The Taqwacores, Islam and Punk Rock, now gain popularity among young Muslim in US

The TaqwacoresI am contemplating this novel by Michael Muhammad Knight. A portmanteau of taqwa, an Islamic concept of love and fear for Allah, and Hardcore, the punk rock sub-genre. Taqwacore thus refers to a genre of Muslim punk rock, existing only in the novel at the time of its writing, but since emerging as an actual genre.

Now on, I hope it will appear soon in Border.

Also read, (Link) A tale of sex and drugs among young Muslims, Brian Whitaker.
