This book is a revelation of the human heart and it's often strange emotional attachments. The Fatwa Girl is a story that explores a society that is on the edge and of shattered innocence. Summary of the Book Young Amina catches Omar's eye when she is trying to teach herself to ride a bike. Her actions are considered defiant in the conservative and oppressed environment that they live in. However, Omar knows that she is special. In the modern day Pakistan, sectarian prejudices continue to dominate the people and fundamentalism is a threat to them. The alliance of a Shia and Sunni is strictly not meant to be, but Omar is unable to be affected by this. Amina has captured his heart with her grace and charm. He finds her lively idealisms irresistible and soon finds himself in a storm of her beliefs. They begin their war against the society, religion and mindless violence using poetry, music and occasional lust. However, the forces that they have set out to oppose begin to come into their lives in a disturbing manner. About Akbar Agha Akbar Agha is a Pakistani author, educator and former diplomat.
