Via NPR: “One Woman, Many Surprises: Pacifist Muslim, British Spy, WWII Hero”

This Tuesday, PBS is showing a docudrama about Noor Inayat Khan, an Indian-American Muslim woman who in World War II acted as a spy for the Allies in Paris. She was raised a pacifist but chose to work for the British as a liaison to the French Resistance. The movie is called The Noor Inayat Khan Story and NPR did an interview with the movie’s creators.
