Abstract

The present article is about the ways Practical Muslims are represented in some post-9/11 literature and Media. It is very unfortunate that immediately after 9/11 there was hype created against Muslims across the globe and they were presented to the world as if all or at least the majority of the Muslims were terrorists. These misrepresentations mislead the world and the inhabitants of the advanced countries to give way to Islamophobia. This is a very unfortunate phenomenon and Muslims across the globe need to put strong hands together to find a way to counter it.

For the present research articles, the authors have limited their attention to The Spinner’s Tale, a novel written by a Pakistani novelist, Shahid Hamid. Being a novel written in English, this book is widely read across the globe. Another important point to keep in mind is that the main character, Sheikh Uzair Ahmad, is depicted as big Jihadi character who is mostly followed as role model by the other characters in the novel. This is very unfortunate that through the depiction of the characters Muslims are misrepresented. The details of the discussion will take place in the lines to follow.
