Standing Alone in Mecca

Sadia Dehlvi recently reviewed the captioned  book  for the weekly Outlook. The author of this book is Asra Nomani whose life story is quite fascinating. After reading this review, I am keen to sit down and actually read the book!

“In a charming personal narrative, Nomani navigates  through a crisis of faith brought upon by the murder of close friend Daniel Pearl by Islamic militants and an affair with a Pakistani man in Karachi that leads to a child out of wedlock. Wrecked with guilt and seeking to hold her son without shame, the young Indian born American Muslim back straps the infant and along with supportive parents and embarks on a pilgrimage to Mecca wrestling with contradictions of feminism and Islam. ..”
