BURAAQ - The Muslim Superhero We Need
In the last two decades, we have seen an indescribable boom in the superhero genre. Marvel and DC became the biggest sources for providing this content to consumers. As a result, today, every child can name their characters. On the other hand, one thing which these movies lack is diversity. The movies never seem to represent or uplift any minority, guiding children to be more respectful towards every ethnicity and religion. Since 2001 Muslims are the most targeted community globally, it could have taken only one superhero movie to change the whole narrative, but sadly this didn't happen.
Our Humble Effort
We are just 2 brothers trying to make a positive impact by introducing the world to a superhero that genuinely shows the world what Islam is all about. BURAAQ, an animated micro-series, uses common Muslim phrases which translate only as Allah's blessing. When you see these phrases being used in Hollywood movies, they are often said to the villains. These small things are the ones that create the most impact, and BURAAQ shows that. The series has everything a comic fanatic will find interesting: a superhero who is all about courage and justice, a big bad villain who has every evil intention, and some fantastic animation even when the budget is nothing compared to the big banner movies.
Share And Make It Bigger
In today's time, there is no tolerance for Muslim traditions and practices. This micro-series can do wonders in making people see things rationally. You may wonder why we are putting so much of their effort and money into this. It is because this is what underrepresented people do. They create their own resources to tell the stories about their community. Anyone who has the skills or funds to make this project even bigger should collaborate with us so that millions of Muslim children worldwide can have a great idol to look up to and call it their own.
