Power & Piety

BAFTA Award-winning reporter Mobeen Azhar travels across the world to investigate the destructive links between religion and conflict.

Across the world, passionately held religious faith inspires conflict and violence. Wars are waged in the name of God. From Yangon to Utah, believers preach intolerance – even murder.

Mobeen Azhar is from Pakistan but he grew up between two worlds in Britain. He had seen at first-hand how beliefs can fuel intolerance. But he also got to know brave men and women who want to disentangle faith from conflict.

In this series of 5 stories, Mobeen embarks on an epic journey to find out why religious beliefs that preach a message of compassion can be harnessed to serve very different ends.
