Event description

 

DESCRIPTION

Pakistan, which prides herself on being a fortress of Islam, is one of the most dangerous places on earth. She was no doubt born as a bastard child of the British Raj and groomed as a prostitute on the world stage by Uncle Sam. Ill at ease with herself, she is a source of instablibilty in trouble and violence.

On the one hand the most powerful political party in the country, the Pakistan army, has in pursuit of the grandiose goal of strategic depth harmed an immediate neighbor Afghanistan while on the other hand their jihadist Ghazwa-i-Hind policies have led to wars with India.

The two speakers, who are book authors-- Professor Thomas H. Johnson, author of the Taliban Narratives (OUP), and Tarek Fatah, author of 'Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State' (Wiley). 'The Jew is Not My Enemy' (McClelland)--will also be available for book signing.

The American Friends of Balochistan is happy to have Professor Johnson in its fold.
