ABC’s PRIMETIME ‘What Would You Do?’ Series stages a confrontation in a restaurant between a fundamentalist Muslim father and his immodestly dressed teenage daughter and waits to see how and if the other diners will react.
This episode shows how witnesses react to a girl who is unwilling to obey the strict customs of her fundamentalist Muslim family. While her parents and siblings are concealed in fundamentalist garb, she is dressed as a typical American teenager – without veil or headscarf. As her family accuses her of being corrupted by Western ways, she will fight back, insisting she just wants to dress – and act – like her friends. Unfortunately they skirt the issue of Muslim honor killings, and political correctness restricts what they are able/willing to do.
