Among the Believers Regie Hemal Trivedi, Mohammed Naqvi


The filmmakers inject a note of hope into this dire world in the form of secular schools that have begun to open in the countryside to compete with the Red Mosque. Unfortunately, while these schools provide a good education, they cost money to attend, and here the film functions as a kind of progressive infomercial, implicitly urging viewers to support these fledgling institutions however they can as a way to fight the spread of radical Islam in the region.
