Blasphemy : A Novel (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 224

This book is based on a true story that took place in Pakistan. It opens our eyes to the extent of distortion that can be caused in a religion by religious leaders.

Summary of the Book

Heer 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 Tehmina Durrani

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.

A good read

This book definitely makes for a good read and I was engrossed for the initial chapters. the torture and double standards kept at the pir, if it is indeed a true story, I would sympathize, with what the inspiration of the author has endured and offered. For a Coffee table reader like me, i must say, several cups were had in continuity. It gets confusing and somewhat nonsensical in the fall of the book, but The end is surprising and endearing.

Tehmina's a brilliant author

Such a heart wrenching book yet you can't stop reading at any point. Your heart will bleed, yet the author prevents the book from becoming too gory. While reading, it is very clear that all of this is reality and women are certainly going through torture like this. Hats off to authors like Tehmina who are gutsy enough to take on 'holy men' and expose them. I would recommend you to read this book because it isn't a book for feminists, but for anyone who is even slightly interested in the societal conditions in Pakistan.

An eye-opener!

This is not a novel that exposes the truth about Islam as many may mistake it to be. It is evident in the story that religion plays no part in the sins of a man. It is rather a depiction of how a man in power exploits his religion and preys on ignorant people who have blindly put their faith on such religious leaders with the hope of salvation. Durrani's prose style is remarkable and once you start, you won't be able to stop without completing the book, wondering what horror will take place next. It is brutal, excessively violent, horrifying and though it may seem that the author has exaggerat
