Marble Videos had the oppotunity to catch up with Omar Regan and the American Sharia team during their 20+ City tour of the UK. Omar Regan's goal was to promote his new movie, screening it in several locations, including Slough, where we were able to catch him.
Omar Regan entertained the crowd with his humerous comedy and witty speech. Not only was Omar able to entertain but he was also able to captivate the audience with an emotional and powerful story. In particular, Omar spoke about how he had lost his farther. Omar's farther was shot by the police in the United States, for the claim that he was trying to establish Sharia in America. The police later realised they had made a mistake and appologised to Omer Regan and his family. This life changing event inspired Omar to create the movie, American Sharia.
Omar invited members of the team on board, including his brother and son, who star in the Movie. Mujahid Carswell, brother of Omar Regan, spoke to us about his role in the movie. "I played a gunman... there were cops I was the bad guy". Mujahid told us that he was inspired by his older brother and also gave us some insight into their upbringing. "We were raised in the Masjid, we had good teachers'. Omar Regan and his brother grew up speaking English and Arabic, and describe themselves as a bunch of characters!
