Jihad Against Violence: Oh ISIS Up Yours!  is a non-linear play, offering snapshots of a world in rapid transition, torn by intra and inter-group violence, where the possibilities of transnational solidarities and rivalries between differently-situated Muslim women are explored in a humorous vein. In the wake of the continuing US-led “Global War on Terror”—the play signals the intertwined discourses of Islamic extremism, “oppressed” Muslim womanhood, and western neo-imperialism.
