    The book was an eye opener into lives and mentality of feudal lords, however what was quite obvious is that Ms Durrani is no saint as she expects people to conclude to, She herself was a debauchee, admitted to splurging the money without caring where it came from, admiring the two facedness of her double standard husband who really didnt care about the masses while pretending to be their saviour Ms Durrani in this book is less upset of how Khar fooled the people he claimed to represent, she is The book was an eye opener into lives and mentality of feudal lords, however what was quite obvious is that Ms Durrani is no saint as she expects people to conclude to, She herself was a debauchee, admitted to splurging the money without caring where it came from, admiring the two facedness of her double standard husband who really didnt care about the masses while pretending to be their saviour Ms Durrani in this book is less upset of how Khar fooled the people he claimed to represent, she isupset how he abused her individually, while abusing a woman is in itself inexcusable, w...

    Having grown up in India, I have always been interested in things happening in Pakistan We would view things in Pakistan with a sense of mystery There were so many walls between the two nations, there still are But things are easing Growing up, for me and many others during the cold war, Pakistan was always represented as this theocratic rogue, by the powers that be, always on the brink of war with India Tehmina Durrani s book, does not do much to dispel this myth But the fact that she sur Having gro...

    The book revolves around Tehmina Durrani, who belongs to ultra mod, westernized and well off family of Pakistan and Mustafa Khar the most prominent politician in Bhutto s regime, who belongs to conservative, traditional and typical feudal background These two people of opposite trait come close to each other but Tehmina s dream soon turns into nightmare when Mustafa s decency turns into brutality She divided this devastating account into three parts Lion of Punjab Mustafa who roars and de The book revolves around Tehmina Durrani, who belongs to ultra mod, westernized and well off family of Pakistan and Mustafa Khar the most prominent politician in Bh...

    I first saw this book on the bookshelf of one of my friend Upon reading its back cover and discussing about with the friend, I became intrigued Miss Durrani narrates about her life and that of her husband Mr Mustafa Khar s in Pakistan who is uncle of Hina Rabbani Khar For starters she herself is not that clean but honest nonetheless, as she was having extra marital affair with Mustafa Khar when she was already married something she reports here, it seems to me that some women enjoy the co I first...

    I found this book unreadably tragic Though I agree with some of the other reviews that the author comes off as insincere, I have to believe that most of what she claims is true, though possibly dramatized and exaggerated The blurb proclaims that the book is a devastating indictment of women s role in Muslim society and that it is a sensational European bestseller That should have made me cynical, but I picked up the book anyway.Upon reading the book though, Islam comes off as the junior p I found this book unreadably tragic Though I agree with some of the other reviews that the author comes off as insincere, I have to believe that most of what she claims is true, though possibly dramatized and exaggerated The blurb proclaims that the book is a devastating indictment of women s role in Muslim society and that it is a sensational European bestseller That should have made me cynical, but I picked up the book anyway.Upon reading the book though, Islam comes off as the junior partner in the oppression of Durrani The bigger problem seems to be her marriage to a psychotic, manipulative,...
