    1. Aarish Khan on said:

      The book is a decent analysis of the Shia Sunni violence in Pakistan and some important developments in Pakistan in the context of the Iran Saudi Arabia sectarian rivalry especially after the Iranian Revolution of 1979 I really enjoyed reading the first couple of chapters I will add though that the author seemed to have lost steam in the middle part of the book In any case, Khaled Ahmad has touched upon some controversial issues right from the first chapter and has substantiated his take on them [...]

    2. Mansoor Azam on said:

      A funded research turned into book format results in this title Not one, which I will recommend as THE book on the subject It is neither recommended for the novices who want to know about the issue or those with some knowledge about it intending to broaden theirs This one not so gloriously falls short on both accounts I think it served the purpose when it left the printing press one feather in the author s name apologies for being cruel here There s less of empirical build up about the matter T [...]

    3. Ahsan Raza on said:

      A complete ABC of Pakistan s seething Shia Sunni conflict, and the resulting violence that spilled into the 1990s and the 2000s The author gives detailed insight into the history of the opposing factions, with particular emphasis on the sub continent The part dealing with the sectarian killings in urban Pakistan appears to be a long drawn newspaper investigative story, but then again, Mr Ahmed is a journalist The intermittent spelling mistakes were a bit of a turn off though.

    4. Muhammad Jahangeer Thaheem on said:

      Brilliant peace of writing Sectarian war in Pakistan and its roots to middle east, the most important thing that writer briefly describes the true story and main causes behind this wave of war.

    5. Colin on said:

      This is a disorganized brain dump by the author There are snippets of interesting details scattered throughout on the origins of groups like Sipah e Sahaba or the Zia regime s relations with Iran or the domestic Shia population, but chapter long digressions on the history of the Sunni Shia divide, or detours into the Gulf states that don t ever link back to Pakistan, fail to cohere into any sort of structured assessment of the issues raised in the title.

    6. Abdul on said:

      Khaled Ahmad wrote a wonderful book on the topic of sectarian warfare in Pakistan and its genesis.
