Personas of Holy Pretence is a psycho-political analysis of the negatively changed world especially post 9/11. Almost all sides have been afflicted in varying ways and degrees. This analysis compares the proud society in Pakistan that existed over three decades ago with the current intolerant crowd. Most analysis applies equally to Muslims in general, perhaps others too because human behaviour is largely universal. The book contains suggestions for reigniting dormant thought processes and injecting positive thinking.
