The Tragic Illusion Of An Islamic State (The Tragic Illusion Of An Islamic State) Paperback – January 1, 2017

by Tarek Fatah  (Author) 4.7 out of 5 stars 47 ratings

Tarek Fatah was born in Pakistan (1949) where he lived until 1978, twice jailed in 1968 and 1970 for his role in the pro-democracy movements to replace military dictatorships. After a third military coup in 1977, Fatah was charged with sedition and fired from his job as a reporter in the state television network, PTV.

In this book, the Pakistan born Punjabi author attempts to draw a distinction between Islamists and Muslims. What Islamists seek and what Muslims desire are two separate objectives…..one state requires a theocracy, the other a state of spirituality.
