Main Bhi Muslim

3 POSTS 0 COMMENTS
'To be, or not to be, that is the question’ – a state of constant confusion that being a Hindustani Muslim (or Indian Muslim) brings with it. 'Main Bhi Muslim', the podcast, is born out of this confusion that co-hosts Mariyam and Sabika bring to their audience's ears fortnightly, on Friday evenings. The podcast is a surreal reclamation space for individuality and plurality within the context of being an Indian, being a Muslim and everything in between. Give your good ear to their coming-out podcast, to hear out their long-closeted inner Muslim. This is a journey where these two Hindustani Muslims share their lived experiences and expectations to just be... to just breathe.
