It is seven years since From Fatwa to Jihad was first published. The themes at the heart of the book – Islam, multiculturalism, free speech – are even more relevant now than they were in 2009. And in those seven years much has happened – from the emergence of IS to the ‘no platform’ debates, from the Charlie Hebdo killings to the migration crisis – that has pushed the debate on.
So, next year there will be a new edition of From Fatwa to Jihad, with an Afterword to bring the story up to date. The new working subtitle of the book – How the World Changed from The Satanic Verses to Charlie Hebdo – enjoins the old and new.
And, now, I’m off to write the Afterword…
Cannot wait to read! (I have the original of course).
Looking forward to it!
Congratulations. I’m sure it will bring you many new readers and admirers.
Thank you. New readers would be good :-).
