Pakistani Novelist - Writing Against Terror

C

clovismonk

Pakistani born English novelist Nadeem Aslam, author of the booker prize shortlisted novel Maps for Lost Lovers, speaks about the role artists should take in the war against terror.

Aslam's novel, published last year, was set in the immigrant communities of Northern England. The same communities that produced the suicide bombers who attacked London in July.

Alsam, interviewed in Three Monkeys Online interview, comments:

"I always feel I should be doing more somehow. It has been interesting to see Muslim community leaders on TV saying they had no idea there was extremism in mosques and universities. Everyone knows."​

The interview is available online, free, at the following link:
