Reading between the lines, Divided we fall

First things first, let me clarify my motivation – I have no axes to grind. No, I am not a ‘fundamental’ Muslim as extremists are characterized in popular press. No, I am not a ‘dooms day,’ prophet. No, I am not ‘psychotic.’ No, I am not a ‘mullah.’ No, I do not have any political aspirations nor do I want to lead a long march somewhere, no, sorry, no activism in my past either. No, my views don’t stem from discussions with any of my friends’ politics’ or religion. No, I am not easily influenced either because I like making up my own mind. No, I don’t have a closed mind By Fareeha Qayoom
