A Letter to my Muslim Brothers and Sisters
A Rejoinder from Joel Hayward

Very Thoughtful Article
I am grateful to Nigar and Islamic Voice for introducing us to Ravi Melwani through her article, “Value Life, Make a Difference” in Islamic Voice, October 2012. Ravi Melwani’s practical and positive thinking will encourage people who are under the shadow of negativity about life. It is admirable that Melwani is not only a successful businessman, but also has penned so many books. The very purpose of the life of Ravi Melwani is covered in this couplet, “Darde Dil Ke Vaste Paida Kiya Insaan Ko, Varna Taet Ke Liye Kuch Kam Na the Karrobiyan.”
My respects to all at Islamic Voice for bringing out this thoughtful article.

Alone in Her Jihad
It takes a lot of courage and undaunted spirit to start a struggle against a monstrous group like the Taliban at the tender age of eleven. It was three years ago that Malala Yousufzai announced her fight against the Taliban at the Peshawar Press Club. She had boldly said to the press, “God and our Prophet (Pbuh) have bestowed me with the right to education. Why then are they hell-bent on robbing me of my right that has been guaranteed to me by my God and the Prophet”. In any other society, a girl like Malala would have received the support of the whole nation irrespective of the political and religious affiliations of its people. But in Pakistan, she feels alone in her jihad against the enemies of learning and knowledge, the Taliban. Worse, some so called scholars have supported the Taliban in a veiled way warning the government against a crackdown after the attack on Malala.
