Little Mosque On The Prairie

Little Mosque on the Prairie is a Canadian sitcom on CBC Television. The series focuses on the Muslim population of the fictional rural prairie town of Mercy, Saskatchewan. The creator of the show is Zarqa Nawaz (pictured).

The title alludes to the classic American book and drama series, Little House on the Prairie. Unusual for a Canadian television series, Little Mosque received extensive advance publicity in international media, with profiles appearing in The New York Times, the Washington Times and the Houston Chronicle, as well as on CNN and the BBC.
This is why I say "God bless Canada" every single day because I would never be allowed to air a show on Saudi Arabian television called "Little Church in the Desert."
+ Canadians report least prejudice against Muslims: Canadians are least likely among citizens of 23 western countries to have bigoted attitudes toward Muslims, according to a new international study that measured the level of "Islamophobia" in each nation. More than 32,000 respondents from 19 European countries, plus Canada, the U.S., Australia and New Zealand, were asked the question: "Would you like to have a person from this group as your neighbour?"
The superior man is universally minded and no partisan. The inferior man is a partisan and not universal...
If you don't know how to serve men, why worry about serving the gods...
-- Confucius (551 – 479 BC)
