Shoot On Sight deals with the consequences of underground bombings in July 2005, highlighting the dilemma of peace loving Muslims, when the so-called cosmopolitan cities, especially London, were clutched by the fear of Islamic extremism and racial profiling. The story revolves around Tariq Ali; a Muslim police officer in Scotland married to an English woman. Tariq, investigating the police shooting of a suspected Muslim terrorist in the London Underground, is always distrusted by his superiors. What compounds his misery is the discovery of terrorist cell operating in his own backyard.
