Funny and sad, satirical and humane, How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position tells the interlinked stories of three unforgettable men ?the flamboyant Ravi, the fundamentalist Karim and the unnamed and pragmatic Pakistani narrator ?whose trajectories cross in Denmark. As the unnamed narrator copes with his divorce, and Ravi, despite his exterior of sceptical flamboyance falls deeply in love with a beautiful woman who is incapable of responding in kind, Karim?their landlord?goes on with his job as a cab-driver and his regular Friday Quran sessions. But is he going on with something else? Who is Karim? Why does he disappear suddenly at times or receive mysterious phone calls? When a 'terrorist attack' takes place in town, all three men find themselves embroiled in doubt, suspicion and, perhaps, danger. An acerbic commentary on the times, How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position is also a bittersweet, spell-binding novel about love and life today.
