Badshah Khan: Islamic Peace Warrior

by Heathcote Williams
£8.99   paperback  Thin Man Press (2015)

Badshah Khan: Islamic Peace Warrior by Heathcote Williams A book-length investigative poem from the author of ‘Whale Nation’ about the amazing life and legacy of Badshah Khan, Islamic Peace Warrior and friend of Mahatma Gandhi. As the violent excesses of Islamic extremist groups dominate the media, here is a timely account of another face of Islam...
 
Badshah Khan founded a 100,000-man ‘Peace Army’ during India’s 1940s sectarian conflict. A devout and prayerful man, whose legacy as a spiritual guide and champion of world peace lives on in the hearts of millions of Moslems. This Pashtun giant of a man spent much of his life in jail for his political beliefs, and was tortured by the British; yet he lived well into his nineties, tirelessly committed to his ‘jihad’ of peace, kindness and gentleness, which Williams depicts with clarity and passion, deftly employing the sensitive economy of poetry.
