My Friend The Fanatic (Travels With A Radical Islamist)
Description
From the Jacket

In October 2002 Sadanand Dhume found himself in a place most foreigners were trying to flee Bali. Powerful explosions the previous night had ripped through two tourist nightclubs killing more than two hundred people. That evening he visited what remained of the Sari Club and stood among piles of ash and blackened beer bottles wondering about the future of a country long regarded as immune to such carnage.

My friend the Fanatic is a portrait of Indonesia the world’s most populous Muslim country painted through the travels of a pair of unlikely protagonists, Dhume is a foreign correspondent a Princeton educated Indian atheist with a fondness for john unlike and an interest in economic development. His companion Herry Nurdi is a young Inlamist who hero worships Osama bin Laden.

Does Herry represent the future for Indonesia? By turns disturbing and funny my friend the fanatic fulfills a deep hunger for knowledge about a fascinating land in a time of profound change.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
