ROOTS OF RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE IN PAKISTAN AND INDIA
With a rare mastery of history, religions, and depth psychology, Dr. Kamran Ahmad leads us through the Journey of the Soul in Heer, Ranjha, discovering what may be the only way to find harmony in the subcontinent. He shows how “fundamentalist” and “leftist secularist” discourses are alien to this region, but by recovering the Lost Feminine, there is hope for a truly authentic, indigenous means of peaceful interaction. Dr. Kamran Ahmad moves effortlessly and insightfully between the outer world of histories, religious discourses, conquerors and leaders and the inner world of the psyche. He shows how the inner world brings about politics, conflicts, and struggles in the outer world. Movements, activism, and efforts to find ways to co exist in the subcontinent; no matter how noble in intent, will fail if they neglect the psychological needs of individuals. This book has prepared the way for change that is sustainable, indigenous, and authentic.
