My_Name_Is_Khan

 

My Names is Khan is an Indian film from 2010. It follows the life of Rizwan Kahn, a gifted young man with Asperger Syndrome, which limits his ability to show emotion and interpret the intentions of others. Yet, his greatest struggle comes with his identity as a Hindu Indian living in the United States. He is successful and happy with is life after coming to America, but the racial fallout of the 9/11 attacks takes a significant toll on his family, especially his wife. Because of their ethnicity, they encounter suspicion and ridicule, but in turn he shows love and compassion, in his long journey to speak to the president and say, “My name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist.” The film review includes discussion questions from a theological angle, including Scripture citations.
