Shahan Mufti at Boston Book Festival: Islam and Pakistan
October 19, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Pakistan, the world’s first Islamic democracy, was once viewed as a bridge between Islam and the West. Now it is viewed as a threat. In The Faithful Scribe: A Story of Islam, Pakistan, Family, and War, Shahan Mufti, referred to by Kirkus Reviews as “an undeniable visionary,” tells the story of Pakistan through the lens of his family’s history, which he can trace back fourteen hundred years to Muhammad’s inner circle. Moderated by Boston University professor of anthropology, Shahla Haeri.
