan – a renowned Hollywood actor and household name for stand-up comedy.

“It’s an alternative form of entertainment, during a time where we are surrounded and exposited to increasing negativity and profanity. I’m really excited to watch my film with UK audiences and support Penny Appeal at the same time.”

The tour is an exclusive part of Penny Appeal’s charity extravaganza month, Smile Relief, which aims to raise money for orphans around the world.

Penny Appeal CEO, Aamer Naeem, adds: “Smile Relief is a special month where we’ll be encouraging people to download our fundraising pack and raise money for orphans. We’ll also be broadcasting a special telethon live on British Muslim TV during February.
