This research paper is designed to examine the challenges of being a Muslim in America as dramatized in the play: Back of the Throat written by El Guindi. The research identifies the violence and stereotype as core themes in the play as expressed in communication between characters. Since the play is a faction because it presents real life experiences such as the aftermath of 9/11 attack on the World trade centre in 2001, the research then will justify the playwrights vision by presenting some non-literary text which are factually written to examine the challenges of being a Muslim in America. The text is in response to the 9/11 attack, and so references will be made to articles and journals that examines the problems Muslims face in America.
