  1. Salam.

    I liked the whole interview but these words were of special interest for me:

    “We have consistently betrayed an Idea and the Idea in return has failed us and started transforming itself into a plethora of deadly ideas.”

    How do you percieve and define this ‘Idea’?

  2. assalamu alay’kum,

    You can read my perception in a previous post.

    I purposefully refrain from giving a particular ‘definition’ to the idea of Pakistan. I don’t think labels like rightist, leftist, liberal or secular would help us anymore. It would suffice to say, that the idea of Pakistan, even in its crudest possible form was somehow linked to Islam, Muslims and religious affinity.

    I have just written another post, elaborating more on the same thread. Will post it in a day or two, insha’allah.
