Before the review of the book I want to write to my blog readers
about why I found this book special . Dear readers if you watch international news on daily basis than you know that conflicts between the two separate sects of the religion named Shi'i Muslims and Sunni muslims are common , in Pakistan the conflict between Shi'i and Sunni is more intense .Millions of followers of Sunni and Shi'i Islam followers killed because of the conflicts of Shi'i and Sunni Muslim.This book made me courious to know more about Islam and the cause of conflict between Shi's and Sunni.
The book is written about Shi'i preachers and the about the discrimination against them . The writer wrote about the Shi'i preachers who were enrolled in a local Sunni seminary because there were difficulties to locate Shi'i religious school(madrasa) in Multan and how they were suffered by the discrimination of Sunni teachers.
