9780140280043: Blasphemy: A Novel

Here is a beautiful woman who was forced into marrying Pir Sain when she was just fifteen. Her marriage to the evil man was followed by years of torture that stripped her of any dignity. She was left to deal with her husband s brutal and corrupted world. Pir Sain calls himself a man of God, but the cruelty meted out to his wife, several other women, his daughter and his son speaks otherwise. His ruthless behaviour is the cause for Heer s miserable life and extreme exploitation. Every day and night is filled with agony that she could never dare to speak about. As unfair and unholy as it is, all of Pir s actions are carried out in the name of the Almighty. This is a story about how many religious leaders of today take advantage of their power and the faith of believers.

About the Author:

Tehmina Durrani s first book, My Feudal Lord, caused plenty of controversy in Pakistan s male-dominated society as it spoke of her abusive and traumatic marriage to Ghulam Mustafa Khar. It also spoke of her experience with a feudal society. She is currently involved in the emancipation of women in Pakistan.
