This week, Niloufer Siddiqui reviews Politics of Desecularization: Law and the Minority Question in Pakistan, detailing the way in which author Sadia Saeed provides a thorough exploration of the shrinking political space accorded to Pakistan’s Ahmadi community as one example of the ways in which “contestations over religious truths become increasingly entangled with ordinary politics, nationalist classification struggles, and lawmaking.” Find her review here and the book here.
