This time, we meet Jamal, who was raised in an American Somali family. When he began questioning Islamic doctrine, his family locked him up in a room until he could escape the abuse. Later, he reconciled with his mother and she invited him back home.
That, it turned out, was a trick. And Jamal knew his life was in danger.
What a horrifying story.
As Jamal says early on, love in his family was never unconditional. It depended on whether he accepted Islamic beliefs. The moment his family knew he didn’t buy into that myth, he was no longer welcome in their home.
