Ok so I'll admit to not having had the chance to read the entire article, but what i had time to read, i found it interesting and wanted to post a link to the doc, and the site i found out about it on. It's not necessarily religious; way more political, actually. (and shout out to the all female and queer-fronted band in the movement, 'The Secret Trial Five'.)
Here's another link to Muslim Punk from of a poster on afterellen.com-www.myspace.com/muslimpunk. I'm listening to this page now. Sounds great.

WOW, i love it! And they seem like the REAL deal, too. There's actually alot ov UG sub-kulture through-out many [predominately] Muslim countries, including a particularly nasty Black Metal scene in Iran. Thanks for posting this GodsavetheQueer, hopefully it'll get much uglier!
That film was great!! Saw it a couple months ago. Finding power in punk is something common to people who might feel misunderstood and disrespected in their homeland. And using that as your voice outward, I totally get it.
