Texte du rabat

Ram Puniyani through his long struggle against terrorism and sectarian violence has come up with a strong argument to show that terrorism is a political phenomenon, either aiming to control the oil-rich areas or pushing an agenda of sectarian nationalism. He analyzes the underlying issues threadbare and throws in a lot of uncomfortable questions while deconstructing the ideological modus operandi of religion and violence. For all those who do not want their faith to be used as a mask!
