By considering the need, nature and the objectives of this study, the TV series ‘strike back' has been used to point out ways in which the media portrays the Muslim community as terrorists. The research focused on critically analyzing how the characters of the TV series ‘strike back' are addressed. The TV series has seven seasons, and it is still going on, but the research focused on season one and season two because these two seasons have many terrorist attacks and compelling presentation of the Muslim community as terrorists. The analysis specifically focused on how the Muslim community, most especially Mahmud and other characters portrayed as terrorists are addressed in the TV series.
