Unity Productions Foundation (UPF) in partnership with the Muslim Alliance of Indiana (MAI) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) of Carmel is pleased to host Enemy of the Reich, a film from award-winning executive producers Alex Kronemer and Michael Wolfe (Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet) and Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker Rob Gardner (Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World/Arab and Jew: Return to the Promise Land).
Throughout the 1930′s, an unimaginable evil tore through Europe, as Hitler’s Third Reich terrorized its way to domination. During these tumultuous times, a young Muslim woman living in Paris found her calling. Noor Inayat Khan grew up in a home that fostered faith and hope. Leading with her heart, she overcame her quiet nature and joined Winston Churchill’s covert operation to give the Allies a new chance at victory. This is her story.
Narrated by Academy Award winning actress Dame Helen Mirren.

PRAISE FOR THE FILM…
Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story is a moving account of a young Muslim woman who sacrificed her life to combat the brutal domination of Nazi Germany. As a leader in the international movement to reconcile Jews and Muslims, this compelling film is a source of inspiration to me. Rabbi Marc Schneier, President and Co-Founder of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding
I prayed for Noor and all those who suffered when I visited Dachau. American Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus: we all need to know her story, it can bring us closer together. Imam Mohammad Magid, President, Islamic Society of North America
Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story reveals the courage, strength and compassion of Noor Khan as her Muslim faith inspired her to risk everything to battle Nazi oppression. She is a source of inspiration for anyone working for freedom and justice today. Dalia Mogahed, co-author of “Who Speaks for Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think”
When & Where
Muslim Alliance of Indiana
THE MUSLIM ALLIANCE OF INDIANA
...advocate, collaborate, empower, engage, serve
After the events of 9/11, misinformation regarding Muslims and Islam rapidly spread throughout the nation and Indiana alike. A small group of leaders within the Muslim Hoosier community realized that the most effective path to dispel these misconceptions was to rally Muslim Hoosiers together and to encourage civic engagement. From this small group, the Muslim Alliance of Indiana was born.
Since its inception, the MAI has worked consistently for an Indiana that not only ensures social justice for Muslims, but for all Hoosiers. We recognize that in bringing Muslims together, we reignite those tenets of our faith that lead us to serve and to dedicate ourselves to a better world. We are committed to developing high-quality educational, outreach, and social, programs designed to foster cooperation and understanding both with other religious communities as well as civic and service organizations.
As the Muslim Alliance of Indiana celebrates its second decade of service, our focus areas are: Access to Justice, Civic Engagement, and Interfaith Cooperation.
