Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Those who practice the Muslim faith have resisted examinations of their religion. They are extremely guarded about their religion, and what they consider blasphemous acts by skeptical Muslims and non-Muslims alike has only served to pique the world's curiosity. This critical examination reveals an unflattering picture of the faith and its practitioners. Nevertheless, it is the truth, something that has either been deliberately concealed by modern scholars or buried in obscure journals accessible only to a select few.

Book News Annotation:

Warraq is a pseudonym for a Pakistan former zealot, who does not claim to be a scholar or specialist himself, but quotes and paraphrases those who are, to augment the account of his own experiences and beliefs. This is a reprint of a 1995 publication. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 367-389) and index.
