The Fundamentals of Fundamentalism and Assorted Reflections

Mahmood bin Muhammad (Author)
Synopsis What comes from the lips" runs an Arabian proverb, "reaches the ears. What comes from the heart reaches the heart." Allama Iqbal, the renowned poet, said the same thing: The word that comes from the heart evokes response; Without wings, it has the strength to fly. The assorted collection of reflections and recollections presented in this volume, coming as it does from the heart of the writer, is bound to strike a responsive chord in the hearts of all right-thinking Indians. The work is a distillation of the writer’s vast and varied experience and knowledge of a wide spectrum of human behaviour observed as an academician and a judge, as a policeman and a prisons official, as a trainer and a researcher, as bureaucrat and a U.N. expert and, finally, as a finance man and a diplomat. The book encompasses subjects as diverse as religion, secularism, politics, diplomacy, good governance and development and such other burning issues of the day. The problems have not merely been identified but concrete and well-considered solutions offered. The book is bound to attract the interest of administrators, academicians, public men, police officials, students and scholars, besides citizens who are genuinely concerned about the welfare of the nation.
