The atrocities committed on September 11 were base deeds. The aftermath
continues to see further baseness.
The US-led war on terror has been and is being used to set a global course
of action with little respect for human life, national sovereignty and the
rule of law.
In the process, Muslims the world
over and the religion of Islam have become targets of irrational anger and
hate. Fortunately, there are many voices clamouring for sanity,
understanding and justice.

The Quest For Sanity -
the first book of its kind from a Muslim perspective - deals with the
many and varied challenges that the world now faces as a result of that
fateful day. It is a collection of over thirty accounts and analyses by
both Muslim and non-Muslim contributors - academics, journalists,
lawyers, human rights activists, community workers and ordinary souls
about the wide-ranging impact and aftermath of the Sept 11 terrorist
The book contains case studies and personal accounts of how Sept 11 has
affected people in the US, Britain and Europe.
It analyses the implications of the 'war on terror' for future world
order, the rule of law and civilized values. It examines the role of the
British media in fuelling Islamophobia: the irrational fear of Islam. It
goes into the historical roots of Islam in Britain. And there is an
important section on Islamic values and teachings about peace and war,
pluralism and living in a multi-faith society. And much more.
The Quest For Sanity
contains many uplifting moments and sobering accounts. At its heart is
an urgent call for increased dialogue and understanding between peoples.
The Quest For
an appeal and an enduring message, beyond September 11. It is a must
read book for our times.
