About the show:

Across the world, passionately held religious faith inspires conflict and violence. From Yangon to Utah, some believers preach intolerance – even murder.  Mobeen Azhar is a journalist and film maker: his Muslim family is from Pakistan but he grew up between two worlds in Britain. He has seen first-hand how beliefs can fuel intolerance. In this 5-part series, Mobeen embarks on an epic journey to find out why religious beliefs that preach a message of compassion, can be harnessed to serve very different ends.
